Alejandro has struggled through many battles in life, After many rounds of competition, Alejandro was up against Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg for the title of American Idol on Sunday, May 19. But there is no question that Alejandro had a big shot at being the winner this year.

He grew up in Pomona, California, and was homeschooled. Alejandro is a 24-year-old artist and dishwasher and he didn’t pick music up until “later on in his life” he taught himself how to sing. Belting out tunes in the street and playing his guitar eventually helped Alejandro get over his fear of stage fright.
