He's an Accountant

His name is Steve Beguhn . If you’re a fan of American idol then you must have seen him. No, he did not make it through to the Hollywood week, but there’s something special about this guy. I truly admire this person.

His American Idol 10 Milwaukee Audition


Believe it or not, I do have a personality, so let's have some fun, and whatever you do...don't write-off the accountant!! :) (Last accounting joke, I promise...)
The journey of which you're all aware began during Season 10 of American Idol, and I am a lot like many of you. I'm just a small town guy that went to college, got a few degrees, and started working full-time.

Also like you, I have a dream.

When one of my best friends passed away from leukemia unexpectedly in December 2006 at the age of 22, I learned that nothing in life is guaranteed and you may never get a tomorrow to pursue your dream. Inspired by her memory and zest for life, I auditioned in Omaha with two great friends for Season 7 of American Idol. "No" was the answer.

Two years passed, and I continued working as an auditor, during which time Kimberlie’s memory, as well as my dream, only grew stronger. I auditioned in Chicago for Season 9 of American Idol. "No" was again the answer.

Admittedly frustrated, I returned to my craft of auditing, but I was determined to give this another shot. One year later, I auditioned in Milwaukee for Season 10 of American Idol. This time, "Yes" was the answer.

I never could have anticipated the aftermath of that third audition, and I have been incredibly humbled by the kind words and support I've received from around the world. I would like to quickly thank my beautiful and amazing fiancé for her unwavering support, as she more than anyone understands the depth of my passion for music, performance, and bringing smiles to peoples' faces. That's what this is all about!

Wherever this road leads, I am inspired by and grateful for you, my fans - thank you all for encouraging me along the way, and thank you for helping me get one step closer to my dream! I am not done, so stay tuned! My advice to you is simple - don't wait for tomorrow - Live that Dream!
