American Idol 6 Contestant Sean Michel – Exclusive Interview With Reality TV Magazine

February 03, 2007 12:49 PM by Joe Reality

Sean_michel_interviewDuring the American Idol audition episodes, there are usually a couple
singers that stand out as unique and original.  One of the singers that
stood out during the American Idol 6 auditions was Sean Michel.  Sean
Michel showed up for the auditions with a look resembling Fidel Castro,
but when he sang “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” in front of the American
Idol judges he proved there was incredible talent behind his unusual
look.  Some more info about Sean Michel can be found on his MySpace page.   Reality TV Magazine also recently contacted Sean Michel to find out
more, so keep reading for our exclusive interview.

Reality TV Magazine:  What made you decide to audition for American Idol?
Sean Michel:  I didn’t even decide to go until about 3AM the morning before the audition, as I had only just heard about it.  Initially, the reason I went was to hang out with some friends I hadn’t seen in a while who were also trying out (Rob and Tami Griffith) and also because it would be a funny story to tell.   Also, it didn’t hurt that I had some Memphis BBQ to look forward to.

Reality TV Magazine:  When did you start singing?
Sean Michel:  I have been singing my whole life.  My mom used to sing in the church choir, and she was really my inspiration to start singing.

Reality TV Magazine:  What is your favorite genre of music?
Sean Michel:  I listen to a lot of black gospel.  I also listen to a lot of indie rock bands.   I don’t really stick to just one genre I guess…

Reality TV Magazine:  According to your MySpace page, you are in a band.  What is the status of us your band as you take part in American Idol?
Sean Michel:  The rest of the guys in the band support this whole American Idol thing.  They’ve helped me with my interviews and have been there to pray for me and support me.  I’m not a solo act, and they know how much they mean to me.

Reality TV Magazine:  The songs on your MySpace page are very spirutual in nature.  Is there a message you are trying to deliver with your songs?  Can you tell us more about the message?
Sean Michel:  The message I want to deliver is that all of us are in desperate need of something more out of life.   And while we struggle after it in vain, God has appeared to us as a man to bring us to that very life we were always meant to live.  I want to let people know there is another level to living that is only found when we lose ourselves to Jesus Christ.

Reality TV Magazine:  At the Memphis auditions, you looked and dressed like Fidel Castro.  Can you explain your look?
Sean Michel:  This is just how I look.  I’m not trying to look like anyone else.  I just happen to like the look of a long beard and long hair.  As for the hat, it was a gift from one of my real good friends a few years back, and its fits my head perfectly so I wear it a lot.  The military looking shirt was just something I found at a thrift store once.  I don’t own a lot of shirts…it just happened to be the one I picked out at 3AM before we left.

Reality TV Magazine:  Is there anything else that you would like to tell our readers?
Sean Michel:  Oh, I’m sure I could go on an on.  But I guess what I really want to say is that I’m an artist.  That means a lot of things to me.  First, I find a connection with my Creator as I am involved in the creative process of my art.  And so my art, my songs, are meant to dig down deep in the soul of those who listen, so that it reflects that connection between me and God.  It also means that there is a lot more that goes into a song than just hitting some notes.   I want to craft every moment of singing a particular song so that I put my heart out there, not just my voice.  And finally, I hope that anyone who sees or hears me sing will have no doubt that I have shared in the redemption of sins offered by Jesus Christ, because there is nothing else that I know to sing about that moves me so much as this.

    I liked him until he started talking about that Jesus Christ nonsense. Someone needs to tell him that there is no God- all that is hogwash and the sooner he knows it, the better off he will be. How anyone can believe such ridiculous nonsense, I will never know.

    Do you think he made the top 24 on American Idol?

    All I can say to ugh is that I will pray for you. If you’ve never seen a hurricane, does that mean they don’t exist? Tell that to anyone who lives on the gulf coast.

    It’s never too late ugh. Jesus is waiting for you to come to Him and believe. Don’t wait too long.

    I am soooo proud of this young man. Stick to your faith in Jesus and you will go far. You stay strong in him and tell it like it is. You are right in everything you say. We will be voting.
