Chris Medina Music Video: "What Are Words"

by at . Comments

Amidst a sea of J. Lo's tears, Chris Medina was eliminated from American Idol this week.

But that isn't stopping the aspiring singer from pursuing his dreams. The former contestant, whose fiancee suffered a brain injury in a 2009 car accident, will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this evening and perform the single "What Are Words."

“It’s a song about making promises and fulfilling them, about telling someone you love that you’ll be there and having them be able to count on you because you said it," Chris says. "Because the words that you say really mean something. It’s a powerful song.”

Medina has already released a video for it. Watch and react to it now:

I love this song. Chris your story is so beautiful of what is means to truly love and stand by someone. You are a selfless man. Thank you for being such a role model for us all. Your song brings tears to my eyes each time I hear it. The first time I heard it I cried my eyes out. You have a beautiful voice and I pray that you go so far!

I don't think AI made a mistake to let him go. I think that Chris is on the path he is suppose to be on.

Absolutely beautiful.....AI....HUGE mistake letting him go. He doesn't need you now anyway, he will make it on his own because he has a beautiful voice and he is a amazing person. Wonderful job Chris, never quit and you will go far! Love this song!

I can't watch this video without crying. It was a perfectly written song by Darkchild (Rodney Jerkins) for Chris ... I think even Chris was overcome while singing it ... it looked like it was great therapy for him, and on the fb page For Juliana, Juli's mom said how this one single moment has set Juli ahead more than any therapy she's had, any depression pill she's taken. I have been moved forever by this love story and I will always support Chris! Love love love this song.
