Jayrah once won Making the Band, but there were issues. Now he is now working hard to become the next American Idol.
You gotta love Twitter. I met Jayrah one of the American Idol hopefuls, while tweeting my followers and Jayrah said hello. I asked for an interview and he set this up right away.
Jayrah preaches that you can do great things if you put your mind to it and set some goals.
Jayrah is very active in social media on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Sound Cloud and many other channels, to get out the word and build support for him on the show.
Randy Jackson says that Jayrah is “Mad Good”. He is also known as a very
upbeat and exuberant guy and Jayrah says he has been asked to tone it down, but Jayrah is passionate and sincerely excited and you can tell from this interview. Even after a full day in the studio Jayrah is excited and full of spunk.
Jayrah, thanks for keeping your word we will be watching you. – JW
