The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview NFL All-Pro Philadelphia Eagles Star Jon Dorenbos of NBC’s America’s Got Talent:
Jon Dorenbos is an NFL player on the Philadelphia Eagles who was thrust into the national spotlight when he became the country’s most beloved magician during his magical summer long run to the finals on season 11 of “America’s Got Talent.” Dorenbos got in to magic just before his 13th birthday and instantly fell in love with it. Magic became an escape during a time of mourning and transition in his life as he was obsessed with the sleights and skills involved. He spent all day, every day, practicing and rehearsing in front of the mirror. Dorenbos’ aunt, Susan, had a friend, Ken Sands, who was a magician and she made the introduction. Sands became a mentor, friend and father figure for Dorenbos for years to come. Sands didn’t just teach Dorenbos the fundamentals of a trick, he taught him how to find himself as a performer.
