Reis Kloeckener goes from being bullied to gentle star on 'American Idol'

Apple-cheeked Reis Kloeckener, who says he got bullied in high school and thought about dropping out until choir pulled him through, is singing "Lean on Me" next on "American Idol."

Wow. He's got a pure tone and a really nice touch with the notes. "That was so beautiful you made me cry," says Steven Tyler. Yeah, he was really excellent and the judges loved him.

The St. Louis native comes across as a really decent, gentle guy. Add in his story and his cute looks, the kid's going to go far with the teenyboppers.
