Kentucky youth works his way into showbiz

CADIZ - 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, Sabina Allen, one day in January when he asked how he could be on TV.

"Brody just one day asked, I think a typical kid question, 'How do those kids get on TV,' and when I explained the process he was very interested and really wanted to know more - really wanted to know why he couldn't do that."

The answer was, he could do that.

A few days later, Sabina 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.

"He went through (iPop) with flying colors," Sabina said. "Things just started falling into place."

The next month, Brody was in Nashville auditioning at a regional talent event.

At the showcase, Brody scored six awards for best monologue, best photo, best commercial, best child actor, best child model and best runway.

By the end of that week, Brody had about eight agencies interested in representing him.

"He was totally in his element," Sabina said.

"He loved it and I needed to see that."

"They already wanted me to come back," Brody added.
