American Idol returns for its much-anticipated ninth season in January 2010. Television’s No. 1 hit series empowers contestants and viewers to share their voices in deciding who will be America’s next singing superstar. This new season promises to deliver amazing, undiscovered talent with plenty of surprises along the way.
One surprise came as an early Christmas present for the band The Undeserving that hail from a small town in Northwest Ohio. Forming in 2004, The Undeserving (Clay Kirchenbauer – lead vocals/guitar/piano, Kyle Kirchenbauer – drums, J. Brennan Willis – lead guitar/ backing vocals, and Jimmie Getty – bass) have advanced far beyond their years since their beginnings. The band’s first recording project is almost complete with an anticipated early 2010 release.
Backing the video is the track “Something to Hope For”. Debuting on the finale of “So You Think You Can Dance” , the commercial is to be used for the next three weeks, promoting the premiere of American Idol’s upcoming ninth season.
Many in Northwest Ohio are very proud of the band and it looks like all the hard work is paying off. It is good to see really good people get a chance to do what they really love. I personally am very proud because the lead singer is my son-in-law. I wish you guys the best and hope that all your dreams come true.
