They have to be a naturally poor singer in every way — some people can certainly slip in and out of a melody, and that doesn’t work for us. It’s got to be somebody that is virtually tone-deaf.”

In March of 2020, everything in the world came to a screeching halt when stay-at-home orders were put in place due to COVID-19.
