Rosado graduated from Durant High School in 2010. He is currently a student at Hillsborough Community College and works at the front desk clerk at an infectious diseases doctor's office. His musical influences are Francesca Battistelli, Kirk Franklin and Israel Houghton.
Rosado had previously auditioned for American Idol four previous times, up to Season 11. He auditioned for Season 11 in Savannah, Georgia and was presumably good as he advanced to Hollywood; his audition was never aired. While in Hollywood, Rosado, nicknamed "Jere Bear" by Jennifer Lopez, sang "Superstar" by Delaney and Bonnie for his beginning solo and "Mercy" by Duffy for his group performance. His final solo wasn't aired. He advanced to Las Vegas and sang "Rockin' Robin" by Bobby Day and was advanced to the Final Judgement round. During that round he sang "I Know You Won't" by Carrie Underwood and was advanced to the Top 25 men group by the judges. In the Top 25 men group, he sang "Gravity" by Sara Bareilles and was sent to the Wild Card round by the judges. In the Wild Card round he re-sang the song he sang at his final judgement performance. He was one of the three contestants to advance to the finals. During the Top 13 in the finals, he sang "Ribbon in the Sky" by Stevie Wonder and was eliminated. Rosado finished 13th out of all.
