X FACTOR FINALIST: 4SHORE
The name 4Shore pays homage to the group’s hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Consisting of Allynn (CynCere), Brandon (B. Show), Daijreous (Dai Dream) and Jessie (J. None), four childhood friends determined to leave a lasting impression on the music industry and be the cure for the dying breed of “boy bands”. Having known each other for years, 4Shore decided to come together and perform for the annual Beachstreet USA series. Night after night, 4Shore honed their craft in front of adoring audiences which consisted of tourist from around the globe. With the ability to draw a crowd, it wasn’t long before the group had industry A&R’s and record label executives on the lookout for the talented quartet.
In 2011, the group auditioned for Simon Cowells “The X-Factor USA”. The young quartet took a risk and performed the L.A. Reid penned “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men in front of L.A. Reid himself. After a standing ovation from the judges as well as the audience, it seemed 4Shore was unstoppable. Advancing through to 3 phases of the competition, 4Shores X-factor dreams were surprisingly cut short when Paula Abdul opted not to bring them any further. However, this has not deterred 4Shore from their dream of making a career in music.
4Shore is more than just a group of guys who sing, they are talent in all the fields of entertainment. From being sought after event performers, host, and mentors, the best is truly yet to come.
