American Idol : Chris Medina

Chris Medina not only impressed the judges with his audition, he came with a heartbreaking story that testifies to the power of love.

Chris was engaged to his girlfriend Julie, hoping to be married within two years. In 2009, an accident left her with a traumatic brain injury, but he stayed by her side to care for her “in sickness and in health.” Watch as the judges gather around Julie to tell her that Chris is going to Hollywood.
