This week's contestant is Shawn Hampton from Round Rock, Texas. This is another repeat -- in fact, it's one they've already repeated. Perhaps we're in a summer rerun cycle. No matter, I tend not to remember previous episodes, and so one still has to guess what's hidden. In this particularly case, that did make it a touch bit easier for me to get, though. As I wrote before, the piece by pianist Bruce Adolph is quite lovely, and the composer is gettable. The song is well-known but impressively hidden, in large part because of a key change, though there's a gorgeous passage where the tune is most recognizable.
