The 26-year-old performer has already been honing his musical talent by packing weekly shows at The Sayers Club in Los Angeles directly after competing on Dancing with the Stars.

"The video is a trailer for what you can be expecting at a live show or when the album is finally complete," Ballas says. "I think it gives you a really clear taste of what's to come.
