Johnathan Estes
Johnathan Estes

A native of Paducah, Kentucky, Johnathan now lives in Marion, Illinois. As a child, he grew up listening to a wide variety of music and artists and fell in love. He had the opportunity to attend several concerts in Paducah and always dreamed of being the person performing on stage. However, Johnathan was very shy. Now, being the "talker" of the group, Johnathan has grown out of his shy personality. Always acting silly and adding his comical charisma on stage, he can also have a very serious side. Johnathan is very dedicated to serving the Lord and spreading the gospel using the gifts and talents that he has been given. Bringing others closer to GOD is his number one goal. Johnathan devotes all of his time and energy to bringing the great music and talents to the fans.

Edwin Linson

Having lived throughout the country, Edwin now resides in Carterville, Illinois. He has been with Blend since May of 2016. Music is a relatively newfound passion, and he has only been singing for a few years. He still sings with the John A Logan choir and chamber ensemble, to which the group owes its origins. Edwin's love for the music of the 50's and 60's began when he heard the beautiful ballad called "A Change is Gonna Come", by Sam Cooke. This song he even performed for the Herrin Festa Talent Show in 2015, where the group had its initial success. He, like the group, also placed first. Although he is still new to the music world, he loves music, especially those soul-stirring songs of the 1950's and 60's, as much as anything else.

Nik Berry

Nik has been with Blend since 2013 where he auditioned as a bass singer. Nik had a passion for music at a young age and the church choir in his hometown of Metropolis, Illinois is where it began. His experience singing in choir at junior college renewed his interest in singing as he got older. Now in his early 20's and still living in Metropolis, he studied Alternative Energy Engineering. Being the center of attention was never his strong point, but being in Blend has completely changed that, helping him become the goofy and outgoing person he is today. He never expected he could become part of a group such as this, but he can't thank God enough for the blessed life he's given him. "We never know what God will put in our paths," Nik said, "I've always enjoyed being a part of music whether it was in the band or the choir. I really enjoy the friendship and fellowship we all share with Christ. Although we're not actual brothers, no matter what, we will always be brothers in Christ."

Aaron Chamness

Aaron has been a member of the Blend team since 2010. Aaron has been involved in music since his birth, being raised up in southern gospel music. "My father sang baritone in a gospel trio since before I was born. We used to always go to his singings as a family. I heard what tight, 3-part harmony was supposed to sound like, and I also had an appreciation for the importance of family because we always did everything together. Growing up in a strong Christian home was a blessing, one I appreciate more the older I become." Though diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 3, Aaron has not let that stop him from performing. He has been performing since his childhood, when he and his brother would often sing a song or two at his father's singings. Aaron has a great appreciation for the element of performance. "It's more than going on stage and singing the songs the best you can. It's about engaging your audience and bringing them with you throughout the show. Blend has taught me to open up a little bit and become more interactive, something I've not really done before. I was always in a group with someone else who did the bulk of the talking. It's a fairly even spread with these guys, and I am thankful to be a part of the team."
