Chris Medina Brings American Idol Viewers, Judges to Tears

by at . Comments

We heard the story of Chris Medina days before this American Idol hopeful appeared on the show last night.

But that didn't make his Milwaukee audition any less emotional, as Medina recounted the story of his fiancee, Juliana, who got into a horrific car accident in October 29 and remained in a coma for over a month before awakening with brain damage.

Soon after impressing the panel with his sheer vocal talent on "Break Even," Medina wheeled Juliana into the studio, where all three judges greeted her before announcing the news: her man was headed to Hollywood! Watch the heartwarming tale in its entirety now:

I am not looking for anything including money, publicity or marketing but have some real help for Medina's girlfriend that she couldn't otherwise get. I lecture medical education in the United States and Canada where doctors as well as other health professionals get education credits they need for licensing. We have something that can increase nerve conduction immediately without surgery and in double blind studies increased nerve conduction an average of 75% and regrew nerve fiber. Increased conduction like that is unheard of and would win you a trip to the moon if you did that electrically. This girl has real challenges ahead of her and I want to help as I would want the help for mine.

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.
