Biography


Jessica Sanchez, though garnering meteoric stardom after participating on "American Idol", actually had stolen many American's heart before then. When she was ten, she performed Aretha Franklin's "Respect" at Showtime at the Apollo, wowing everyone including host Whoopi Goldberg.

A year later, she auditioned for "America's Got Talent" but didn't get picked. She got a second chance in the wild card round as the choice of judge Brandy Norwood for her raw talent, but she once again didn't make it despite being called "one of the best I have ever heard" by Simon Cowell.
