After hundreds of entries Bryan Popin has announced that 3 year old Emory Battise has won the #IGOTOUTCHALLENGE and a $150 cash visa card.
Emory lost his mother due to complications from a heart attack at only 10 months old. He is currently being raised by his grandmother and Auntie. Emory’s favorite artist is BRYAN POPIN and his favorite song is “I GOT OUT!” His grandmother, Tonja, says Emory must listen to the song over and over and over again everyday and just gets so happy he can’t even contain himself. Although she too loves the song, she just had to capture video of Emory singing and clapping to his favorite song while in his car seat.
