What’s so amazing about you is that you embody what I call true artistry. I mean you can take a song, make it your style, bring us in, take us all the way in the journey. You manage to take us on a journey everytime you perform. I’m so proud of you and all I’m gonna say to the listening audience, vote. For God’s sake vote.
I just love you so much. I think everything you do is really heartfelt. And I can feel the emotion always coming out of you and whatever happens, I will remember you forever and you’ll never be forgotten. And you know, I think that this has been an incredible journey for you and I think it’s just the beginning. So just trust the universe.
Well I think what’s so tricky about you Alejandro is this show is forcing you outside your comfort zone. Even we heard some lower notes for the first time out of you.
But as crazy as this show may be for you, it’s still you’re learning in this thing and watching your artistry grow from the kid that walked in on audition to what you’re doing now and heck I’m watching your Instagram every night seeing what you’re putting on there.
Just great job in growing with us man, and we love you buddy, we love you.
