Recently I have had the unique pleasure of watching a close friend’s son come close to being the next American Idol.
It’s Jonny Brenns if you are watching; as of now, he is in the top 14!
This experience of watching Jonny shine has been marinating my soul on many different levels for the past few weeks. I have never watched American Idol before. From where I stood, I only saw the harsh and unsupportive style of Simon Cowell, the originator of American Idol. He was well-known for dissing contestants and in my opinion possibly putting an end to their dreams and calling. I simply wasn’t interested in watching any human face such harsh discouragement.
