His name is Chris Medina he is a new contestant on this round of American Idol. I watched him tryout and his story is unbelievably touching and emotional. He told us and the judges about how he has been engaged to his love Juliana for 3 years now. After proposing to her they planned on a 2 year engagement. Yet one night she was in a terrible car accident and was paralyzed due to brain damage. Chris and her family had to postpone the wedding due to medical costs and Juliana's recovery.
Here is a song he wrote prior to the audition while Juliana was in the hospital.
