Fun Friday: “American Idol” Contestant with Austim Brings Judges to Tears

Welcome back,
Since I am preparing to do another interview next week, I thought I’d make this another “fun” Friday- highlighting another American Idol contestant.

American Idol does it again, encouraging young artists to go for their dreams despite whatever fears they may have. 28-year-old Sam Finelli sang his own rendition of Kasey Musgrove’s “rainbow”; during the audition, Sam also opened up about his struggles with autism and interacting in social situations. He even wondered if he was “good enough” for the show. The judges’ answer was a standing ovation and three yeses to the next round. Please take time to watch this YouTube. It proves that handicaps are not always seen as disadvantages but as “gifts.”
