Wade Cota Reveals Heartbreaking Childhood Before AMAZING Audition – American Idol 2019

Wade Cota American Idol 

American Idol 2019 season 17  espisode 3 starts tonight with 12 contesttants. Who is going to go Hollywood Week, you will have your answer tonight

Wade Cota performs Trouble by Ray LaMontagne with guitar during the  American Idol 2019 Top 14 performance in front of a live audience and judges Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry.

Wade Cota, 27 year old, from Phoenix, AZ is a full time musician and can recite the entire balcony scene from the Shakespeare play Romeo & Juliet. Wade is a big guy with big dreams, at 6 foot 7, he knows he stands out in a crowd.

Wade shares that his mom has diabetes. His goal is to take care of her financially. The lovely dude shares that the song came to him at a low point. “I feel so close to this song now,” says Wade. Interesting to hear Wade sing a popular pop song. He’s not quite suited to it. Again, the heavy, heavy gravel in his voice is off putting. It’s like he needs to hock one up. However, Wade does give the performance everything he’s got.

He’s actually quite the showman here. Lionel says, “You have a voice to be reckoned with.” He notes the “choreography.” He’s happy that Wade is comfortable with himself. “That voice is identifiable.” Katie think’s he’s turning into a bonafide rock star. “You found who you were…you’ve tapped into some otherworldly energy.”  He got the jacket from…a guy outside the studio. OK then. “Way to blossom right in front of our eyes,” says Luke. “Good job.” 

He will ber performing in front of the Judges Luke Bryant, Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry during  Wade Cota audition

Wade Cota performs an original tune called "Stay" at Hollywood Week in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

Wade Cota Audition? What song he will be singing tonight?

Blame it On Me by George Ezra – He grew up in a poor single family. His biological father was “the devil.” He beat both him and his mother. He has a facial scar and a cracked skull. Her final straw was seeing him kick Wade in the ribs. It took two years to get away. One of his brothers decided to stay with his dad. “I wouldn’t change anything,”

Wade says to the panel. “Nobody without a broken heart can write a song.” I was not expecting his deep, raspy voice. Wade has a unique, rootsy style. His well-worn style is appealing. “I was not expecting that other person to jump out of your body,” says Lionel. “My friend, you brought me a character.” Luke compares him to Johnny Cash. He hears his music in movie soundtracks. Currently, he’s making a living from music. – 3 yeses “You’ve got one of the most unique voices I’ve heard in my life,” says Katy. 

"It's crazy. You sit there and either you're watching them, or you can hear them through the door, and you're waiting, and all you can think about is 'What am I doing here?"

We didn't have much money, but we had lots of loves and hugs and big old plates of pasta," said Wade Cota.

Cota is a big guy with big dreams. At 6 foot 7, he knows he stands out in a crowd.

But this Sunday he's hoping to stand out among thousands of hopefuls looking to become the next American Idol. The 27-year-old Moon Valley High School grad has been singing for years and even makes a living with his voice.

"It's crazy. You sit there and either you're watching them, or you can hear them through the door, and you're waiting, and all you can think about is 'What am I doing here?" 

"I had a lot of support from my family. I had a lot of support from my friends. And it's just such a huge thing to have a level of acceptance from anybody is just outstanding," Wade said.

Hope you love his voice, story and vote for him in the next round
