VIDEO: Alex Preston sings ‘Fairytales’ on American Idol 2014

Alex Preston sang “Fairytales” (an original composition) on American Idol XIII 2014 Season 13 Top 8.


Ever since he was little he wanted to be a musician. He begged his parent for a violin when he was a boy.

He wanted to sing an original in his audition so the judges can see who he really is. He wrote the song years ago in his basement.
