CS4U: What is the inspiration behind your song, “Unbelievable”?

CS4U: What can fans expect from a concert of yours?

AJ Lehrman: “Fans can expect to be dancing and singing a lot. Non stop moving, and jumping up and down. I suggest to wear sneakers and a tank top because all that moving is gonna feel like a workout! Lol…but seriously I try to make my performances as interactive as I can, and I honestly really love meeting all of you, and watching you sing along.”

CS4U: What can you tell us about your involvement with

As we toured school to school along the west coast, many kids shared their experiences about bullying, and we altogether just tried to realize that there is no reason to bully anyone.
