Column: ‘American Idol’ sensation was regular at open mic

Alejandro Aranda has been wowing them on “American Idol” since March 6. He says he’s a dishwasher from Pomona, a description that, combined with his humble manner and way with an acoustic ballad, have made him a sensation. I delve into his recent past as an open mic and street performer in Pomona and Claremont in Sunday’s column. Photo from March 30 Pomona appearance by Liliana Pardo.

    I never heard of him; never watch the show. I watched it tonight because of him. My heart was in my throat until he got chosen. Heart also broke for the two left standing. I hope good luck going forward for Alejandro.

    I saw his profile-feature last night. I have no idea where things go from that point. He projects ,”sweetness”.

    He’s still going……I can’t stand it! Its for the best that I don’t watch this show on a regular basis,

    He is in the top four! It is for the best that I won’t see this program again after the finale. I hate to see young people hurt and my heart breaks to see one child left standing, If Alejandro is left standing at the conclusion of this saga my heart has to break some more. I must say, they (including AleJandro) are all very talented.
