Drake McCain American Idol
Drake , 24 year old from Elberton, GA full time singer/songwriter. His first concert was Lee Greenwood, who called the young singer up on stage.
Drake McCain sings "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" and "Oh Happy Day" in his American Idol audition that turns into a duet with Katy Perry.
His Eye is on the Sparrow -He bags groceries at his small town’s Piggly Wiggly. He has 8 sisters and 2 brothers. “None of the dads are in the picture.” All 10 of his siblings have travelled to the audition with him. The judges can’t get over his giant, red wedge. Katy sings a bit with him. Next, they launch into a rendition of “Oh Happy Day” from Sister Act 2. Katy likes his tone, but he needs to choose the right songs. Luke advises him not to over do the runs. The solo bit I heard didn’t really impress me that much, actually – 3 yeses.
Drake McCain will sing "Knocks Me Off My Feet" by Stevie Wonder and the gospel hymn "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" before "Idol" judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry.
"I've been singing since I was 5," he says, "but I started singing in public at 8 when I had my first solo in chorus. I sang all the time growing up in church, and 'Shackles' by Mary Mary was the first song I sang for church. I knew I was meant for the stage."
