Phenix City native, American Idol contestant holds meet and greet

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A local 'American Idol' contestant held a "meet and greet" Friday night at Mix Ultra Lounge in Columbus. 

Garrett Miles, a native of Phenix City, auditioned for 'American Idol' last month in Nashville and wowed the judges with his cover of "Proud Mary" and even sang a duet with judge Jennifer Lopez.

Garrett made it through to Hollywood, but sadly his journey on the show eventually ended. 

"The whole experience was just amazing," said Garrett, who is legally blind. "Being able to work with judges, performing in front of them... Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick and Keith Urban was thrilling and amazing; I will never forget it."

Garrett's parents accompanied him for the meet-and-greet. He hopes to get into a studio soon and record an album of original songs, saying God will lead the way.
