The style, the talent, the grit...the mullet! Caleb Kennedy has it all. After auditioning for American Idol with an original, future-hit song of his called “Nowhere,” Katy Perry tells Caleb: “You better finish that song ‘Nowhere,’ because it’s gonna take you somewhere.” Caleb admits to lacking self-confidence, but Luke reassures him that he’s “just perfect,” and has a “voice that tells a story far beyond a 16-year-old.” Watch here to see why Lionel Richie feels Caleb has “mastered a storyteller’s voice,” and why he has great expectations for Caleb’s future!

He sings from what he's seen or experienced in such a short time in life so far! Good job Mom for supporting his dreams and his heart, nothing like a Mama's love for their child or children!

      Thank you for your kind words. His dad has been there on this journey too. They would listen to county music in the car all the time. When Caleb was young he would get in the car and say, “ Josh Turner please.” And in would go the cd. Caleb was the DJ constantly changing one CD to another. I’m surprised they never wore out. Lol. He has raised a very well mannered, humble young man. The song is finished. Look for it on March 31 on Spotify, PAdesk; etc. We appreciate your support. - One Proud Stepmom
