An amazing singer on American Idol Season 5. He was in the top three but was voted off. He was born and raised in Richmond, Va. Elliot worked at Westbury Pharmacy, Melito's and as a disc jockey for a radio station before his time on AI. He is 90% deaf in one ear and dropped out of high school in 10th grade. Neither him nor his family knew of his talent before he did a karaoke performance at Champp's Restaurant at a mall. Elliott's mom has become just as famous as him on american idol and won an award for best family moment.
Did you see Elliott Yamin Perform on AI last night? HE WAS AMAZING!!!
