Trey Louis Chases Positivity With His Music And Sings “Stone” by Whiskey Myers – American Idol 2023
The judges get first emotional, then enraged as mattress salesman Trey explains he’s here at Idol to shed a different light on his hometown of Santa Fe, Texas. “Trey from the Fe” suffered a school shooting in May 2018, during which he lost 8 of his friends and 2 of his teachers.

Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote for to become the next singing sensation are music industry forces and superstar judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest continues as host of the beloved series, for the historic 21st season.
He brought tears to my eyes singing and then his story happened. This boy has the talent, people interactions, and everything to be the star. This kid needs to be a star for sure!!!
@FELIPE ROUM He Lost six Friends at a school shoot out really He came to sing in honour of those who lost there lives . Katy Perry may have understood she might have experienced in school year she is only 21 why she cryed of her because of her 💖 has compassion so please have a second thought behind your negative feelings Maybe go sing to show you could Win

@Artfish Studio I doubt he’s winning. It’s probably gonna be Iam and Colin. Iam just has that nice story telling voice in him. This person I don’t really see the story telling voice in him. Sounds like he’s just screaming out of his lungs most of the song.
This guy is already a star in the way that he carries himself, his confidence, his charisma, and comfort level. He has that amazing, natural quivering vibrato that just gracefully tapers off beautifully…. and just disappears at the tail end of each phrase. This kind of soulful singing and polished vocal mechanics allows for all of the runs to be so clean; bundled with a top dollar voice texture, in the way that it breaks up and has just the right amount of rasp and earthy tone. Bravo
Definitely! I too was reminded of Chris Stapleton before Luke even said anything.
This guy is somethin else. Imagine being too close to a massacre as a kid, losing friends, surviving, and carries the trauma for the rest of his life. And then goes to American Idol, gets a ticket, and voices out his story and cause for the whole world to hear.
GOD BLESS THIS BOY. You don’t see much heart in kids this young. He has a huge heart and he’s out to change the world. I pray he goes far!
If you aren’t seeing heart in kids today, you’re not looking
@Will James Jr. im 28 and i was about to say alll of that my faughter is 6 she is going to need to be imensily stronger than me or even my parents shes gonna need to be greatest generation strong the kind of stuff that got people through the depression and dust bowl i pray every day for her to be guided and protected in this crazy ass world
Don’t see heart in the youth today? I’m in my 30s. I’m no longer a kid or young person but I’ll speak up for the youth…because many of them actually have MORE heart than the elders and adults do. It actually might be more difficult to be a young person today than it has been in 60 years!!
Generations before them have left them a broken, sinister economy, unaffordable college, the impossibility of buying a home or affording rent, the most embarrassing & shameless politicians,greed, climate devastation, racism, sexism, endless war & a mental health crisis.
The fact that we can’t even promise our children that they won’t be victims of gun violence at church, the grocery store OR AT SCHOOL is all you need to know about how difficult it is to be young today & how we have failed them. It takes immense heart, guts & unnatural optimism for young people (and even adults my age) to make it through everyday.
Your statement, as well as the feelings others share that young people today don’t have as much heart is inaccurate.
Kids don’t show their pain and dismay because this shit is way beyond their control. God bless this boy and the broken society he survives in every day.
You don’t see much heart in kids this young??? They have exactly the same heart as the rest of us humans. Maybe talk to some younger folks and find out.
Thanks Katy for talking straight from her heart, these judges are so supportive of each other and the contestants. Here’s to a remarkable season.
She votes Republican
Katy Perry lights up the room
Get this guy a record deal ASAP!
Katy spewing facts. No kid should ever lose friends in school like that.
@Corralyn we have spent TRILLIONS on the war against drugs. And each year, more people die from narcotics than the previous.
But banning guns will DEFINITELY work. 😊😊
@J More guns in the hands of citizens does not make a safer place. I really don’t understand what’s so hard to grasp about that. The whole “good guy with a gun” narrative has been debunked time and again. The very few times a good guy saves the day is FAR, FAR outweighed by the many, many times someone snaps and commits gun crime. More guns is NOT and will NEVER be the answer.
@Corralyn You must be slow. It’s not.
Tell me you’ve never handled a firearm without telling me you never handled a firearm.gif
@Corralyn what do you think they protect Presidents, first families, and the rest of the politicians with, rainbows and unicorns?
@Studentofsweetscience you sound like you might be experiencing psychosis. Please speak with your general health practitioner as soon as possible.
Katy is right, it has to change, we all have to change, and such a beautiful voice on this young man
@echo 5 democrats are
Quit voting for DemonRATS!!!
Those crocodile tears were for show, she’s dramatic as hell.
What can we do? We’re violent creatures.
@tml Good, go to Saudi Arabia where there is real oppression lol.
Went to school with this guy! Praying he makes it with all the will in his heart! 🙏🏼
I went to school in santa fe as well graduated in the early 2010’s and I’ve moved since then but this is awesome to see and he’s very talented. I wish the best for you and everyone back in the fe.
@ricky A that’s cool
im from alvin tx , dwn the road from sante fe like 5 minutes away
@usually_unusual what grade?
@SharpFox yo same
Katy is absolutely right. Our country has completely failed us. The fact that his passionate/storytelling voice comes from a traumatic school shooting where his own friends were shot dead is inexplicable. We need change. We can’t keep on going on like this. We should not be afraid to send our kids to school. As far as his voice, my favorite this season. Looking forward to hearing more from him. Bless him 🙏🏼
@lewisbeeman Man, don’t bring religion into this. Everyone can believe whatever tf they want
@American Advocate (LATINO) They don’t. The concept may be the same, but they are vastly different entities.
@Kim Acronym you pray for people like that… that’s how…
@Anthony Skallet you do know alot of them point to the same god right
@American Advocate (LATINO) I never said anything about the amount of people who believe. I’m saying world wide there are a ton of different gods that are worshipped, but somehow the christian one is magically the correct one?
The Stone family is so proud of you Trey. Brought tears to my eyes hearing your voice. Thank you for sharing your story and shedding light on this nightmare we as a community had to suffer. My brother would have been soo proud of you. 💚💛
Bless up 🙏
Love is healer and love is kind.
With and within the All is everpresent and eternal…just as your brother who remains always…less than a breath away. Peace be yours. ♡
I hope your family is doing well🙏 God Bless you and your family, and we know Christopher is Gods loving embrace🙏🙏🙏
Peace and love.
