Wyatt Pike has capitalised on the attention he received from his stint and sudden departure from American Idol, as he has released a new song and received his second shot of the Pfizer vaccine.
Wyatt Pike took to Instagram on Wednesday, 21 April 2021, to reveal that he has received his second and final shot of the Pfizer vaccine. The former American Idol contestant shocked fans of the show when host and producer, Ryan Seacrest, announced his abrupt departure from the show. No reason for his departure was stated at the time. However, considering that the show had highlighted mental health in his story, it led to much speculation.
Before revealing that he had received a double shot of the Pfizer vaccine, Pike confirmed that he would not give up on his music aspirations. This was when he released a music video for his new single, Friday Nights, to his over 60 000 followers on Instagram at the time.
However, it seems that the attention he received for his departure from American Idol has contributed to his growth on social media. Currently, the musician sits with over 88 000 followers on Instagram.
