Corey Curtis from American Idol Season 20

Corey Curtis is among the artists to announce that they auditioned for American Idol Season 20.

American Idol returns to ABC on Sunday, Jan. 27. Here’s more about Corey.

* He’s a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from the small town of Summerville, Ga.

* Corey’s already released four singles, “Nice Guys,” “Oh Aye,” “Beautiful Life” and “Good Morning Text.” Search for Cor3y Curtis to find the music on streaming sites.

* To date, the very catchy “Oh Aye” is clearly the most popular, with more than 120,000 streams on Spotify. There’s also a lyric video for that song, which you can check out below.

* In 2020, Corey submitted a video audition for The Voice. In it, he says music has been a “burning desire” for him for some time. He started playing drums at 10, guitar at 11 and piano at 12.

* At the time, Corey said he’d already written about 50 songs. He’s talked about releasing an EP on social media on a number of occasions. That hasn’t happened yet though he’s posted snippets of other originals.

* Prior to releasing his solo music, Corey was part of a Christian band called The Young Disciples with his brothers.

* He’s a graduate of Chattooga High School and was attending Georgia Northwestern Technical College as a business major when a local newspaper wrote a story about his debut single.

* In his Spotify bio, Corey says he has a simple goal for his music: “Just for someone to get something out of my music is all I want. I use the words I write in hopes of making someone smile, think of happy times or just feel better.”
