'American Idol' hopeful Chris Medina's heartbreaking love story reads like a Nicholas Sparks novel. The 26-year-old Barista was on the verge of marrying his fiancee, Juliana Ramos, after a two-year engagement when she was involved in an automobile accident that resulted in serious brain trauma and left her confined to a wheelchair.
However, Medina's love and devotion to Ramos did not waiver. Where another man might have fled, Medina dedicated himself to his fiancee, becoming her caretaker, along with Ramos's mother.
Indeed, Medina's story could break even the hardest of hearts. But does it have a place in what's supposed to be a talent competition?
