Attention all 4 of my blog readers: make sure you tune in to AI tonight (Wed. 2/13), or at least Tivo it. This kid that's one of my soloists here at Lake Pointe is making his first real appearance. His name is Jason Castro. Very cool guy, and a killer talent. He's had virtually zero air time so far (I think they've been saving him), but tonight he'll start showing up, because they're announcing the final 24. Not that I'm revealing anything... just watch it.
And next Tuesday, Feb. 19, when they start the live stuff, make sure you vote for him. He's a great Christian kid, and could have a strong influence. He's also just the ultimate cool - accidentally - which makes it even better. He comes from a very stable Christian family - grew up here at LP. My wife is his vocal coach, so we're pretty proud already.
Check him out, and vote like crazy! I've posted some pics here that we shot at a coaching/jam session in my office before he left for CA the second time (last week). The girl in the bottom pic is my daughter Emmy.
So while I was in Vegas this weekend… This happened…
