- fun faith fact! Daughtry's first band was called Absent Element and they performed Christian covers
He was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol and became the show's rock star heartthrob. Although he didn't win the big prize, his debut album reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200. His 2007 hit "Home" made it onto the Christian charts, arousing suspicion about the artist's faith. Fans of Daughtry know that his pre-Idol band "Absent Element" performed Christian music and a cover of the popular "Heart of Worship" can be found on YouTube. Photo courtesy of John Steel.
