“3 o’ clock sharp, registrations sheets filled up quickly, as the singers packed the city market parking lot.About 30 other singers came from near and far to compete for a guaranteed audition on American Idol in Milwaukee next week. When they got on stage, they let the vocals fly.But in the end it was the man with the guitar who captured the audience’s heart.23 year old Clayton Heinrich made the hour and a half trip from Naperville. ‘It feels surreal I’m not going to lie’ says Heinrich. ‘It’s a confidence boost having this many people rally behind me and cheer its helpful I’ll think about it in Milwaukee’ says Heinrich.But when he heads to Milwaukee, next week he’ll be without his favorite instrument. ‘Its going to be different but I’m going guns a blazing’ says Heinrich.And he’s got the Rockford community behind him.” – Alex Shabad
