Soul singer, Neco Starr, was unable to advance past the Top 42 when he competed on American Idol in Season 11, but that has not stopped the singer from pursuing a career in music, wholeheartedly. You can follow him on Twitter, watch his performances on YouTube and listen to his songs on Soundcloud. Also, check out his Tumblr.

He get the bums rush during the audition rounds on Idol, but at least his audition, a performance of Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” aired.  Neco was cut just before the Top 24.
