CADIZ, Ky. (AP) — Anyone who has ever sat down to watch TV has, at some point, seen something on that screen that made them think, "Wow, that's cool, I wish I could do that."
Such was the case with 6-year-old Brody Allen, who was watching TV with his mom one day in January when he asked how he could be on TV.
A few days later, his mom heard an ad on the radio for an iPop event in Clarksville, Tennessee. iPop — or International Presentation of Performers — is a sort of mass talent scout event where children can audition as singers, actors, models and dancers for agents, managers and casting directors.
The next month, Brody was in Nashville auditioning at a regional talent event. Soon afterward, he was off to Hollywood.
