Hunter’s friends post supportive messages

Hunter’s fellow American Idol contestants posted supportive messages, the most hilarious from Graham DeFranco, who is currently dating Hunter’s sister.

“I bought 500 tickets so it’s just going to be me in the audience and it will be a private show for me and I will be very supportive,” wrote Graham. “Much love from Columbus Ohio!” OK then!

The concert announcement was Hunter’s first Instagram post in four weeks. On June 8 the singer-songwriter wrote a heartfelt message alongside a video performance: “An authentic version of the first song I ever released,” he wrote. “The last few weeks I’ve been creating and writing songs that I believe in more than ever, looking forward to share them with you.”

Hunter’s most memorable moment on American Idol came when  he broke down on live television after messing up the lyrics of “Falling Slowly.” During an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show after he was eliminated from American Idol, he  observed, “In that moment, it was intense for me, but after coming off the show, the support has been amazing. ” 

Making the Top 7 also meant getting the opportunity to record and release an original winners song that he wrote with Mark Irwin Abramson and co-produced with heavy-hitter Ian Fitchuk  Check out the romantic “20,000 Kisses” HERE.
