About Mark Andrew
Why do you think you should be the next American Idol?
Well, first off I understand that this is a business and I am here to work! I want to make this my career and make amazing music! I believe I have the ability to bring back what I call “The Good Stuff.” Haha, and that would be the music that everyone knows and loves. The oldies if you will. I would bring my old school and roots style music to the pop charts with a modern touch to it of course. I also feel I have the ability to cross genres and make my music accessible to many different listeners. I can do Country, Soul, Pop, Rock …whatever, as long as the material is good I can work with it. I don’t think you see too many artists out there today that have that ability. I would also like to think that I could be a great face to franchise and be one of the reasons American Idol can say we make superstars! I can write, I can sing, I can play guitar and I can make people have a great time with live performances. I love being involved in every process of this industry … even the mundane aspects. I am willing to work hard and make some money for myself, my family and the institutions that give me the means to have a career doing what I love. I am willing to work with talented and knowledgeable people to have a successful career. I am not a diva. I have a respect for both aspects of this … the art and the business.
