Baylor JPR&NM alumnus American Idol Contestant
Congratulations to Baylor JPR&NM alumnus Thomas Patrick Moran, who was a contestant on Season 20 of American Idol. Moran, a digital artist, graduated with a degree in journalism from Baylor University. He is from Denver, Colorado.
Moran’s magnetic personality grabbed the judges’ attention the moment he walked in for the audition. In a rare opportunity, they let him sing two songs: ‘Chain of Fools’ by Aretha Franklin. He then went for ‘River’ by Leon Bridges, which put the trio in a bit of confusion.
Lionel Richie and Katy Perry agreed to give him a chance in Hollywood, and handed him the coveted golden ticket. Lionel dubbed Thomas a natural-born entertainer adding that he wanted to give him a chance, as he thought he would be hilarious in Hollywood.
Moran performed well. However, he was eliminated with a group of contestants.
Congratulations Thomas Patrick Moran! We wish you continued success in your career endeavors.
