About Clark Beckham
Why do you think you should be the next American Idol?
Because I believe America is hungry for the groove. Bruno Mars’ Super Bowl halftime show was one of the most popular and well-liked halftime shows in years. It consisted of straight Motown and R&B and people LOVED it. Pharrell Williams’ soulful, groovy single “Happy” has become only the fourth track in the last 20 years to go triple platinum. I believe it’s where music is going and I believe I can help take us there.
Through obtaining a college degree graduating with honors and growing up intensely involved in football and other sports, I have learned what hard work and pushing past my limit looks like and I have applied that work ethic joyfully to music. I have worked and will continue to work very hard to get better instrumentally, vocally, physically and mentally in a relentless, passionate, thrilling pursuit of being the best musician I can be. I am a student of music and musicians. I know that I have what it takes to be a major player in this business. I know with all of my heart that this is what I was meant to do. It’s never been a decision to make. There’s never been a choice. I am a lover of music but music is more than a want, it’s a must.
