Bellevue Air Force Servicewoman Sings a New Tune for Idol Auditions

OMAHA, NE -

American Idol is on the hunt for it's next superstar for its 13th season.

And Thursday night Omaha was the destination for the Midwest to show off their skills.

Siouxland News followed an active duty Air Force member from Bellevue, Nebraska who could be this year's winner.

20-year-old Paula Hunt has sung for the nation's greatest heroes, now she wants to bring her voice to you.

"I've always wanted that feeling of standing on a grander stage in front of, you know, hundreds of thousands of people, um people who know you, people who don't-getting to share your story with them, getting to share your struggle and getting to share, you know, from the beginning all the way to the end, who knows I could end up the next American Idol," said the vocal apprentice with the USAF Heartland Band of America. 

But, Paula isn't the only one vying for the title.

Siouxland News Reporter Beairshelle Edmé followed three other regional contestants hoping to make it to Hollywood.

And while the singer may have competition, she's still headed to Hollywood.

Paula didn't sing the Star Spangled Banner like she's use to, but instead sung an emotional rendition of an Etta James classic and coasted through with a unanimous vote from the judges.

She told Siouxland News that she's happy to take this new step in her career and to represent her country in a new way.

Siouxland News will keep tuned throughout this season to see if these contenders make it to the top.
