Filipino-American singer Francisco Martin took to social media to reflect on his American Idol journey after bidding goodbye to the show on Sunday, May 17 (US time). 

"It’s been a journey. A ride. And an amazing experience overall. Still, I’ve got this smile on my face. I’ve grown so much as a human and as an artist throughout these past few months and I’ll never forget that. I’ve met a great deal of lifelong friends, unforgettable memories and have gained the support of all you beautiful souls. As a person dealing with anxiety, you’ve all accepted me for who I truly am and have supported me throughout all of it. Jeez I’m just so in love with all of you," he said.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Welp. It’s been a journey. A ride. And an amazing experience overall. Still, I’ve got this smile on my face. I’ve grown so much as a human and as an artist throughout these past few months and I’ll never forget that. I’ve met a great deal of life long friends, unforgettable memories and have gained the support of all you beautiful souls. As a person dealing with anxiety, you’ve all accepted me for who I truly am and have supported me throughout all of it. Jeez I’m just so in love with all of you. To be able to have inspired many of you to follow their dreams is something I never thought would’ve happen in a million years. From the bottom of my heart, wherever you are, thank you so much. This is not the end but only a chapter that has come to a beautiful close. Thank you for riding alongside me on this journey. And a big thank you to American Idol for changing my life in ways I could never forget. Hope you’re ready to travel with me onto the next chapter in life. There’s a ton of room, don’t be shy. Grab a seat (if you’d like to) :-) See you soon loves. x
