Meet Ashthon Jones, American Idol Semifinalist

by at . Comments

Remember the name Ashthon Jones. You may be hearing it often over the next couple months.

The Tennessee native joined others such as Paul McDonald and Haley Reinhart in being named a season 10 semifinalist last night. Such an honor completes an amazing journey for Jones, who started singing with her church choir.

She actually ran away at the age of 15, a year after the man who raised her since birth passed away. Ashthon has never met her biological father. A fan of painting and roller skating, Jones never gave up on her dream. Might it lead to an American Idol title? She's on her way...

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.
