Abraham Lim is a contender on the second season of The Glee Project. He is the first Asian American to appear on The Glee Project. On July 4, 2011, Abraham released his first cover video on YouTube (of Adele's "Someone Like You") and continued to put out covers, amassing a fanbase as well as hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.


Born on November 9, 1989, Abraham, a true newbie to the performance world, indefinitely postponed his admission into law school to pursue his dreams of taking on the entertainment industry by storm. Oftentimes, he finds himself relating better to women and believes that it is due to the absence of a father-figure in his life. When not performing, Abraham works as a legal aid and a bartender in San Diego. Although he has only been performing for a year, his most rewarding performance was on the streets of San Diego, where he played for homeless people. With loads of hard work, determination, and a bit of sass, Abraham was discovered for The Glee Project through an online video submission.

  • I love this picture because apparently, I fell smack on my nose right before this picture was taken, but still continued on running and laughing towards the camera.
  • Showing my fierceness, even at a young age.
  • This is me and Chen, my godson that I met on a missions trip to Thailand. He is an orphan and one of the biggest inspirations in my life.
  • This is me hiking up to Half Dome at Yosemite Park. It was torturous at the time, but a memorable moment nonetheless. If that isn’t tenacity and persistence at its finest, I don’t know what is!
  • Ever since I started college, I can't remember a birthday when I was not caked in the face. This is one of the moments. Someone paid dearly for that, I guarantee it, HAHA.
  • Graduating from UCSD in 2009 was a special moment for me because I was the first one from our side of the family to graduate from a four-year university.
  • I took this after my mom got home from a 16-hour shift at work. You know your mom loves you when she can work that many hours only to come home and smile when she sees you simply because you’re there.
  • My mom loves art, so for Mother's Day, I took her to Redondo Beach to feast on king crabs and took her to the Getty after our meal.
  • The Met is one of my favorite places in the world and I used to frequent it when I lived in New York. When this picture was taken, I just sat in front of the painting for what seemed like the longest time.
  • (L)MIA was an event I held on-campus at UCSD to raise money for the rehabilitation and aid of the homeless community in San Diego. It was one of the very few times I sang in public.
  • My two best friends on either side of me and another close friend of mine. Sometimes, not much has to be said between the closest of friends to really get each other. I'm so blessed.
  • On the dance floor.
