Former American Idol star CJ Harris who made it to the top 6 in 2014, has reportedly died at age 31.
According to a family member, CJ Harris suffered an apparent heart attack on Sunday night in Jasper, Alabama. He was then rushed to a local hospital by ambulance but didn’t make it.
Fans of American Idol would remember the Jasper native auditioning for the judges back in 2014 in Salt Lake City. CJ Harris got the judges on their feet as he blew them away with his version of Allman Brothers Band’s “Soulshine.”
One of the judges, Keith Urban said; “You sing ’cause you have to sing, not ’cause you want to sing. And, I mean that in the deepest way. And, that’s why it’s so believable and real.”
Following his incredible audition, CJ rocked America with powerful versions of “Too Close,” “American Woman,” and “Free Fallin’.
