Colton Dixon talks about his faith, music, and 'edgy' hair

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The hit TV show "American Idol" has helped launch some of the biggest names in music.

This season it introduced the world to Colton Dixon, a Christian artist who stayed true to his faith on the show despite pressure to tone it down.

Dixon has said that he'll be recording an album this year. He said he wants his music to create an atmosphere of worship for his fans.

"It's a ministry first for me," he explained. "You know, if I can throw a show for five people and have one person come to Christ through it, so be it. You know, that's what it's about for me."
