Hollywood triple threat Jordan Fisher recently sang live for us in the Young Hollywood studio (that falsetto is faint-inducing).

The news has been heavy lately. So heavy. And it feels like it’s been non-stop: Since last Friday — when I heard about Christina Grimmie’s sudden passing — I have found myself intermittently tearing up at pieces of news trickling in, like the one about Luis Velma, a 22-year-old ride operator at the Wizarding World of […]
