A Christian Castro

Ok. I know it’s pretty dorky of me to continually blog on American Idol…but I just gotta share this tidbit. This season, I’ve been pretty into what’s been happening week in and week out. And I’ve made it pretty clear to those I know who my favorite is: Jason Castro. Now, I admit, he has a slim chance of winning, due to his narrow fan niche, but I think he’s gonna be a success way after Idol (I’m starting to sound like a crazed fan, but it’s all good).

The purpose of this post? Well, you can imagine that after reading Joshua Harris’ recent blogs on American Idol, I was elated to read this little portion on his latest post about the Shout to the Lord performance on last week’s Idol Give Back special:

Jason Castro’s Church
A girl named Leslie attends the church that Jason is from. She writes,

Jason Castro and his family attend my church in Rockwall, Texas. He is a Christian and has asked for prayer because one of the other contestants is either an atheist or agnostic. I was told that Jason Castro encouraged a few of the others to sing “Shout to the Lord” after they at first balked at the lyrics. Just FYI: Jason’s mother gave him the idea to get dreadlocks, and he now uses his look as a way to be able to witness to teens that normally wouldn’t listen. Way to go, Jason!

Now all the more, I want him to win it! If you haven’t had a chance… go check out Jason’s rendition of Hallelujah. As a result of that performance, iTunes saw the largest increase ever in sales of one song as a result of an Idol contestant.

Be sure to check out tomorrow’s Idol…rumor has it that it’s Mariah Carey’s week.

Now I will shamefully go hide in a corner now that I’ve just scared half of you with how much I’m into Idol.

    good story
    except for the fact that his mom told him to get dreadlocks.. so that young people will think he’s cool. that’s actually pretty lame.
    that’s right.. i said it!

    by the way… it IS crazy business (the lake house), but… i guess only sappy hippies like me are crazy about the crazy love business. yeaaa… πŸ™‚ um, not everyone’s a fan. i honestly think it’s just me… and maybe some keanu fans (or sandra bullock fans). =.=
