(ABC 6 News)-- Our ABC 6 Idol contest winner has been selected.
25-year-old Sophie Lee from Albert Lea, MN, will be getting a front-of-the-line pass to an official American Idol audition.
Lee works at a residential group home in Austin, MN. She has been singing her whole life, though she has never had singing lessons. The talented young woman sang the national anthem for the American Legion Riders in Albert Lea and for the Lakers baseball team this summer.
When ABC 6 News told Lee she had won … “I didn’t know what to say,” she said. “I had tears coming out of my eyes and I was so happy. It was such a good moment, I will remember it forever!”
Lee is hoping the audition will be her big break but says she will cherish the experience no matter what.
Lee will audition in Kansas City, MO on Sept. 9.
The ABC 6 News team wishes her the best of luck and will follow her journey.
