Worship Pastor’s ‘Got Some Grit’ and Receives Golden Ticket on ‘American Idol’

Local news reported that church and community members, including Kaitlyn Logsdon and her mom, came out to support Case. Case has supported Logsdon’s singing and has often invited her to join him on the platform at church.

“I am so proud of how far Isaiah has gotten from, like from his starting to sing here,” Logsdon said. “I’m so glad to see him go and do something big, and I am so glad to be able to know him.”

Some other church and staff members had to rearrange their schedules in order to attend the watch party. “I’m here to support my brother,” said High School Youth Pastor Jacob Bellitto. He made changes to his plans in order for the high schoolers to attend the party and support Case.

Glenna Fanning, a church member and a long-time fan of “American Idol,” chose to postpone her vacation to be at the watch party. She reportedly cried “tears of joy” as she viewed Case’s audition. It was a completely different experience watching an audition of someone she knew.

“It’s fun watching it to see what the completion is and how they measure up to Isaiah,” said Fanning.

After his audition aired, Case headed back to the church lobby to greet and take pictures with those at the watch party.

Isaiah Case Has Years of Worship Experience

Isaiah Case currently serves as the youth worship pastor at First Christian Church in Jacksonville, Illinois. His father, Perry Case, is the worship pastor for the same church. Isaiah and his wife, Anna, have one 2-year-old son. Their family often quotes, “Love people and love Jesus,” throughout their daily lives.

Growing up in the church, Isaiah is quite accustomed to worship ministry. Starting at age 11, he found the time while being homeschooled to participate in worship ministry alongside his dad.

Isaiah “loves to lift up the name of Jesus and to inspire the youth students and main congregation to do the same,” according to his church staff bio.
