Florida native Barry Brandon is a walking medical anomaly. By the age of five, he had undergone four open-heart surgeries and is granted a final wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. With a minimal life expectancy predicted by his doctors, Barry beats the odds time and time again. After learning that he would need to undergo his eighth open-heart surgery, Barry enlisted his long-time friend and director, Jordan Hackworth, to chronicle his life story in case he doesn’t survive the procedure.

Barry finds his voice for the first time by creating a one-man show where he tells his story through comedy, spoken word, and song, calling it, “In My Own Words.” After its premiere, Barry brings the show to 8 cities in different 6 states, spanning from NYC to L.A.

A renaissance man of entertainment, Barry has released a compilation full-length pop album on iTunes in January 2012. Finding a home in Atlanta, he has conceived, created, produced, and promoted a successful, monthly dance party titled Bedlam Presents. He has also created and produced an Atlanta-based singing competition, titled Sing for your Life. The show is massive success, spanning over multiple seasons and grabbing the attention of Atlantans year after year. With an unmatched appreciation for life, Barry lives almost nomadically between Atlanta, New York, Italy, and many cities in between, never quite fulfilled by the ordinary.
