Just thought I would put in a plug for Scott Macintyre, the blind musician/singer competing on this season's American Idol competition. I am not a big fan of the show, but have been watching it since Scott audition in Phoenix.
Scott and his family attend my church, Scottsdale Bible Church, and we have had the pleasure of listening to them perform in our services for many years. The entire Macintyre family (Mom, brother-Todd, sister-Katelyn, and Scott) are very talented and often sing during church services or other special events.
Scott will be competing in the semi-final round this week (March 3, 2009). If you are interested in this program and like to vote, consider casting your vote for Scott.
