This episode I’m joined by Kree Harrison, the runner up of American Idol’s Season 12. 

She tells me how she ended up on the show, what the audition process was like, and even shares some behind-the-scene Hollywood stories she’s never told before!

An exclusive look into what it’s like to be on the show, she tells me what her game plan was like, and how she managed to stay calm while under so much pressure. 

Kree’s brand new album “Chosen Family Tree’ has just been released, so make sure to check it out, it’s awesome!   

“Records are like a puzzle. So whether this beautiful puzzle piece is awesome or not, if it doesn’t fit on this record then it doesn’t fit. But the song Second Choice did on this one.” – Kree Harrison
