The pride of Oak Grove High School, DeAndre Brackensick returns to San Jose on the American Idol Live Tour.
San Jose native and American Idol finalist DeAndre Brackensick returns to San Jose on July 22 for the American Idol Live Tour at HP Pavilion.
Though loved by judge Jennifer Lopez, Brackensick was eliminated from the show on of the final rounds of voting. This, however, has not stopped Brackensick’s career as a budding R&B singer.
Brackensick, an Oak Grove High School graduate, spoke with us from the road on tour in Utah.
It’s been awhile since you’ve been home in San Jose. What do you miss most?
The people, my friends and everything.
Is there anywhere on tour you have visited that you haven’t experienced before?
I got to go to Michigan and some other places. Its cool seeing different presentations in how people act. When you’re used to one way of life but then you get to see different lifestyles, its really cool.
HP Pavilion is huge local venue in your hometown. Do you have a lot of anticipation for that show?
I’m stoked. I can’t wait to come back to the Bay to represent for my people.
Do you have anything special planned while you are in San Jose?
Spending time with my family. We don’t have much time in between San Jose and the Sacramento show. I’m trying to enjoy time with them as much as I can.
