AMERICAN Idol returns to ABC tonight and one contestant brought everyone to tears with his audition.
Cam Amen sang Hallelujah after revealing to the judges that he was in foster care as a child and is now caring for his younger siblings.
In an exclusive clip released by People, the contestant said growing up “was a little rough going in and out of foster care. We were all taken away from our mother.”
Amen told host Ryan Seacrest that he’s been a caretaker for about five years.
At the end of his audition, the contestant was overcome with emotion as the judges gave him a standing ovation and Lionel Richie gave him a hug.
American Idol airs on ABC tonight at 8 p.m.
