Tyson Venegas (born on August 31, 2005, age 17 yeas old) is a Filipino-Canadian singer who recently became a topic of talk after he wowed Lionel Richie, Katy Perry & Luke Bryan during American Idol: Season 21 auditions.

Tyson sang Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind,” and within 20 seconds, everybody noticed how impressed judges were with his performance. As Venegas stopped singing, Lionel, Luke, and Katy gave him a standing ovation; he was asked to bring his mom, who was standing outside the audition room.
