American Idol Top 36: Alexis Grace
Like Lil Rounds and Megan Corkrey, Alexis Grace is a young mom. She has a little girl, Ryan Elizabeth, who she calls a "gift from God" and says her daughter helped motivate her to do "Idol".
Newsday calls the stay-at-home-mom a "pink pixie", but she seems to have substance. She's twice been rejected from "Idol" in seasons past, but decided to give it a go this year for a third time, which turned out to be the charm.
She likes all kinds of music--country, pop, rock, soul, classical ... it will be interesting to see Alexis' range as "Idol" continues. As her MySpace page announces, she made it through the 2nd day of Hollywood.
