Noah Thompson competes tonight
Noah Thompson, 19, is a construction worker from Kentucky and was pushed to audition for American Idol by a co-worker.
His affinity for music started at a young age when his dad bought him his first guitar and gave him lessons.
Thompson told Hollywood Life that it was his dad who wanted him to “be in music,” but as his dad taught him to play his first chords, his love for music grew.
It was his dad’s dream as well that Thompson would make it in the music industry, and Thompson said, “Kind of the whole point of me being here, for my dad. I wanted to do it almost for the both of us.
On April 25, Thompson wowed the judges with a rendition of Ben E. King’s song, Stand With Me.
