One of the current favorites to win, Colton Dixon tells HollywoodLife.com how being on ‘American Idol’ has reunited his faith and allowed him to be inspired by others!

Colton Dixon has charmed the socks off of the country this season on American Idol with his cheerful disposition, incredible voice and spiky hair. However, the 20-year-old artist is thankful to this competition for more than just putting his name on the map — it’s also managed to ground him as well.

“The fan mail is AMAZING. It keeps all of us going, not just me,” he told HollywoodLife.com exclusively April 10. “I love hard copy fan mail. That’s the best! There’s something about getting a letter. I try to reply to as many as I can.”

He remembers one letter in particular being very touching. “[This kid] has been in a wheelchair all of his life — he was born that way,” he said. “He was just sending me letters thanking me for my encouragement and he just kind of reconnected me with my faith. Stuff like that, it’s like, ‘God is using me for this.’ It’s crazy.”

Keep up the good work, Colton! We can’t wait to see how far you go — you’ve got the talent, the looks, and best of all — the personality.
