A local singer is making headlines.

Charles Allen tried out for American Idol, and now he's on his way to Hollywood.

Allen was among the sea of people who tried out for American Idol in Chicago.

Allen is from Saginaw and the son of blues singer Sharrie Williams.

During Thursday night's audition, he performed an original song, "Look at Me," which he sang at his commencement at Bridgeport High School.

The next step for Allen is Hollywood Week.
