We were lucky enough to attend the American Idol Press Session today at the Bank Atlantic Center. We met David Cook, Syeesha, Ramielle, Jason Castro and Brooke White. They could not have been more gracious and humble! We gave David Cook a copy of an interview that Nicole did with Michael Johns back in 2003 to pass along.Videos to come ASAP.
As many of you know back in 2003 Nicole and Jeff interviewed Michael Johns, then known as Michael Lee. He was the lead singer in a band called The Rising. As I’ve said over and over again, today’s emerging artists turn up as tomorrow’s big stars. Michael is no exception. Jeff had a copy of th advance of The Rising’s album and unfortunately we think it went down with his car which was destroyed while being shipped to Cali where Jeff now works for E. When he was eliminated in one of those “American idol shockers” we were all saddened. On a brighter note though, he can get to making his own album that much sooner. Look for it in 2009. We will.
