HITS Daily Double

Viral Video of the Day 2

VIRAL VIDEO OF THE DAY 2: American Idol alum Chris Medina, who left the show last week in a tearful exit, becomes the first ex-contestant to release a major label single while the show is still in progress. Noted producer Rodney Jerkins and The Matrix' Lauren Christy, who wrote it, created “What Are Words” especially for Medina, whose fiancee Juliana suffered a severe car accident on the eve of their planned wedding, which confined her to a wheelchair, with the singer dedicating his Idol auditions to her. The Interscope-released single hit iTunes last Thursday. See the video, which premiered on line last Friday, below. (2/28p)
