LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The fate of Jasper native Savion Wright is still up in the air, as a cliffhanger in Wednesday night's episode of American Idol did not reveal whether or not Wright will be moving onward to the Top 30.

In total, nine boys have passed through Hollywood Week making it into the Top 30 panel, leaving six slots still open.

Wright wrote on his Face book page early Wednesday morning "the hardest battle you will ever have to fight is between who you are now, and who you want to be. #WisdomWednesday #KeepLookingUp."

No telling if that is an allusion to his fate on the show, but only time will tell.

The 21-year-old Baylor University student has wowed the judges so far with his candid storytelling as he revealed several personal songs he has written, including one he dedicated  to his brother, Alfred.

The 28-year-old was found dead in a wooded area of Sabine County on Nov. 25. According to a county-paid autopsy report, his death was ruled as a "combined drug intoxication," stating that one of his ears and his tongue were missing.

In a previous KTRE interview with Rosalind Wright, the mother of Alfred and Savion, she said she is trying to balance the emotions that come into play while grieving for one son and encouraging another.

"He's letting me know that he feels Alfred's spirit right there with him, just continuously encouraging him to go on and to fulfill his dream," Rosalind Wright said.

Wright announced on several of his social media accounts that he will be attending the Justice for Alfred Wright Rally on Saturday, February 15 at the Faith Temple Center at 650 Pollard St. in Jasper, Texas. The rally starts at 10 a.m. and will feature a concert by Savion and several other American Idol hopefuls.
