Remember our Oak Forest Idol? Well his first music video just made its debut online today!
I posted about Chris Medina just after his first appearance on American Idol last month. His inspiring story made him a big hit among viewers. His fiance was left brain damaged after a car accident in 2009, just months before they were set to be married. Medina never left her side and is now her caregiver.
The 26-year-old from Oak Forest made it through several rounds on American Idol. However, Wednesday night he was voted off. Even though Medina's Idol run is over, it seems his journey as a singer is just beginning.
Producer Rodney Jerkins was so moved by Medina's story, he wrote a song just for him. The song, "What Are Words," made it's debut online today. AMAZING! Take a look:
Medina will perform this song tonight on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. After that, there's no telling where his career could go!
Medina fans are hoping he gets called back to the American Idol stage. Every season, the judges are allowed to bring back a contestant as a "wild card".
Whether he's brought back or not, he's already proven to be an inspiration to people across the country. With his new song, he will only continue to spread a message of hope and kindness!
