Paul in the recording studio

2 of 11
Mariah didn't stop there, because she's a dream maker! Just when you thought Paul's dream couldn't get any wilder, Mariah personally wrote him a special song. Mariah says she and pianist Kenneth Crouch wanted to write a song that would be inspirational.

But before Paul can perform the song, he heads back into the recording studio. And Randy Jackson from American Idol is there again, too! Paul gets some singing lessons from Mariah's vocal coach, Maryann Tatum, while Kenneth puts finishing touches on the tracks.

"I wanted to showcase the breathy part of his voice which I think is so beautiful," Mariah says of Paul. "I just hope that people who hear it enjoy it and sense the pure heart that he has when he sings. I feel like that's going to shine through."

Paul still can't believe that he's living his wildest dream. "It's so cool," he says. "This is a major journey for me—a boy from a small town. I mean, this is incredible."
