VocalMolly Student Spotlight 

Who are some of the Vocal Molly's amazing singers and actors?

I had the pleasure of coaching Devin Velez when he was a Top finalist on American Idol , season 12, when Mariah Carey was one of the judges! He won over so many with his rendtion of "Somos Novios". Since Idol, Devin has had quite a career! Highlights include an NPR Tiny Desk concert and performances at the famed Troubador in Los Angeles.

I was also the first teacher of Fiona , who went on to star as "Young Anna" in Disney's "Frozen" on Broadway!

Danielle Coupet was on NBC's "I Can See Your Voice" as the "Boxer" ! 

Recently, students have been accepted to prestigious drama and music programs.

In Chicagoland, students have done summer programs at Drury Lane Oakbrook, and even got to sing for Lyric Opera soprano Amanda Majeski!

Locally, students have also performed at the Woodstock Opera House, Elgin Symphony,  Metropolis Performing Arts Center, as well as the Marriott Lincolnshire Theater
