Catch up with Louis Knight!
We recently chatted with the newly 20-year-old “American Idol” finalist on our Instagram live series Friends From Afar! During the interview, Louis got real about what it was like competing from home during COVID-19, why he decided to make the risky decision to audition with an original song, and his future plans to release music!
The “Twisted Conversations” artist also shared his biggest takeaway from his experience on the show, a piece of advice music industry megastar Katy Perry gave him:
“What stuck with me most out of the comments from the judges would definitely have to be Katy [Perry] when she said to me in Hawaii to just get back to singing from my heart and to always sing from my heart … that’s just why I love to sit down at the piano, singing. When it all just comes out and it’s all just an emotional release, that’s when I feel the best,” he explained.
