McKayla Marie grew up in Eugene and will be a freshman at Northwest Christian University, where she's planning to major in music and business.

She said she wrote her first song when she was five and she started performing when she was nine.

Over the years, she's taken guitar and voice lessons.

She says it would a mean a lot to her to get to audition in front of the American Idol producers because her ultimate goal is to be a performer, and any step that gets her where she wants to go, is a step in the right direction.
