Ben was raised in Fenton, Arkansas by his mother. His parents divorced when he was only four years old. He grew up singing in his grandparents' church and has never had formal singing lessons. Ben is currently living in California with his dad, who has never taken his singing seriously. In fact, Ben didn't even tell his father that he was auditioning on the show. If Ben wins the $1 million, he plans to invest in rebuilding his grandparents' Arkansas church, where he honed his love of music during his childhood.
