During the first half of 2012, the son of a preacher from Westlake, La., took us all to church every week on FOX's "American Idol," bringing soul, heart and an amazing talent to TV screens across the nation.  In the process, he earned some of the best reviews of any competitor on 'Idol' in ages.  He didn't take home the crown, but as it turns out, he didn't need it.  With a voice like Joshua Ledet's, all you need is a stage.

So here's 107 JAMZ's tribute to Southwest Louisiana's own 'Idol.'  Joshua Ledet made history in more ways than one when he was on 'Idol.'  He brought people of all ages, races and creeds together for a few nail-biting weeks, as we all waited to see if he would advance from round to round.

Not only did we collect all the stories we did on Josh, but make sure to keep checking back for new stories as his career progresses.  This is your one-stop shop for all news Joshua Ledet, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we've enjoyed his journey.
