Leslie Hunt Wikipedia
Leslie Hunt is an American singer/songwriter from Chicago, Illinois. In 2007 she was a contestant on the sixth season of American Idol, eliminated from the Top 20 on March 1. Her debut album, From the Strange to a Stranger, was released in the same year.
Leslie Hunt has been performing as a musician since childhood. Singing and playing piano by age four, the St. Charles, Illinois native performed with Kenny Rogers at age 11 and had already played leading roles in productions of Fiddler on the Roof and The Music Man by age 13. In 2001, she inked a development deal with Sony and recorded a five-song demo the following year. Emboldened by a brush with death in Brazil, Leslie decided to audition for the sixth season of American Idol. She was chosen out of 104,000 competitors and quickly found herself in the national spotlight when she reached the "final 10 females" on American Idol 2007. From there, she found herself performing her original music on the Fox Morning Show in Chicago as well as many prestigious clubs, including The Empty Bottle, Martyr’s, Uncommon Ground, Elbo Room, Gunther Murphy's, Underground Wonderbar, and Katerina's. Leslie has shared the stage with legends such as Rick Springfield and Jim Peterik.
