Nope, it's not a zip code, pin number or the access code to a lock box, it is the number that can be seen on the front of American Idol contestant, Chris Madina's shirt.  Chris is from Oakforest, IL a suburb about twenty-five miles southwest of Chicago. He was featured on Fox's 10th Season of American Idol last night, which I missed due to my little business trip to Peoria.

Why am I'm writing about this you may ask?  It's simple, Chris is a hero in my eyes and I think the world should know it.  He has been dating his fianace, Julianna for eight years and engaged for three.  Julianna was involved in a car accident in 2009 and suffered brain damage.  It could be real easy for a twenty six year old to move on but Chris is hanging in there demonstrating what love and commitment truly is.

I didn't really notice that, but wow. What a voice that guy has.  We'll be seeing him for a while. And what a heartbreaking story about his girlfriend.  I guy who has that much talent and a heart of gold?  I'm in his corner.
