Joshua Ledet takes top 13 on 'American Idol'

Westlake native Joshua Ledet climbed his way to top 13 on American Idol.

Idol judges gave Ledet a standing ovation after he covered former American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson's song You Pulled Me Through on Tuesday.

"I just know the struggle that my family's been through and what I've been through and I try to minister through my music, hopefully I can try to help someone else out with what I sing," Ledet said.
