Côte Saint-Luc's Brandon Elbaz, an 18 year old graduate of Bialik High School and present-day Media Art Studies (Communications) student at John Abbott College in Ste. Anne de Bellevue, has cracked the coveted top 40 in the MuchMusic Canada-wide VJ Search.
"My passion is being in front of the camera and producing music in my home studio," he shared with me. " I knew that this is what I wanted to do following my first class at The Montreal School of Performing Arts, which sparked passion and love for the creative arts. With thousands of submissions Canada wide, to be named within the top 40 contenders has been a dream come true."

"Growing up I was that kid who would engolf himself in the crazy world that is pop culture," he said. "While all my friends where playing video games 24/7, I was downloading album after album, and spending endless hours on the internet and watching MuchMusic discovering new artists and bands. Music and pop culture is my life and it will be in my life till the day I die. I was born to be on MuchMusic."
