I know no one really watches that show and the winners go nowhere except maybe to play concerts at "Gabby's", hence they aren't even going to make Canadian Idol anymore... but he's an awesome singer, not to mention musician. He's classically trained in piano, and self-taught in guitar.
If you're one of those people who just watch the first few rounds to see all the shitty singers you may recognize him as the sweaty armpit guy.
In one of the first rounds he sang "Angel" by Sarah McLaughlan and it brings on goosebumps.
As Idol went on I told everyone to vote. I even got one of the old dentists at my school to vote... Even though she only did it because she thought he was MY cousin... Not my "cousin-in law" that I haven't actually met yet.
For the finale we had my sister's husband's whole family over to watch on our big screen and we were all screaming when he won.
I finally heard his song on the radio the other day (QMFM baby... love it!) Well, the song is called Sing, and it kinda sucks... but it's the Idol song, so what do you expect. Hopefully his CD to come will display his true talent.
Here some of his performances that don't suck:
Besides these there are a huge amount on YouTube... just search him.
He's actually pretty cute too. Even though he kinda looks like my brother-in-law. Jury's still out on straight vs gay. Well, when I say that I mean I don't know, he probably does.
