UAPB Student Daniel Farmer is Headed to Hollywood for American Idol "The Farewell" Season

BA429AA0-C4CD-4FDA-B2AC-76B7D9DF1EAD_zpszwgqbnod.jpgAmerican Idol concluded its two-night season XV premiere Thursday night with auditions. The auditions were shown between Little Rock and San Francisco as more contestants sang for the remaining Hollywood spots in the show's final season. Idol judges Keith Urban, Harry Connick, Jr., and Jennifer Lopez were in an appearance at the Statehouse Convention Center during the audiences in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Daniel Farmer, 24, is a student at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (a historically black college and university) located in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, traveled to Little Rock to audition for the last season of the show and to receive his ticket to Hollywood.... and that he did!

Daniel Farmer is a Memphis, TN native, singing D'Angelo's "How Does It Fee?" according to Billboard, his charisma immediately won Lopez over (which can be seen in the series premiere video below), and his improvised several runs in the performance earned him a place in Hollywood.

HBCU Campaign Fund organization is excited about Daniel's accomplishment and is rooting him on all the way to the top. HBCU Campaign Fund, president, and founder Demetrius Johnson Jr. releases a congratulations statement to Daniel Farmer:

"Congratulations to Mister Daniel Farmer on smooth singing J-Lo away to make it to the "Farewell Season" of American Idol. Mr. Farmer is an amazing singer with talent who is part of the international renowned Vesper Choir, YVP, and other singing groups at UAPB. I know Mr. Famer personally and he is a great person and have an outgoing personality, so there was no reason why he shouldn't have won the judges over to earned that one time in a lifetime opportunity. Now it's up to the student body of UAPB and our fellow HBCU peers to help us move Mr. Farmer to the top. To my understand, Mr. Farmer is the ONLY HBCU student in those who are headed to Hollywood so let's support Historically Black own. As I always say, "Let's GO Lions GO!."

Make sure to watch Daniel Farmer on the next American Idol on Fox this Wednesday at 8/7c.
