After being eliminated from American Idol on Friday, Staunton Idol Colton Berry has much to look forward to on the home front.
His fans are speaking out and continuing their support of the aspiring actor and singer. He even has a growing fan club. Robert E. Lee senior Maria Lane created a Facebook group dedicated to Berry's career.
Lane says it doesn't matter whether he's in the competition or not. He's still someone to look up to.
She says, "I think we keep going and continue to show support. Win the show or not, it doesn't matter because he's still what I think people will consider an American Idol. He's done so much stuff at such a young age. He's really brought a lot of theater and the arts to this area that wouldn't normally been able to come here."
The group already has more than 1,400 members, and Lane says it's growing by the day.
