Lake Nona High School Student American Idol Alyssa Raghu

From the stage of Lake Nona High School, to her upcoming “American Idol”  audition set to premier nationwide, Alyssa Raghu is ready to make her debut.

“This has always been my dream. Anything that has to do with performance arts, I have been involved in,” said Alyssa.

The 16-year-old sophomore at Lake Nona High School has been singing since she was 4 years-old, performing since the 6th grade – and she has loved every minute of it.

“What’s great about Lake Nona is how everyone is connected. As a big family, we all support one another,” said Alyssa.

When you ask about her talent and success, the singer/songwriter points to others. With humility – she talks about family, teachers, coaches and fellow students who have all supported her in Lake Nona. Drama teacher, Mrs. Chase, took Alyssa under her wing, students showed her dance steps, and her vocal coach, Mrs. Randall, helped nurture her talent.

“Nobody was forced to support me, but everyone seems to have wanted to. That’s what makes me smile the most. That’s what I think about every day before I go to sleep. I am so grateful,” said Alyssa.

Prepare to watch Alyssa shine during her audition on the primetime premiere of “American Idol” this Sunday, March 11 at 8:00 PM on ABC.  Show your support and join the watch party at the Lake Nona High School Theater beginning at 7:30 PM. Together we can watch and cheer as Alyssa sings her heart out in front of superstar judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
