The multi-platinum vocal group 98 Degrees got together one more time this year to help band-mate Nick Lachey wrap up another season of The Sing Off.  I was surprised the guys didn't perform their own holiday hit "This Gift" but did an amazing job with the classic "I'll Be Home For Christmas."  The guys enjoyed a successful reunion tour this past summer alongside NKOTB and Boyz II Men.

We had founding member Jeff Timmons in St. Cloud last month with Men of the Strip at the Red Carpet Nightclub.  He announced the guys will be heading to Reality TV (E!) in 2014 and will continue to tour the U.S. and Canada.  Jeff said the guys will set up residency in Las Vegas soon and plans to release new solo music in the new year.

On another note, the winners of The Sing Off are represented by St. Cloud agent Gary Berg and hail from Minneapolis.  Home Free, an all-male country a capella group picked up the trophy, $100,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music.  The Sing Off nationwide tour kicks off in February 2014.
