Meet Group 2 - Part 5

Matt Breitzke
Matt Breitzke (that's pronounced "bright-ski") is Group 2's version of Michael Sarver, with a few differences. Welder by trade, this 27-year old Oklahoman is a husband and father to a 3-year old son. He sang "Ain't no Sunshine" during his audition in Kansas City, and sang along side our very own Michael Sarver in Group Week. While he has a very good voice, we think Matt's downfall may be his huggable-teddy-bear look. Matt comes across as a hard working guy who can do a mean karaoke at the annual town hall July 4th barbecue.

Megan Corkrey
Megan is a great contender this season. Her Utah audition (her home state) impressed judges when she showed off her jazzy lounge singer voice with "Can't help loving that man of mine." During her back story, we learned Megan is a 23-year old single mom with a toddler and tattoos ranging over an entire arm. The Los Angeles Times compares her - in looks - to Reese Witherspoon, and - in voice - to a 1930's jazz singer. But the word is Megan's lack of TV time means she will need to give a steller performance to stand out in everyone's minds.
