Fritz Hager from American Idol Season 20

Fritz Hager III is among the singers to confirm he auditioned for Season 20 of American Idol.

American Idol returns to ABC on Sunday, Feb. 27. Here’s more about Fritz.

* He’s a singer-songwriter and graduate of Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, Texas.

* Fritz has one song on Spotify, “Open Waters,” released in 2020, but has more on the way. Check out “Open Waters” below.

* He recently completed a successful Kickstarter, raising more than $6,500 to help fund a debut EP of four to six of the songs he’s written over the past two years.

* Fritz says the music on the EP will be a snapshot of his life during that time. “I treat songwriting as a form of therapy, so my music speaks on insecurities, love and heartache, every existential crisis that a person would struggle with in their 20s, and most importantly how to come to terms with and overcome them.”

* After high school, Fritz began attending Oklahoma City University with a double major in musical theater and vocal performance.

* He’s been heavily involved in musical theater for years, most recently posting promos for “Newsies,”
“The Addams Family Musical” and “West Side Story” (he played Tony) to his Instagram page.

* When he was a senior in high school, he was chosen as one of six finalists in the National Endowment for the Arts 2018 Musical Theater Songwriting Challenge.

* Fritz earned the honor with a song called “If I Lie Here” — about a guy asking a girl to take him back in spite of their past difficulties. It was from a 14-song musical he was writing at the time.

* In announcing his Idol audition on social media, Fritz put together a 30-second video labeled “a childhood dream came true this year.”
