I unashamedly love watching American Idol. One of the contestants this year was Josiah Leming. He had an interesting life story. He is 18 years old living out of his car. To be honest I could care less about his personal life. What I like about him was his style, which was a refreshing change of pace for American Idol. Sadly he did not make the final 24. I believe it is because his second Hollywood audition was incredibly bad compared to his earlier auditions.
I did find that he writes his own songs and they appear on youtube. I have listed a few of them below. He also has his own myspace page.
