CJ Harris recently auditioned for American Idol season 13. CJ has been singing since he could pick up a guitar. CJ states his “favorite thing to do is get up on stage and play for a crowd, big or small.” CJ wants nothing more but to be able to “connect to people by conveying my ideas through music and my voice.” CJ is from Jasper, Alabama. He is 2010 graduate of Walker High School. CJ was a member of Encore. Encore is group of talented young men and women that sing and dance for the community of Jasper City. CJ was selected to sing several solos in Encore. CJ has continued to pursue singing after he graduated high school by making popular videos on Youtube. Finally, CJ got the chance to audition for American Idol in Tuscaloosa while Idol was on tour. He was one of the 3 selected to advance in the Idol auditions. CJ is thankful that “God has given me a true, intangible talent, and I want to take my talents to the highest level possible.” Walker High School hopes to CJ into the finals of American Idol, and we are proud to call him a Walker High School Alumni.
