(Faithwire) An “American Idol” contestant’s heartwarming relationship with his sister has touched fans and the show’s judges.
Cole Hallman, 22, showed up recently to try out for the show and was accompanied by his mom and his sister Katie, who has a chromosomal deletion that has impacted her developmental and behavioral skills.
“She has a chromosomal deletion. It’s just like a small part of her chromosome is not there,” Hallman said during his “American Idol” interview. “I’m grateful to have her here. She keeps me calm.”
The singer went on to note Katie is his “number one fan” as well as his main critic. The two have a close-knit relationship and frequently sing together, which means a lot to Hallman.
