The Star Next Door has brought 2 mentors on board with Gloria Estafan and John Rich. The show plans on bringing 2 more mentors into the fold that will travel to the singers homes.

    well I just been writing songs for a long time and I know I can reach out and touch people with my music. All I need is the opportunity to prove it and a help and hand to do so. Help me reach my goals to success because I have plenty of music and also can write any kind of song you would like. The world will enjoy the music to and that’s a fact. I just need to be heard and pointed in the right direction. I already have platinum songs that I singed, just need to get out and broadcast them, so please give me this opportunity to show it.
