CLEVELAND — April is officially here, and hopefully that means warmer days and instant mood boosts! If you need some assistance with that in the meantime, let us be your guide! Here's the good news this week:

First up- we need to give a huge shout out to 16-year-old Emyrson Flora of Hudson. She is our Win of the Week, after just making it to the Top 24 of American Idol! Emyrson is a Walsh Jesuit student and before the spotlight, just used to perform for friends, family, and on social media. She only got serious about singing at 10 years old, but she's clearly made for it. She recently got a standing ovation from judge Katy Perry for her rendition of Adele's "Love in the Dark'.

Check her out!

For our Good Vibes Only segment, we are melting over the shout out a local veteran's two sons gave him. Brian Krusz is getting ready to leave for Poland on Saturday to help Ukrainian refugees. Before he left, his sons wanted to wish him well on the country radio show "Carly's Country" on WOBL. His surprise is priceless! Check it out below and help us in sending good vibes his way. Brian returns to Northeast Ohio Easter night.

You can help them out by still donating money that will be brought to Poland, here.
