Featuring an exciting performance by Brian King Joseph, The King of Violin

A revolutionary electric violinist with an inspiring story. This self-taught prodigy puts a rebellious spin on a classic instrument, wowing audiences with his explosive renditions of popular songs. Despite battling a debilitating nerve disease called peripheral neuropathy, King was a finalist on Season 13 of America’s Got Talent and the first winner of MTV’s music competition Cover of the Month.
