Life is good for Jorge Nunez.
Not only is the aspiring singer a member of American Idol‘s final 13, but he’s receiving support from a pair of hometown heroes.
This morning, Nunez was a guest on on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM L.A. radio show when the host shared a text message from Puerto Rican icons Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. It read:
“Hey bro, just finished watching the show. This guy is really special. Please tell Jorge that Jen and I could not be prouder. We were in tears witnessing, honestly. Pure talent.”
What was the Idol contestant’s reaction to such support?
“That [was] so awesome!” Jorge told E!. “I mean… if they’re famous here you really can’t imagine how famous they are in Puerto Rico. They’re like the biggest people ever. I love them. I’m so happy.”
How far do you think Jorge Nunez will advance on American Idol?
