WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - It's was a special lunch hour for WILD 95.5 viewers as they received an intimate concert with The X Factor runner up Chris Rene.

"My whole life people have been asking me, 'Why don't you go on one of those shows? Why don't you try to get your music on the radio?' And I was like, 'I'm just having fun with it right now'," said Rene. "I saw a guy names James' Durbin, who was on American Idol, and he's from Santa Cruz, California where I'm from. And I was inspired by him to go do it."

Rene's single is climbing on the iTunes charts and plans to drop his debut album this summer. If you're a fan, friend on Facebook him or follow him on Twitter.
