    Final Melody, a post-collegiate group from the Chicago area, spent time with Rachael late in 2018, talking about their experiences with America's Got Talent, the Harmony Sweepstakes, and growing a group after college.

    Our mobile studio goes to some odd places - hotel rooms, meeting rooms, classrooms - and, in this case, a very small dressing room.

Interspersed are some of the songs from their live performance the night before at BOSS 2019.
