Someday: Your New Broadway Idol

Someday: Your New Broadway Idol

Sure, there's a lot of fuss over who will win "American Idol" this evening, but it's not too early to start considering who may someday vie for the crown.

I'm here to tell you that someday, you'll hear the name Cole Winston and you'll remember that you read about him -- and saw and heard him -- here first. His rendition of Nat "King" Cole's "L-O-V-E," performed when he was just nine years old, begins close to the one-minute mark.

Originally hailing from Chicago and now residing in Milwaukee (my childhood home), Cole happens to be the son of one of my college classmates. Her son Cole apparently has aspirations of one day being declared an "American Idol" and a Tony winner.

He certainly possesses quite the presence. Perhaps that's why the Milwaukee Brewers have invited him to sing the National Anthem before an upcoming game.

Cole, I proudly salute you!

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Oh wow, he is so cute! And what great stage presence. I'll definitely remember I saw him perform here first.

He enunciates very well, like Sinatra. If he has the passion for performance, it's his for the taking. I smell a Tony.
