The new season of American Idol seems to be a weekly source for inspiring stories and God-filled moments. This one comes from 17-year-old Drake McCain, who auditioned for the show singing the Gospel classic “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.” The performance clearly impressed the judges, so much so that Katy Perry couldn’t help but sing along for an impromptu duet.
Katy Perry began her career singing gospel music when she was a teenager and released self-titled Christian album under her real name Katy Hudson.
Those church roots shine through in this clip from the show. And hopefully, depending on how McCain progresses, this won’t be the last time the pair rejoice in Jesus’ name.
