Have you heard? American Idol alums DeAndre Brackensick and Jessica Sanchez are dating! The two first made their relationship public in July, with DeAndre tweeting, “Me and jessica are officially dating:).” Read on to learn about DeAndre and Jessica’s post-summer plans.
Aww, DeAndre Brackensick and Jessica Sanchez definitely win the prize for cutest American Idol couple. The talented singers get to spend a lot of time looking adorable together as they are both performing for the American Idol Live! Summer Tour. And according to DeAndre, they are enjoying the tour experience. When asked about the summer tour, DeAndre told Blogcritics, “I wish I could do this the rest of my life with these people.”
Unfortunately, DeAndre won’t be on tour with his fellow American Idol contestants for the rest of his life. Eventually, he will have to pursue other opportunities. Right now, he’s open to whatever comes his way, be it attending community college or singing professionally. And, if DeAndre has any say, his ultimate career path just might include singing backup for Jessica Sanchez. “I really want to push my music, whether it be background singing or anything. Like, background tracks or if my girlfriend needs a background singer when she goes on tour. Anything.”
While fans would certainly love to see the couple on stage together during Jessica’s tour, we think it’s silly for DeAndre to limit himself to backup vocals. He’s a star in his own right! Hopefully, he will eventually extend his plans to include an album of his own.
Would you like to see DeAndre as a part of Jessica’s debut tour? Or should he be focusing on establishing a solo career? Feel free to share your thoughts below!
