American Idol 2016 Philadelphia Audition – Gianna Isabella House of the Rising Sun VIDEO

Gianna Isabella – House of the Rising Sun – Her mom is Brenda K. Starr, singer of the hit “I Still Believe.”  Mariah was her background singer! Brenda went to the same dance studio as Jlo in NYC. “I think I’m more nervous than you are!” says mom, before she bursts into tears, from pride. She’s along with daughter for emotional support. Welp. The kid can sing too. I’ve enjoyed other singing show renditions of this song more, but Gianna has a big, clear voice. She’s got the goods. “Your mommy would be proud!” declared Jlo. Mom comes in for a little Jlo reunion. They hug it out and reminisce about the old days. Mom sticks around as all 3 judges say yes.. As she shares with the judges how hard her daughter works, Jlo tears up a little with her. Mom hands daughter her Golden Ticket There are more hugs all around. “I guess I got four yesses!” Gianna adds afterward. Aw. Fun Fact: Gianna was also a contestant on X Factor 3.
