Anna Grace Hunt, a North Carolina native and former Miss Teen Lumbee has impressed the judges of American Idol Season 22 scoring a Golden Ticket.

Her soulful voice resonates with audiences, and her journey is one of determination and passion.

Anna’s audition left judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie in awe, earning her the coveted golden ticket to Hollywood.

Hunt told Raleigh’s ABC11 she’s been singing since she was 12 years old, but struggled to share her voice with the world because she’s shy.

She is currently a freshman studying biology at UNC-Pembroke.
