Michael Ketterer — Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer Winner on America’s Got TalentBillboard.com said, “Although raising six children is a talent in itself, Michael Ketterer graced the stage of America's Got Talent with a rousing vocal audition on the June 5th episode, earning him the second golden buzzer of the season from judge Simon Cowell. "My family's my reason why I'm here," the pediatric mental health nurse explained before his performance. "My wife and my six children." Ketterer, who adopted five of his children, continued: "When you're surviving, you can't dream. And that has been one of the most rewarding things, is providing them with a home and a safe environment where they're free to dream." Although admittedly and noticeably nervous, Ketterer gave a raw, impassioned rendition of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" that elicited a crowd-wide standing O and hardly any dry eyes. "When we find singers on these shows, is it about being technical? Or is it about being relevant?" Cowell explained to Ketterer. "Sometimes, for me, it's just about being real and a surprise. If I'm being honest with you -- 'cause you were so nervous -- I was concerned for you. But I think sometimes, actions speak louder than words." Simon's actions spoke a mouthful as he then stood up to slam the coveted golden buzzer, giving Ketterer his one-way ticket to the live rounds.

Kenny Luck — Author of Dangerous Good: The Coming Revolution of Men Who CareGood men are in high demand but low supply. That reality is creating suffering and injustice at every level of society in every community worldwide. Dangerous Good calls on the millennial generation of men who follow Jesus worldwide to confront that by deciding, individually and as a group, to be dangerous with goodness like Jesus. In the wake of the #MeToo movement and ever increasing violence, there has been a cultural shift that is calling men to be who they were designed to be. Kenny Luck is starting a revolution of men who care in his new book, “Dangerous Good.” He uses examples from his own life, growing up with an absent father and experience as a men’s pastor to get to the core of the issues seen on the news today, men’s hearts. By wakening men to what is at stake, Kenny aims to help the next generation of believers get on the path of discipleship and be faithful men like Jesus. “Dangerous Good” is the start of a global movement of men learning to live out their truest identity and in turn becoming better disciples, husbands and fathers. *Kenny Luck founded Every Man Ministries in 2000 to revolutionize men's ministry, free men spiritually and ignite spiritual health worldwide. He is currently the leadership pastor at Crossline Church in Laguna Hills, California. Prior to serving at Crossline, he was the men's pastor at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California from 1997 to 2014.

LIVE! on TDMS - Devoted Souly to the Art of Music
Willard BondWillard Bond is a prolific independent singer/songwriter performing and recording in the roots/rock tradition, and then some. Growing up near Guelph, Ontario, he developed an early and deep appreciation for the music of Hank Williams, Queen and Peter Gabriel. Willard has recorded several albums, from "Men in the Moon", in 1993, to the instrumental "A Few Small Strings" in 2015. Now he's releasing "Jiggery Pokery", with 14 varied tracks and a few short surprises. Rather than tour, he's fallen back into the studio for three more EPs, helping get a WW2 war memoir published, and produce a video every week (!) for release with each song on the new album. Along with a passion for military history and films, Willard holds a third degree black belt in karate. He lives in Toronto with his cats Moneypenny & Jeff, where he works as a recording engineer and self defence instructor. www.willardbond.com
