Rudy Cardenas is no stranger to the stage.
But he is a stranger to taking it by himself.
The American Idol finalist has been the lead singer for the band M-Pact, which won Billboardâ€™s prestigious â€œBest Unsigned Bandâ€ contest and subsequently signed with indie specialty label Primarily A Capella.
Rudy graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a major in vocal performance. As seen on last night's American Idol auditions, he's been able to turn this talent into a trip to the show's final 24.At least.
