An amazing voice, Gene Simmons' hidden talent, and a surprise reunion: It's All Good News!

We have lots of stories from around Northeast Ohio and the globe to brighten your day!

CLEVELAND — Happy first week of November! Before you know it, the leaves will be changing and the holidays will be upon us. Are you in the holiday spirit yet? If not, we can at least put you in a good mood with those dose of good stories!

Up first, on this week's edition of It's All Good (News!) with Stephanie Haney, we have a huge honor for an Akron Public Schools teacher! Brian Johnson submitted his audition tape and was selected to sing the national anthem at the recent Browns versus Steelers game! He's sang it twice there with a group, but this was his first solo appearance- and we have to say- he killed it. Take a listen!

You can watch the entire episode below:

We also share a reunion rooted in brotherly love. 

A Mentor High school football player was getting ready for his game, when he got the biggest surprise. 

His brother, who's been away in the Navy- surprised him on the field! One of Mentor High's teachers tweeted out the moment. We dare you to watch it and not tear up just a little.

As parents, we always want our kids to grow up and make great friends, right? Well, why not the garbage man?! One little boy has befriended the man who collects garbage from his house every week, and we hope they're friends for life! Check out what his new best friend has to say about little Issac of Kentucky.

And, as if Gene Simmons wasn't already talented enough- he's showing off his new-found hidden talent! Turns out, Simmons is an incredible painter as well. He says he developed the skill in the pandemic and it just became a hobby. You won't believe how beautiful these pieces are!
