NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Brian Kelley rose to fame the hard way, in small clubs, little money, and van road trips across the country. He'd love to make that road easier for someone with the same desire.

“I’m looking for the it factor, from any gender or ethnicity, who could be a star and certainly can sing,” Kelley said. 

He's' hooked up with a group called Protege that makes dreams come true. Alexys Feaster says it’s a program designed for all genres, not just music. All you need is a 60 second audition tape and a leap of faith.
