Alpharetta teen Isabel Gonzalez is going to Hollywood. American Idol judges gave her a coveted golden ticket Wednesday night.
The Alpharetta High School student was nominated by her aunt, and Idol judge Randy Jackson came to her school earlier in the school year to meet her. He was impressed enough that the 16-year-old got an audition in Charlotte, N.C. And the rest of the judges joined in that praise, voting to send her to the next level of competition.
In that video clip, Mariah Carey can be heard telling Gonzalez "People are going to fall in love with you, because you are a star."
According to @Idol_Insider's blog post, the song Gonzalez picked fo her audition was Sam Cooke's version of "Nothing Can Change This Love."
