‘AGT’ Winner Bianca Ryan Starts Podcast
Bianca Ryan’s new podcast is called “The Show Must Go On.” According to the visual she shared, the podcast will feature guests sharing their “stories of strength” and discussing “their experiences with reality TV, music, and the industry.”
There are seven levels of monthly memberships on Ryan’s Patreon, with different perks for each level. As of this writing, Ryan is at $285 of her $500 monthly goal. Ryan also shared that she wants to feature one of her patrons on her podcast each month.
Topics on the podcast will also include songwriting tips, lyric breakdowns, and thoughts on social media and reality TV. Ryan shared on Instagram that she’ll be doing exclusive live shows for her patrons, and anyone at the Platinum and Multiplatinum levels will be named producers of the podcast.
What Has Ryan Been Up to Since Winning ‘AGT’?
Ryan won the first season of America’s Got Talent when she was just 11 years old. She released her self-titled debut album in 2006. In 2019, she released a new album called The Reintroduction. She also released a Christmas EP called What the World Needs Now Is Love in 2020.
The singer returned to the AGT stage in 2019 to compete in America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Although she didn’t win, her appearance on the show marked a return to the spotlight as a more mature artist. Ryan also started her own beauty brand called Ciao Bianca.
The first episode of “The Show Must Go On” will be titled “Why I Never Thought I’d Sing Again.” This is likely about Ryan’s experience undergoing vocal surgery for a paralyzed vocal cord that could have stopped her from continuing her singing career.
