Brian Rittenberry tugged at our heartstrings with the story of his wife’s battle with cancer. Thankfully she pulled through and was present at her husband’s American Idol 2013 audition, where he sang “Let It Be.”
 
But how far does the Jasper, Georgia native make it? Even a good heart doesn't always win out and Brian was eliminated in the first night of Hollywood Week.
 
Then again, anything can happen on Idol! Watch Brian’s audition again below.
