ATLANTA — Cyniah Elise says her moment in the spotlight is something she’s been ready for since she was a little girl.
The Atlanta teen visited the WSB-TV studios after she auditioned in front of the American Idol all-star judging panel, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
The 17-year-old attends Martha Ellen Stilwell School of the Arts and she said she’s from a very musical family. She said she first started singing when she was 2 years old when she performed a solo at her church.
Cyniah adores Beyoncé and says American Idol-alum Jennifer Hudson is one of her idols.
Watch her blow away the judges with her rendition of Calum Scott’s “You Are the Reason” and how her family reacted to her ticket to Hollywood:
