KJAS & Rayburn Broadcasting Company
A Jasper native has made it to Hollywood Week on American Idol, becoming the third person from this area to be featured on the very popular FOX Network program.
Savion Wright, who is a recent Jasper High School graduate, is now in competition with about 100 other contestants in American Idols 13th season.
Wright joins the ranks of Woodvilles Kree Harrison who, last year, was the runner-up on the show, and Jaspers Michael Sarver, who finished in the top ten a few years ago.
Wright is currently a student at Baylor University in Waco, where he is studying medical humanities. Wrights family has recently been in the news; he is the youngest brother of Alfred Wright, a 28-year-old Jasper man who recently died in Sabine County.
Savion Wright can be seen on American Idol on the FOX Network on Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. central time. Returning as judges for season 13 are Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, and first time judge Harry Connick, Jr.
