Now why in the world would the Albany Herald post a story like this against Phillip? All kinds of people came to the Albany area just this last weekend to see Phillip and I have a feeling it brought in a good bit of money for Albany businesses.

Who cares about race and gender. America is voting for who they like to hear. Joshua, Jessica, and Phillip have amazing voices. Phillip has my vote, not because he is from my hometown, but because I like his sound. It is the type of music that I enjoy. I feel that Joshua sounds too gospel-y for American Idol. Jessica has a lot of potential for being only 16 years old. I feel that she needs to wait a year or two, so she can get her education and let her voice mature a little more, then come back.
