Read rest HERE.

Such sad, sad news. Michael was one of my favourites from S7, loved his soulful voice and sense of humour. Can hardly believe it.
Here’s the Let It Be he sang with Brooke, David and Benton Paul:

Loved his version of this Dolly Parton song during S7:

Deepest sympathies to his family and friends, including David.
May Michael rest in peace.

    So very sad to read about Michael. A really talented guy with a great sense of humour. Much too young to leave, so very unfortunate this happened. I remember seeing him on a special with D Foster and he was so good, yes…had a unique and soulful sound.
    Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends, I know he will be missed. Sad news.

    Such devastating news to hear about Michael Johns ;(. I loved his personality and he really did have such a great voice! He will be sadly missed by all those who knew him…sending my condolences and prayers to his wife, family and friends.

    Was so very shocked and saddened to hear of such an untimely passing of Michael Johns, and from such an apparently random, unexpected cause. Jeez. Life, sometimes. Stopped in his prime and such talent. Enjoyed him and his playful humor…he was another of the “special stories” from that magical Season 7 of American Idol.
    Thank you for posting that article link, Deb…so much in that I didn’t know. The stories behind the scenes in this tough music biz really show how tricky and hard it can be…and what a long, winding road leads to every proverbial “overnight success” story.
    Prayers and heartfelt condolences to his wife, family and friends…so sorry for their loss.

    So tragic. He was one of my favorites on A17. Deepest sympathy to his loved ones.

    I am so sad. I loved his joy in life, his great voice and the care he showed for all those he worked with and loved. The Idol family has lost a favorite.

    So very sad, I really liked Michael Johns, his voice and the lovely person he was.

    The Hollywood Reporter did a follow-up article about him that includes a lot of messages from David Cook and other entertainers who had worked with him:

    So very, very sad. Such a soulful voice and great outlook on life. He will be one of those whose music will shine after he is gone.

    Just heartsick about this. 😦

    Just added Brooke’s FB post (& pic with D.) to the end of the post… really choked me up seeing them reunited for such a sad, sad reason….

      It is sad Deb, but I’m glad they are getting together to share their memories of a great guy and friend. It will help the healing.
