Local Resident Appears on American Idol, Advances to Next Round

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Several years ago we introduced you to a singing valet at Christus Spohn Shoreline. That was Justin Fira back in 2011. Now, the 25-year -old is on American Idol. In fact, on the current season he has advanced to Hollywood Week. That's just a couple of rounds away from a spot on the live shows. We spoke to Fira here in Corpus Christi about the whirlwind his life has been the last couple of weeks.

"It's been a blessing," said Fira. "It's been overwhelming to take it all in and just see what's to come and see what the future holds for me."

We wish Fira the best of luck as he continues his musical journey.
