Drew Erwin is a musician and high school student athlete from Memphis, Tennessee. Two years ago he began watching "how to" videos online and taught himself how to play the piano and guitar. His love for music grew, and Drew began playing for friends and at church and school events, posting his performances online for others to view. Drew did not even know his parents submitted his video for the America's Got Talent YouTube contest until he found out that he had been selected as a finalist. 1


Drew Erwin (or rather, his parents) submitted his audition onto YouTube. The audition consisted of singing "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" while playing the piano. His audition was strong to receive enough votes from YouTube users to vote him immediately into the Quarterfinals.
