Chris Medina: An American Idol Sob Story

by at . Comments

With American Idol kicking off a new season this week, we've already met Jackie Wilson, a rumored top 40 contestant.

Now, we've been introduced to Chris Medina, another aspiring singer with one of the saddest stories in show history.

The judges met this 27-year old during auditions in Milwaukee. He was accompanied there by his fiancee, Juliana Ramos. As viewers will discover, Medina proposed to Ramos two years ago, only for her to be involved in a major car accident in October 2009. The tragedy left her with brain damage, nearly paralyzed.

This video was shot approximately one year into Juliana's recovery.

Sources tell TMZ that Steven Tyler was especially moved by this story. Who could not be? The same insiders say Medina advances to at least the final 40 on season 10. A website has been set up to help pay for her medical bills.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
