5 questions with Linkin' Bridge
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It's been three months since Louisville's own Linkin' Bridge performed in the finals of America's Got Talent.
Since then, the talented group of four friends from the West End have been extremely busy with a number of shows all over the country. And they're not slowing down. Ekoe Alexanda, Big Rome Kimbrough, Shon "China" Lacy and Montre Davis have big plans for 2017.
But first, they are performing next Thursday night at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. Joining them on stage will be their manager, comedian Tom Mabe. This night of entertainment will benefit Blessings in a Backpack and 100 Black Men of Louisville.

+ Linkin' Bridge talks about what's next
+ Linkin' Bridge comes up short on 'America's Got Talent'
But they did pause long enough to answer my five questions.
1) How have your lives changed since America's Got Talent?
Everyone quit their old jobs with the exception of Big Rome who still works as a youth counselor for the Boys and Girls Haven. He keeps working there because he loves the kids. Montre no longer works at the grocery store and now goes to the gym and works on writing. China isn't a manager anymore at Chicken Kitchen and Ekoe's full time job is Linkin' Bridge.
2) You have a big concert coming up Dec. 8 at the Kentucky Center. What do you have planned?
We plan to give the friends of Linkin' Bridge a great show. Give a more intimate telling of our story so they can really get to know us and make them laugh, cry, sing and just have a great time with us.
3) Any future CDs you can tell us about?
We do have plans for an album that will mainly include our show hits and after that some originals are on the table.
4) What are you hoping 2017 will bring Linkin' Bridge?
We are hoping to break through some barriers and discover new lands by taking on bigger task and facing greater challenges. We are really excited for Derby 2017.
5) You have been spreading a message of harmony on the streets. Do you feel people are listening?
Someone is listening just like there are those who will ignore. The important thing is that the message is out there and are being archived
