American Idol 2013 hopeful contestant David Velez is only 18 years old, but age really has nothing to do with the amount of talent this young contender has.
Back home in Chicago, Devin Velez was working at his local Applebee's, but from what we've seen of him so far, this guy should clearly be making a career of using his musical gifts. Whenever he's not working, Devin spends his time singing for anyone who will listen.
Devin reportedly received his "Dream Ticket" at the American Idol Experience at the Disney Hollywood Studios. He went on to audition for American Idol 2013 this past summer. Not only does Devin have a great voice, but he's also apparently a songwriter as well, his Twitter page. Double threat!
This year’s American Idol judges took note of Devin's soaring vocals and cute look during Hollywood Week, sending him through to compete against the rest of the Top 40 in Las Vegas Vegas Week.
