More American Idol.....

With all the excitement about the new season of American Idol (as well as our new video of Renaldo Lapuz's, "I Am Your Brother" which has been getting a lot of internet attention -- over 3000 views in only 3 days!!), I decided to add a new link to the sidebar of the blog for highlights from our OWN American Idol competitions from 2003 and 2005. Both shows featured some mind-blowing talent and performances!

To celebrate the debut of our new showcase feature, here is a newly added clip of Noshavyah's amazing audition of the Deniece Williams classic, "Silly" from 2003. BRILLIANT!

Heyy Mr.B!

I hope you remember your chorus from 03!
Its Eric Cuevas, and my twin brother Lucas.
I can't believe Im talking to you again. I can see that the chorus is doing better than ever, and I miss S.I. I cant believe you got Tori Amos to hear you guys sing. I always remember you talking about wanting her to listen to you guys sing.
I now in in PA and Im in a band with my brother (Im lead Guitar, He plays Drums). To be honest, after seeing you play the guitar in my last year at P.S.22, I decided to take up guitar as well, and now its been playing for around 5-6 years.

Anyway, thanks for being the best music teacher ever, and I will always remember everything.
