'American Idol' 2015 - Clark Beckham, Rayvon Owen & Nick Fradiani
Tonight the top 5 finalists perform on American Idol with three guys left in the competition - Nick Fradiani, Clark Beckham, and Rayvon Owen. Clark Beckham has been safe every week and is a fan favorite. Fradiani has also managed to stay safe each week, but Rayvon Owen has had to fight episode after episode for his spot in the competition. So, who are these three guys? Fradiani is the son of Nick Fradiani Sr., a musician who has performed in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and many other areas. Now, he's taken a backseat, rooting for his son and living vicariously through his offspring as his son's biggest supporter. As for Beckham, he's a devout Christian, who is deeply rooted in his faith, but doesn't want to only perform Christian music. Beckham told Christian Post: I know through a lot of confusing years and prayer trying to figure things out, a lot of people said 'you're a Christian and you do music that means you sing Christian contemporary music.' You lead worship. But I don't think God wants us to be isolated. I don't think He wants such a distinct wall between church and secular ... I want to write songs and sing songs about this world, about people, about this life that God has created through redeemed eyes. That's what I want to do. I think He created music, and I think He likes good music. I don't think we should be separated, I think we should go out into all of the world even musically. And then of course, there's Rayvon Owen. Owen told Richmond Times-Dispatch that being at the bottom so many times has helped him artistically and has really connected him to his fans. But, his biggest fan is his mother Patrice Fitzgerald, who has supported him "every step of the way."
