Chris Bivins – HoCo Red

You may remember Chris Bivins from the CW show “The Next,” as a mentee by rapper Nelly. Now the teen artist shows love to his home of Howard County, Maryland for their support of his blossoming music career on this debut single “HoCo Red.”

By enlisting the help of local businesses and other county residents with the song and video, Bivins is giving back to his supportive community, who have been down for him since he began winning local talent competitions.

Look out for his EP, “Two 11,” set for a February 2014 release.
