Jojo was part of Resound, a singing trio, who made their impact on 'America's Got Talent' two years ago with their humble personality and big vocals. The Richmond, Virginia citizens advanced to the live performances after playing 'What the World Needs Now Is Love' during their audition, but were eliminated in the quarterfinals. Jojo, the group's male vocalist, has re-entered the NBC reality TV show with the support of his little niece, Bri. The uncle and niece team competes against the other contestants to become the first singing duet to win 'AGT.'

The uncle and niece reveal to host Terry Crews in the second episode of Season 17 that they've been "singing online" for quite a while, and that this is their "first time singing live in front of an audience." Jojo confesses that the most important thing he learned from his first appearance on the program was "not to give up" in front of judges Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Simon Cowell. Bri expresses her excitement and nervousness about playing on the big platform, adding, “My dream is to make the world smile and make the world a better place.” Bri says she'd like to "give back to charity" with the million dollars once she wins.
