Chris Medina backstage at American Idol auditionAn American Idol hero has emerged. Not only can the young man sing, but Chris Medina’s personal life is lived with a loving heart, caring for a fiancee who was crippled and left with brain damage after a terrible car accident just two months before their wedding.

“I was about to make vows, just two months before the accident, to love her in sickness and in health,” he told the judges who asked about his family life. “What kind of guy would I be if I walked away when she needed me most.”

Originally from Chicago, Medina and the girl’s mom are full-time caregivers, helping her adjust to life in a wheelchair.
