Matt’s a working guy’a welder’with a family, who has always had a dream to sing. Definitely NOT a plant. His wife encouraged him to try out–reminiscent of Chris Daughtry’s audition. In fact, it’s Daughtry playing in the background during his audition.
Dude got a decent voice, kinda gruff and soulful, but he’ll have to do much more to stand out from the pack.
Matt is featured singing “Some Kind of Wonderful” in the group rounds here
