Personal Quote:

Be yourself and everything else will fall into place. Someone will always have an opinion about you, but what's most important is what you think of yourself.


During American Idol season 7, she lost her voice in Hollywood Week and insisted on going on vocal rest and was seen communicating through paper and pen to the camera throughout the week. Her voice was later restored and she sang "Chain of Fools" and was chosen to be in the Top 24. She later went on to be the 2nd runner up behind David Cook and David Archuleta. See more »
