High Notes with Cheyenne Reece: Catching Up with the 'Listen to Your Heart' Star
It’s been just over a year since the inaugural season of “The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart” finished airing on ABC.
The spin-off followed single singers and songwriters hoping to find love with each other through a shared passion for music. As viewers will recall, contestants performed well-known songs together — while also exploring their relationships with the help of “Bachelor”-style dates that focused on music. A handful of notable artists came in to act as guest judges throughout the series, such as Kesha, Jason Mraz, Toni Braxton, Ashlee Simpson, and Jewel.
But it was the gifted cast members who continuously stole the show with powerful vocals and, of course, major drama. So, what have they been up to since the competition concluded and cameras went down?
BachelorNation.com is progressively checking in with the cast, who are sharing love life updates, favorite memories from filming, musical milestones, and more.

As far as being an artist in my short time being there, I will say it helped me deal with nerves.
What is your favorite memory from filming?
My favorite memory was when all if not most of the cast gathered around the piano and sang. We all created a great and memorable moment. That was the night before I went home. One of the songs we sung was “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire. The song was not only a favorite of mine, but my sister and dad’s.
If you have any regrets from your time on the show, what would you have done differently?

How did the show impact your outlook on love?
The show impacted my outlook on love by showing me what I still want. I want someone who can relate to my career or the career I want. I feel as though once you find love, it should be true and honest.

I bonded with everyone on different levels.
Would you ever date a musician again?
Yes, I want someone who can relate to my love for music. I understand just because something didn’t work out on the show doesn’t mean you can’t find love.
