John Kennedy of CanWest News Service interviews the second winner of Canadian Idol:
- Post-Idol Kalan puts mom first
“By the time Porter was crowned Canadian Idol in 2004, previous winner Ryan Malcolm was already on his way to being the answer to a trivia question. “I think sometimes people assume that it’s going to be a guaranteed career,” says Porter, “and I think it’s just sort of that foot in the door, that jump start to a possible career.” But Porter had better luck than his predecessor. His multi-platinum first single, Awake in a Dream, propelled his debut album, 219 Days, to the top of the charts and sparked a virtually sold-out 65-stop tour. Porter earned three Juno nominations and a MuchMusic Video Award. Still, Porter says he had mixed feelings about Idol.”
