To say the least, this first week of October has been a big one for “The X Factor” finalist Chris Rene.

All week long RyanSeacrest.com has been featuring Chris, as he debuted a new song off of his album, and released his first major label EP I’m Right Here. His extended play record shares 7 tracks with his listeners about overcoming struggles, falling in love, and much more. His smooth reggae-like vocals make us want to put his new EP on repeat. Chris has been very open about his struggle with addiction since his initial audition on “The X Factor,” and his strength and courage to overcome his battle is a prominent theme throughout this album.

If you could trade spots with any celebrity, who it would be?
If I could change spots for one day it would be with Stevie Wonder. I would like to see how he feels living life without being able to see. I’m sure he sees with his heart instead, and that would be cool.

When Did Your Career In Music Start?
Music started for me at age 12. My career started today October 2, 2012 because my first Major Label EP I’m Right Here is out now. So it has just begun & I know it is an uphill battle.

Do You Have A Name For Your Fans?
Renelians! We have an army called ‘Love Life Army’ because that is my message for everyone: to love and live their lives to the fullest!
