Her dad, Gilbert, a Mexican-American, originally hailed from Texas and serves in the U. Her influences include Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston just to name a few.

This just in: De Andre Brackensick is no Billy Joel.
The curly-haired American Idol hopeful took to the stage last night as part of the top 10, but clearly struggled through one of Joel's best known tracks, "Only The Good Die Young." Perhaps Tommy Hilfiger's advice for De Andre to let his hair hang all the way down threw this singer off his game.
Just recently, she signed a coveted contract for a guest-starring role as Frida Romero for the fourth season of “Glee,” which airs May 9.
