CINCINNATI – From singing in his school’s choir since the first grade to singing on television screens across the nation, one West Chester man is competing for a chance to be in a “boy band.”

Nate Wyatt, 20, is among the 30 contestants that will compete in the singing competition “Boy Band” on ABC.

“Boy Band,” hosted by singer Rita Ora, is a new series where talented singers battle it out to become a member of the next great music sensation. The show will star Emma Button, Nick Carter and Timbaland according to ABC.

Viewers at home will also be able to vote for their five favorite band members, live, creating a group America can “truly call its own.”

For Wyatt, who will sing “Let Me Love You” by Mario in the first episode, auditions were intense but he was not nervous about singing.

“If I want to do this, if I want to act, if I want to sing, you can’t be nervous,” Wyatt said. “That’s not going to be the reason why I screw up.”

Wyatt graduated from Lakota West and moved to Los Angeles in 2016 to pursue a career in acting.  

While in the Tri-State, Wyatt studied acting under the guidance of mentor Jake Lang, owner of Wings Model Management.

“Boy Band” airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.
