The Best Music Podcast #37 | Ricky Duran — Mega Star | Transforming Pain into Suicide Prevention

Ricky Duran garnered international attention with his soulful vocals, fiery and tasteful guitar playing and compelling performances on NBC’s The Voice. The Season 17 Runner-Up has since released a single charting at No. 1 on iTunes and sold out shows, showing himself to be more than a fleeting show success – he retained fans and amassed more. He truly is an irrefutable talent and electrifying entertainer making music for the soul. 
His new single “Waiting On You” is out now, everywhere you get your music!
