Here’s everything you need to know about Noah Thompson
Noah Thompson is a construction worker who hails from Louisa, Kentucky. He is 19 years old and he loves to write and sing songs. He completed his schooling at Lawrence County High School and graduated in Kentucky.
Thompson’s love affair with music started at a very young age when his dad bought him his first guitar and gave him lessons. He was persuaded by a fellow worker to audition for American Idol. His motivation to go far in the singing show comes from his son Walker.
Noah and his longtime girlfriend Angel Dixon have been together since the year 2018. During the Hollywood Week, the singer told Lauren Alaina, “I recently became a dad. My little boy, he’s my strive for all this. Blows my mind that I’m even here, this could give me the opportunity to give my son an entirely new life, a better life.”
Noah’s dad wanted him to be in the field of music
During an interview with Hollywood Life, the 19-year-old stated that his father wanted him to be in music. His dad taught him to play his first chords and from there on he and music were inseparable.
It was his dad’s dream to see him shine bright like a diamond in the music industry one day. Thompson said, “Kind of the whole point of me being here, for my dad. I wanted to do it almost for the both of us.”
The singer further added, “[My dad] believes me in obviously, but I never believed in myself, so for me to have made it this far it’s definitely a confidence booster.”
Thompson dropped his first single ‘One Day Tonight’ a week ago
Earlier this month, Noah released his first song titled One Day Tonight. He expressed his excitement on the social media platform Instagram as well. At the moment, he has nearly 86k followers on the social networking service.
Carrie Underwood got emotional after meeting Noah Thompson
The winner of season 4, Carrie Underwood recently came forward to mentor all the top five contestants of the show on May 16, 2022, Sunday. It seems like Carrie struck a chord with one contestant. The name of that contestant is Noah Thompson.
Not long ago, Thompson tested positive for Covid-19 and he interacted with Underwood via a video call. At the time, he shared with the Ghost Story singer that he was planning to sing her song So Small as a tribute to the people he’s working so hard for his family back in Kentucky.
Carrie ended up relating a lot to Noah. During her solo interview, the If I Didn’t Love You singer spilled the beans on the show and said, “I do feel like this show was created for people like me, for people like Noah who didn’t know to dream that big but knew that they wanted to do something.”
While wiping a tear-off, the 39-year-old further added, “So it’s a beautiful thing. I mean I think back and that’s a decision that changed my entire life — I have no idea where I’d be. And to see contestants get every opportunity they’ve ever wanted is just magical.”
Post the show, in a group interview with various media outlets, Noah stated that he could not believe Carrie’s reaction after their one-on-one. He said, “We just kind of relate in that way — from a small town and want to make something of yourself and it’s hard. So for her to say that, to know she felt something for me — that was really amazing.”
Thompson continued, “I thought that if somebody like Carrie Underwood can relate to me in that way — that was amazing.”
