Singer / songwriter Jersey Shore clip for listening brings people to tears.
22 years old Cole Holman with Manasquan started playing guitar and singing only a few years ago.
American Idol released its tearful audition for the judges, where it was joined by his younger sister Katie, who has special needs.
“I think it’s the best takeaway,” Holman said. “It’s something she’ll never forget, and I’ll never forget either.”
Cole calls himself a late flowering. He says he felt a little unprepared for this audition and a little out of place.
None of this prevents him from going to Hollywood.
This is how he describes his style.
“I’m a singer / songwriter, and my mood changes sometimes,” Holman said. “Sometimes it’s a whole band thing. Sometimes it’s an acoustic thing. It’s mostly musicians inspired by singers and songwriters I’m equal to.”
Once at a bar in the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, Holman recently had the opportunity to perform there as one of his inspirations, Bruce Springsteen.
Catch Cole and other local hopefuls this Sunday at 8pm at the premiere of the 20th season of “American Idol.”
