My story and my mission

I was born and raised in my home town: Raleigh in North Carolina. As a young boy, I sang in the Raleigh Boychoir and as a young adult with a local band: Just By Chance.

I attended Raleigh's Leesville Road High School before enrolling at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Although my American Idol activities temporarily delayed my academic pursuits, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in special education in December of 2003. I found my interest in special education while directing YMCA children's camps as a teenager; at age 19 I served as a substitute teacher for a classroom of students with autism at Brentwood Elementary School.

While attending college in Charlotte I took a part-time job as an assistant to a boy with autism, and it was this child's mother, Diane Bubel, who urged me to audition for American Idol and rest was the history. Being good always pays off in strange ways... now I can do more. I use my voice on events and concerts that benefit kids, mission as UNICEF National Ambassador, is to help ensure that children everywhere are afforded a primary education. Spare some of your time and join good cause. These kids need it and we can help...
