Caleb Johnson

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Caleb Johnson:

Cornerstone 2007 768

so is this:

Picture 218

and this:


oh yeah, and this:

Picture 251

Now, I think that we can all safely assume that Caleb loves pointing at the camera, but here are some pictures of the Caleb you don’t know:

Caleb helping our youth group feed around 800 people spaghetti for free at a music festival.


Caleb coming the closest he ever has to actually breaking a sweat from manual labor while helping to rebuild homes in Gulfport, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina.


Caleb listening to the music that would eventually inspire him to take up singing.


…and of course, Caleb looking cool with several of us walking down a street on a youth group trip.


I’m sharing all of this for one reason.  I want everyone that I know to share this with everyone that you know on the internet via Facebook or Twitter or whatever so that they will watch Caleb on American Idol and vote for him.

Caleb is remarkably ordinary and comes from a stable home.  He’s not addicted, abused, or neurotic.  He loves rock and roll and horror movies.  He’s got a lot of normal friends, is well-adjusted, and loves everybody.  In fact it is because he is so normal that I’m a bit concerned with his chances on American Idol.

Am I worried about his talent level?  No.  Caleb can easily out-sing and out-perform every other contestant in the top ten.  What I’m worried about is that Caleb is not exactly teeny-bopper material, nor will any special-interest group or sub-culture vote for him just to promote one of their own.  Caleb needs your help!

If you have ever wanted to rip your radio from the dash of your car because you hated soulless music, vote for Caleb.  If you like to support the average Joe, vote for Caleb.  If you would rather hear someone singing like Creedence Clearwater Revival than some bullcrap about what the fox says, then vote for Caleb.  If you have ever been a fat kid with a great personality and some talent who just needed a break, then you are obligated to vote for Caleb.  If you have ever wanted to support an amazing kid who loves everyone and has an incredible voice, you need to get off of your butt and vote for Caleb!

If he wins, I promise to post embarrassing pics and stories from his youth group years.  You have my word.
