VIDEO: Boy Band sings Happy Birthday to reporter, Is this “In Real Life”?

When Brady, Chance, Drew, Michael and Sergio, won ABC’s summer reality show “Boy Band” last year and became “In Real Life”, their lives changed forever.


And a couple of weeks ago, when I met them and interviewed them for Press Pass Latino on my birthday, they kind of changed mine. Haha, yes! I mean, who wouldn’t like getting serenaded by five talented boys on their birthday?


Now, I’m going to want something similar every year…whose next?


But real talk though, since winning the competition, the boys from In Real Life have accomplished many milestones. They were signed by Hollywood Records and nabbed their first iHeart Radio Music Award “Best Boy Band” nomination. They’ve made their way down many prestigious red carpets and have gone on to perform on Live with Kelly & Ryan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Good Morning America and TRL.


Their first single “Eyes Closed”  has reached over 5.4 million streams and over 2 million video views on YouTube. And now they have fans, and us!,  falling in love with their new single “How Badly”, which by the way was recorded in Spanglish!


And don’t worry, though it was my birthday, I got all the details about In Real Life’s latest single for you. And had them dishing on what they felt when they first auditioned for “Boy Band” and what they miss the most about living a “normal” life.


So yes, that’s my gift to you, enjoy! And yes, I pinched myself after…this is my job and this is In Real Life.
