On American Idol’s foray into Pittsburgh last night, viewers met Eben Franckewitz, a 15-year old from Milford, Ohio. We were first introduced to him via home video, as the show drove home just how close Eben is to his parents.
He then only needed a few seconds in front of the judges to earn a Golden Ticket for his rendition of “Ain’t No Sunshine,” with all agreeing the kid was adorable and Randy Jackson telling him: “You definitely have a God-given gift that is pretty amazing and spot-on.”
Also serving notice in the Steel City? Hallie Day. The 24-yar old waitress means singing business.
