British Columbia singer Cameron Whitcomb’s ‘American Idol’ journey – Kelowna Capital News
You’ll find Today in BC podcasts on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, iHeart, and Google Podcasts.
Host Peter McCully chats with singer Cameron Whitcomb, who recently reached the TV show’s top 20 American Idol. He talks about growing up in Nanaimo, working in Kamloops, and the experience of being on the show.
Cameron’s audition for the 20th season of american idol was in Texas.
“I just felt like I was watching musicians who had been doing this their whole lives get turned down, right away, so I thought I had no chance,” Whitcomb said. “I actually had this conversation with this guy from Alabama. He was like, ‘Man, I promise you, these judges are the same as us, man. They put their pants on the same way we do. It just seemed like he wasn’t scared of anything. He was like, ‘It doesn’t change what these judges think of me.’
Today in BC asked Cameron about his musical selections for the competition.
“I’m really open to hearing what other people are listening to,” he said. “I really like finding new music. That’s where a lot of it comes from. My grandma sent me songs, I think my mom picked the song I was singing in Hawaii, bad moon rising by CRC.
Whitcomb shares the story of his famous backflips and his brother’s “Idol” tattoo.
We’ll also hear Cameron’s performance of If it hadn’t been for love by the Steel Drivers during a competition in Hawaii.
