Jessie Alagna is a small woman with a big voice.  She wowed judges in at the first audition with "Oh, Darling."  And by the time she made it to the Top 24  Sing-off, she was ready to belt out a tune from Jennifer Hudson.

By day, Jessie works at Hair by Bennie and Friends on Frankfort Avenue.  But by night she likes to hang out with friends, do crafts, sing karaoke, and perform in musical theatre.   She is also teaching herself how to play guitar.

She moved to Louisville from New York a few years ago.  The mother she calls a best friend is following the Fox in the Morning Idol competition on our website from Florida.

Jessie drives a PT Cruiser she named "Mr. Shneebly," which she says makes her think of a British gentleman with a bowler hat.
