UN-AMERICAN IDOL! sign now

On behalf of the last generation to truly know, understand and appreciate good music, I hereby post this petition in protest against the age limit restriction requirement enforced by the producers of the musical competition television series "American Idol". I understand that a lot of musical acts in years past have started off young, but as of late (Along with the ever-changing face of the music industry as well as it's many genres.) there has been a massive surge of stars in the business who have recieved their "Big break" at ages well past 28 years old. Examples: Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson, Robert Cray, Keith Urban and Barry White. All who got their chances at stardom, all were past 28 years old when they got it. This age restriction is not only unfair because it places a belief in the fact that the music industry belongs exclusively to the young, but it's descriminative towards those who are still work hard trying to make their dreams in this business come true. Since the days of the immigrants who set sail across the ocean to seek their dreams here, America has always been a land of opportunity. Granted, not everyone is cut out to be an Idol. But EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A CHANCE TO TRY!...NO MATTER HOW YOUNG OR HOW OLD!







"A fair and impartial opportunity is ALL that we ask. Nothing that you yourselves (In this case, the producers of American Idol) wouldn't demand."-Benjamin O. Davis, Jr. Commanding Officer, 332nd Pursuit Squadron U.S.A.A.C. Also known as "The Tuskegee Airmen"







Now, That's the AMERICAN way!
