Engaged Chris Medina is about to tell his really sad story on "American Idol." His bride-to-be Julie got in an accident, sustained a brain injury and was in a coma for over a month. Wow, now he, and her mom, takes care of her.

He's singing "Break Even" and has a mellow, easy voice. Not great, but nice, kind of makes you smile listening, and he's very sincere. Gets better as he goes on, a kind of joy emanates from him.
