You may recognize this name if you tuned into season ten… or eleven, I lost track, of American Idol last night. Personally, I stopped watching after we were wrongly “let go” when Phillip and I auditioned in Kansas City in 2008. (I tend to hold grudges for a long time). However, about a week ago I got an email from my friend Chris. He explained he was going to be on the show but “show rules prohibitted him from broadcasting it to the world.” I am not sure how far he makes it, but all I can say is, if he makes it to the voting rounds, he is deserving.
I worked with him at Starbucks for a year and a half. We developed a fond friendship and he was always sharing new song ideas (singing while making coffee) and inviting me to come record with him, but I was always too busy…eh hem, excuse me for a moment (stupid, stupid stupid)! Okay I am better now. For those of you who missed it, here he is. They saved the best for last, this was the last audition of the night and I think it is safe to say, he has great talent and will go far, regardless of how he finishes.
