Emily Hunt says she's been singing her entire life. Her mom says she started talking when she was 6 months old, but she was humming before that.
She says she first performed in a talent show in the 3rd grade. She's now a high school senior at Crow High School.
She's taken piano lessons, but has never taken voice lessons.
Emily says she's auditioned for American Idol before in Seattle and almost made it through, so this would be a great second chance.
She says before her brother died at the age of 20, he told her he wanted to buy her a ticket to Hollywood, so she'd have a chance at a career.
