America's Got Talent winner goes back to his Alma Matter to perform there - Kenichi Ebina will once again step inside his alma mater to perform. Last year, he wowed the audiences with how he dances and interpret several video characters in just one performance. Back then, he can't say a thing when asked for a victory speech, but this time, he will have a lot things to say through his body language.

Last year, Kenichi Ebina had no trouble proving to the world that he was the best on "America's Got Talent." He manages to entice the audience with new and exciting ways of expressing himself -- dance, mime, video art, acrobatics, martial arts, spirituality. But, when his name was announced as the winner, he had troubled putting up words. "Kenichi, America has voted for you!" announcer Nick Cannon said to Ebina after Kenichi wins NBC's popular reality TV competition. "How does that feel?" Ebina can only replied, "Oh my God, I don't know what I can tell, but it's amazing!" The sums up to a $1 million – might have affected him in some way. But then again, he is kind of man that lets his action do the talking for him. On Friday, he will have something to say, through his body language when he returns and performs at his alma mater, University of Bridgeport's Arnold Bernhald Center for the Arts & on March 28. Ebina noted how glad he is to visit his alma mater. He hopes to see everyone from his era. Though, he finished mass communications, Ebina excelled in performing arts. In class, he was among of the star students that stand out from the rest, because of his creativity and natural talent. During his free time, he formed Soul Beat, a dance group that wowed students and faculty with performances at UB's annual International Festival. Jeffrey Johnson, director of the music program at the University of Bridgeport who taught Ebina said that Kenichi has revolutionized dancing in their school. But, when he performed on “America’s Got Talent” there was no one to back him out with his dancing. He had to do it all alone as he did performed like he had several people around him during that time. He was like a character in a video game that started fighting one another. Howie Mandel, a judge on "America's Got Talent," called him as the "most talented man here." His colleague, Howard Stern agreed and praised the dancer for his talented and interesting act. And as he performed week after week, the viewers all see why. But, that didn’t impress Ebina as he is still in disbelief up to this day. He can’t explain his success. He muttered that he was just hoping to win the third or fourth spot since there are 75,000 contestants that performed during those times. Ebina is the first dancer to win the talent show -- he dances kike there was a dozen of him portraying different video characters.
