Byron Nicholai's story has been shared on KTUU.com and his Facebook page I Sing. You Dance. has quickly gained new followers, up to 7,800! Nicholai told KTUU that the name of the page comes from something he noticed while performing at Alaska Native dance festivals. “Elders in the crowd would inevitably start nodding their heads to the beat. He sang, they danced.”
Here's his latest video from November 15th.
