Last week I saw a sign at our local Chicken Play (Chick-fil-a) that they are hosting a Chick-fil-idol. For the past three weeks they've hosted open mic night. So, last Friday night we were watching the DeWall kiddos and I called up there just to get the info. I told Nathan about it since the grand prize is free Chick-fil-a for a year. I didn't expect he would be up for it, but he said to load up the kids and let's go! So, we took all four kids and went just to "scope it out" (he didn't want to sign up unless he felt comfortable). Of course as soon as we walk in, I go up to the panel and sign him up (so much for checking it out). I couldn't help it! He is soooo talented and I love hearing him sing. Even if it is in front of people eating fast food.
Nathan dedicated his song to Alex...so precious! He sang "I'll be" by Edwin McCain. That was the song we danced to at our wedding and is "our song". Awww. He did so great! The best part was when Alex went running into his arms. Nathan picked her up and she hugged him through the entire song. When he sang "I'll be, the greatest fan of your life" to her, the whole crowd melted. I know Alex put him over the top. How could you not love that?
Soooo, the top 4 contestants from each night (there were 3 nights) are competing in the finals in two weeks. Darby was chosen!!! So, he made the top 12 :) hehe!
GO DARBY GO!!! Here is the only picture I got on my phone...it's terrible, but I was too busy watching. I'll be sure and bring my camera in two weeks. Nathan, I'll be...the greatest, fan of your life. (tear, sniffle). hehe
