I first heard about KRNFX when he was performing at a Kollaboration Toronto show and I was in awe. That’s when my respect for beat-boxing ignited. A couple of years after, I’ve personally had the chance to meet Terry Im, KRN FX, while he was in Toronto at a KCUTSA event back in February 2012. Being able to photograph this event, I introduced myself and found myself quite comfortable talking to him because of his calming demeanour.
But don’t get me wrong, he ripped apart the show with his beat-boxing sets.
Next thing I know, he was in a Coca-Cola commercial featured on Much Music and a Telus beat-boxing commercial. Now 3 months later, and I found out that he’s up for the semi-finals for Canada’s Got Talent. HE is BLOWING UP!
So, let’s all reach out and support him as a community. Toronto has some serious talent and let’s show Canada what we’re made of!
