Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush told NBC TODAY’s Matt Lauer he won’t rule out an audition for the TV talent contest ‘American Idol’ some time in the next three years.
“I have a voice and a message to share,” Bush told Lauer, ” and I want to bring it to a world that’s lost its way.”
Nevertheless, Bush said he is “not officially announcing” his intention to try out for the popular singing show just yet.
“I’m really waiting for the right moment to make up my mind,” Bush said. “There are still a lot of people who have not had the chance to beg me to try out for Idol. It would not be fair to cheat them out of that opportunity.”
The son and brother of former U.S. Presidents, Jeb Bush is perhaps best known for his 1989 performance in the front row of a Miami Sound Machine concert, when he actually sang, and led a conga line, all the way around a packed arena, catching the eye of then-rising star Gloria Estefan.
