Caleb Johnson just won “American Idol” this week, but he has no time to party. After being crowned the latest winner the star has a full schedule of performances (and rehearsals) to share with the world. One big performance that will have millions watching is the annual 2014 National Memorial Day Concert in Washington, D.C. According to Washington Business Journal on Thursday, the singer is going to be kicking off the biggest concert on Memorial Day Weekend airing live on PBS. Caleb Johnson will open the 25th annual broadcast of the National Memorial Day Concert by performing the national anthem.

This might be one of the biggest platforms that singer has ever been offered as this isn't on an “American Idol” stage and millions of people tune in to the program. The event reflects on the members of military and their sacrifices given to the United States of America.

Caleb might be looking at a heavy schedule for quite a while. The entertainer is expected to go on tour and since he won the top prize, fans will expect to hear him on stage. According to USA Today on Thursday, Johnson wants to record an album with an expected date of release being sometime in August. That gives him three months to hit the studio between all of his other obligations.

Jena Irene is also expecting Caleb to attend prom with her at North Farmington High School in Michigan on May 28. That special event no doubt is on the calendar as both stars are expected to hit the dance floor (and maybe sing too.)

As “American Idol” fans know, this competitor is tough as nails and pursued his dream to the fullest. Auditioning more than once to get to the top, his commitment to being a performer has been challenged to the fullest. Caleb is probably happy to be seeing all the fruits of his labor come full circle, even if that means he is going to be very busy!
