  1. I was so happy to hear how well Chris has done, which goes to show that no matter where you place, you either fall hard and never get back up, or you fall hard, and you defy the ground you fell on. (By Naomi Durham). He never gave up! He was first place material on an otherwise rated B- show called American idol!
    Jennifer Hudson is cut out of the same cloth. You either take a loss and quit, or you show them what they don’t know!! Thank goodness Chris saw the bigger picture in his future, and so did Jennifer Hudson, and she is now playing in the big picture, “Aretha”! You show ‘em, Chris and Jennifer!!
