A worship leader received the golden ticket to Hollywood from the American Idol judges with his astounding performance.
Warren Peay is a worship leader from Bamberg, South Carolina and he has always been compared to singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton more times than he can count because of his physique and his voice. He wanted to step into American Idol to make a name on his own with his God-given talent.
The 23-year-old appliance repair technician sang “To The Table” by Zach Williams during the talent show’s audition. It is a Gospel song released seven years ago about surrendering our lives to our Savior Jesus Christ.
“Bring it all to the tableThere’s nothing He ain’t seen before For all your sin, all your sorrow, and your sadness There’s a Saviour and He calls Bring it all to the table”
Golden Ticket to Hollywood
With his powerful voice, he stunned judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie. They all gave him a standing ovation after his performance.
“We heard all we need to hear. Warren, I want to make this very brief, that is heading down the top 10 roars that I have ever heard in my whole life. I’m telling you that he is strong and he is top 10. Good Lord,” Lionel commented.
Warren took to his Instagram account to celebrate this victory and give God the glory.
“What an incredible experience! Tonight I performed for the Idol judges and got the golden ticket to Hollywood! Praise God for this amazing opportunity, and a huge shoutout and thank you to everyone who has supported me in starting this journey. Be Blessed,” he wrote in a post alongside his photo with the golden ticket.
All three judges gave him a resounding yes and he is bound to perform in Hollywood in the next phase of the contest.
