Hometown: Orlando, FL Dani has been performing since she completed her very first talent competition in fifth grade and won second place. At age 16, after attending a theatre magnet program in High School, she started teaching herself how to play the guitar and write original songs, and has since written and independently released four albums and two singles. Dani made it on to the Top 48 of "America¿s Got Talent" Season 6 last year (2011), and gained a devoted following of online fans from doing so. She loves to mix up her acts with bits of comedy, rap and audience participation. With such an independent attitude, Dani has expressed that she would want to play an androgynous female who bravely walks away from her Mormon upbringing if she ever got the opportunity to be on "Glee." Dani originally auditioned for "The Glee Project" at the Nashville open casting call.
