When Christina Wells was born, the nurses told her mother that she was a "very entertaining baby".

Well, they had no idea how true that would become. The Houston-area native grew up singing any time she could, and she was voted "Best Performer" by her Pasadena High School Senior class. Her dream of a life on stage eventually led her to America's Got Talent, where she wowed the audiences and even Simon Cowell.

Since then, Wells has kept shining in the spotlight. Her latest project is starring as Ursula in Disney's The Little Mermaid at Theatre Under The Stars.

Wells joins Town Square to talk about her life, career, and more.

Plus, we discuss the latest in COVID as the second case of the omicron variant now reported in the US,
