I just recently discovered that a son of one of our neighbors was a contestant on “American Idol,” and did very well indeed! Will Makar, son of Shirlyn and John Makar, at 11924, appeared on the show in 2006, and finished 14th. Pretty amazing when you consider how many thousands and thousands of people audition for that show. (I’m sure most of you long-time residents are already aware of Will’s talent, but we newcomers were clueless…)
Will is currently attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he is majoring in vocal performance and song writing, and he is an active member of an a capella group called “Pitch Slapped.” See below; Will is the soloist.
