With Pain resulting from Kidney issues, He sang to Glory. Meet America's newest Idol, Phillip Phillips.

America's Newest Idol, Phillip Phillips.
He sang through pain to glory. America's latest Idol Phillip Phillips has a story many would love to hear. But that would be after his kidneys have been operated upon. Phillips, 21, a pawn shop worker from Leesburg, Ga., looked stunned when host Ryan Seacrest announced his name, then speechlessly accepted a hug from Sanchez and congratulations from his fellow finalists. They had indeed come a long way, but for Phillip, Sure the road was a bit longer than usual. He is the fifth male "Idol" winner in a row. His victory extended the "American Idol" winning streak for men to five consecutive seasons. The last female to win, and the last non-white, was Jordin Sparks in 2007. He joins the growing trend of WGWGs — white guys with guitars, who have been crowned America's best in the past 5 seasons.

Phillips has been weathering some significant pain due to issues with his kidneys. Phillip Phillips will return home to Georgia after completing publicity duties. The 21-year old was advised surgery in March after experiencing severe abdominal pain. He may likely miss one or two dates at the start of the American Idol tour this summer.
