Local Teen to Audition for National Singing Competition

One of the highest rated television series for nearly a decade is returning in 2018, and the auditions for American Idol are kicking off this August.

Portland is scheduled to be one of the first locations for auditions. For one Bend teenager, the return of Idol means a chance at his dream, just a quick drive over the mountains.

We introduce you to Austin Brown, a talented singer who’s a regular at open mic nights around Central Oregon, and someone you could see on a much bigger stage in the near future.
