Camper Spotlight - Andrew M.

"I was born on the Keystone stage," says ten year old Andrew M., one of six finalists in this week's Keystone Idol contest. His performances have earned him the first ever "Camper Spotlight" recognition on the Keystone blog, and I was lucky enough to have a few minutes with this shining star.

Andrew, or "Moose" as his friends and fans know him, started singing at the young age of three, imitating Cher's dance moves from the live DVD his parents played for him. While reinacting tours was his start, Andrew says his true love for singing came when he first hit the Keystone stage three years ago while in the Lava group. "I did a really sour job, but I still made it to the semi-finals," Andrew explained, "I sang Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day." Luckily, this early exposure to Keystone fame led Andrew to start singing lessons during the school year, which he still continues to this day. "Keystone Idol has been the inspiration for my singing career," Andrew states, "It's a great way for kids to show off their singing abilities."

Andrew's fame spills over into all aspects of his life, as this performer has been recognized outside of camp "at least thirty times" by fellow campers. He is a self-procliamed "hugger" and can often times be seen encouraging his fellow campers, even his fiercest competitors. Andrew has taken his skills on the road and is now working with a Turkish soap opera doing voice overs for American children. "The Moose" definitely has found his passion for entertaining an audience.

The competitive side of Andrew mentions CILT Diva as his biggest competitor, but is quick to say, "I've made a ton of great friends throughout the competition, and that's the most important thing. I have a one-in-six chance of winning." This modest talent goes out of his way to thank his friends and fans with every singing appearance. Andrew personifies the Camp Keystone spirit, and our stage is very lucky to have him.
