Sam Woolf Continues on American Idol

See Below for Voting Process, Ends 1 p.m. Thursday

Sam Woolf, courtesy of American IdolIt’s always good to hear that someone locally is making it big in this world. It’s even better when you know that person and his family.

Sam Woolf is one of the 11 finalists in American Idol - he is well-liked by the judges and he is getting good voting from the public. They like his talent. But I knew this a couple years ago, his father Scott started his bragging rights a couple years ago in our offices. Scott would show us videos and have us listen to this amazing talent. We were impressed back then, now it is great to see that Scott was right all along about his son.

And now our whole office is following the hashtag #woolfpack trying to get any insight as to what is up with this kid. These performers can’t provide much information about their upcoming performances, I can only gather that he is enjoying himself but under a great deal of pressure. So I am showing my support in a way I can.

You can help too, by voting for Sam. Now that Idol is in their finalists' shows on Fox 13 you can vote when the show starts at 8 p.m. on the east coast Wednesday night. Google and Facebook is partnering with American Idol and have announced a SuperVote process, where your selection can count as 50 votes. To support Sam with a SuperVote go to to get the app, or vote on Facebook or Google Search. Voting ends at 1 p.m. the next day in the east. One vote with text and toll-free voting ends two hours after the show ends. Each performer is given a voter code and the results are announced the next night on the show.

Sam attends Braden River High School, can be seen on and can be contacted on Twitter ‏@samwoolfmusic.

I know one client who has pledged his support. Vince Plodzien knew Scott and his enthusiasm for Sam when I was involved in the sale of his home on Siesta Key a couple years ago. Vince called here last week wanting to know how he can help support Sam. The enthusiasm is growing.

The residents of this area support their arts. Sam is not the first American Idol contestant from this area to go far in the judging. Syesha Raquel Mercado of Booker High School in Sarasota was second runner-up on the seventh season of American Idol. American Idol finalists Jeremy Rosado and Shannon Magrane claim Tampa Bay as their home.

These are exciting times to support our American Idol finalist. I wish him well as the voting continues on the show.
