He has a voice that can soothe the soul and hands that can heal -- meet the Michigan American Idol contestant who will take the stage Sunday and sing his heart out.

Jacob Moran of Dansville is now a nurse at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, but during his last semester of nursing school, he was contacted by American Idol producers.

They found clips of Moran singing from his living on Instagram, and that’s when things got interesting.

“From there we did like a Skype audition and then we went to Louisville, Kentucky, which is where I actually auditioned,” Moran told Lewis.

Moran will perform “Is That Alright” by Lady Gaga in a Star is Born. To find out if he made the cut, you’ll have to watch American Idol Sunday at 8PM on ABC.
