How many times do you have to fail before you give up? Is it two? Or maybe four? Jeremy Rosado could have given up after being rejected that fourth time in front of the American Idol producers. He would have had a valid excuse to stop then, especially since the next audition was over 400 miles away. After all, he was trying to work his way through his sophomore year of college. He had enough other things to focus on. His friends and family were supportive of his dream, but even they were starting to tell him to give up. He agonized over the thoughts, “Should I just stop?”
But Jeremy’s focus wasn’t on the work he had to do for himself. His focus was on what God had planned for him. God has always been the biggest part of his life, and he had been sharing himself as the worship director at Life Changing International Ministry in Valrico, FL. His experiences there had helped him to be confident in what God’s plan was. He knew that he had been given a platform to help change the lives of others.
He couldn’t give up.
He took that long road trip. And in that fifth season among over 100,000 auditions across the country, Jeremy Rosado made it. His hard work, dedication, and faith paid off. He landed as a finalist after he was hand-selected by Jennifer Lopez as her wild card pick. Now, Jeremy is using his platform to help people know that God is in control and that He will do more than we could ever imagine if we can just trust in Him.
Jeremy’s debut album is set to release in Spring 2013. It will be upbeat and provide the positive message to help us stay strong in seeking God’s plan for us. The musical styles will keep us energized and help us see the world around us in a different way. Jeremy wears a verse on his bracelet that reminds him of the message that he hopes we can all come to know:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
A special note from Jeremy about his upcoming projects:
“I am very excited to announce the release of my new single “Don’t Be Afraid” featuring Pablo Villatoro of Group 1 Crew is scheduled to drop on iTunes March 26, 2013. The entire EP album will also be available soon. It has been a lot of hard work and I can’t wait for you, my fans, to hear it and let me know what you think. Also, we’ll be hosting my CD Release Party at Nativity Catholic Church in Brandon, FL on April 6, 2013.
