Voice first found a love for music as a child when his grandma introduced him to church. She knew he had a gift inside of him that lead him to get the gift of a happy meal after he would sing. As he got older, he looked up to someone like Sisqo as far as artist creativity and taking music to a different direction. After Voice realized his own talent and potential as an artist, it would eventually lead to a career with an Atlanta supergroup, Hamilton Park, whom in which all four members are inspired by power groups/artists such as Dru Hill, Jagged Edge, Babyface, Donell Jones, Jodeci, etc.
Chris Voice is known as the "lover" of the group because of his soulful spirit and the strong emotional connection he has to his sound. He as well as his members call themselves the Love Connoisseurs because of their strong understand of love and the power that R&B music has that some might say has fizzled out. "R&B is love," said Voice, who feels that expressing R&B in a very tasteful and mature will really demonstrate the idea of courtship in which Hamilton Park displayed in their 2011 mixtape, "We Do It For The Sheets." They feel as though chivalry is not dead, it's just simply not talked about.
While still being heavily involved and devoted to his group, Voice tried his own avenue with his own mixtapes. He released a very heartfelt single, "I'm Just Sayin," early 2016 which showed him waking up to his daughter playing in the same home he grew up in. The song and video is very dear to his heart because it gives fans a sense of where he came from and who he became both as a group member and a solo artist.
Early this spring he released his latest hit, "Say No More," that he is very proud of and is hoping to release more relatable tracks on a future EP hoping to come out June 2017. As far as his group Hamilton Park, he definitely sees better things happening for them as long as they maintain the faith that they've always had. He knows the fans will not be disappointed.

Matt Brooks (slice) and Glory Kim (rice), started off having their own individual youtube channels and then combined a channel once they started dating. The name came from Brooks love for pizza and Kim's love for rice. Most of their content consists of sketch comedy and challenges all in the name of Jesus. Their focus for their videos was to show that you can add faith to humor without being too preachy.
In one of their videos they demonstrated their love for Christianity in their Genesis 2,0 video which is still Brooks favorite video to date. The former atheist really brought to light the modern day version of Adam and Eve's first encounter with God alongside with Kim. Kim informed that her favorite video was when her and Brooks did the Boyfriend challenged because it represented their honeymoon stage and their faith as a couple even through comedy.
Their journey as slicenrice hasn't always been easy as a couple. They took it a step further when they expressed to their viewers/subscribers that they were practicing abstinence. It was a decision that wasn't necessarily expected for either one to make, but realized they had to put God first and know that it would add some benefit to their relationship in the long run as long as they stay devoted to their Christian beliefs.
With the love that they have for each other, they plan on continuing to do more sketch comedy that will hopefully send more positive energy and love to viewers. Brooks says he looks up to someone like Dave Chapelle as inspiration because of his content and having the fearless ability to be himself which is what Brooks and Kim get to do on youtube.

Scouted by the creator of the show herself, Tyra Banks, Scocozza really didn't know what to expect when the supermodel approached his ice cream truck asking if he did any modeling. He informed that he had no experience, but he decided to take it in consideration once he finally realized that the woman who asked him about his experience was Tyra Banks the whole time.
Once casted onto the show to be a semi-finalist, the 6'4 ice cream man, had no pre-conceived notions of what might happened next. Once he introduced himself to his first meeting with the judges, he proved to have great potential with his story, charm and, height. Little did he know that he would end being part of the top 16 as an official cast member of "America's Next Top Model."
His time on the show was definitely a journey for him. He managed to win best photo for his shoot with Victoria Secret fashion supermodel, Alessandra Ambrosio, but sadly was eliminated the next week. During his time, his favorite photoshoot to do was on their trip to Bali, Indonesia, when he shot with Chloe the Orangutan and least favorite was for the questionable commercial cross-dressing.
After the show, he informed that he learned about himself and to be comfortable in your own skin. With Tyra Banks recognizing his potential, he appreciates the opportunities that sets the tones for his career and doesn't take anything for granted.
Currently Scocozza still models, but is also focusing more on running a catering show. His specialty is oysters and is hoping to make a career with his cooking skills that were unfortunately not show enough on Top Model.
