Paul has flown from Hawaii to L.A. to Chicago; he's met Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson—but his wildest dream is just beginning. It's time for him to make his international debut.
"Ladies and gentlemen," Mariah announces, "please welcome my new friend Paul, singing one of my number-one-hit songs, "Hero."
After Paul's performance brings the audience to a standing O, he probably thinks that his day couldn't get any better. But Oprah has yet another surprise: Max Siegel from Verity Records—the largest gospel label in the United States—would like to offer Paul a contract to record a song. And the song will be produced by none other than Mariah Carey! Wildest dreams do come true.
