Laci Kaye Booth sings her heart out to the American Idol judges with her rendition of ‘Georgia On My Mind’ by Ray Charles.


This round of the audition takes place in Hawaii where the contestants are performing at Disney’s Aulani Resort. With her raspy, soulful voice, Laci clearly impresses the judges and audience with her unique take on ‘Georgia On My Mind’. Judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie all had positive reviews for her, sharing remarks with each other about just how special she is.

Laci has been singing from the age of 3 and grew up singing in church. Her voice is so full and rich that it makes her stand out from the crowd. And with her talent, beauty, and stage presence, it’s no wonder that she’s made it this far in the competition! She says that being on American Idol has been a dream of hers ever since she was a little girl.

"American Idol is really something I've wanted my entire life. I wished for it every single time I blew out the candles on my birthday cake, every time I threw a penny in a wishing well,” explains Laci. “This has been my wish my entire life.”

After Laci’s performance, Judge Katy Perry shares some exciting news with her. "Laci, thank you so much for being on this incredible journey with us. There's a lot of talent, and it's really difficult to get all of them into the Top 20, but I do believe that the timing is right for you."

Laci gasps when she realizes that she has made it into the Top 20 contestants. What she’s dreamed about her entire life is finally coming true! It will be great to see what other songs Laci performs in the upcoming episodes of American Idol. Her amazing voice is one that audiences will keep coming back for!
