DANVILLE – Danville native Grace Leer will be singing for your votes this season on “American Idol”! Leer made it through to the Top 10 on May 3. She is now counting on those fans to vote her through to the Top 7.

This isn’t Leer’s first time on a televised talent show. In 2003, when she was 11 years old, Leer made it to the Top 20 on “American Juniors,” a spin-off of “American Idol” featuring younger contestants. While attending San Ramon Valley High School, she continued singing and performing, but she put her music career on hold when her incredible soccer skills earned her a scholarship to play Division 1 soccer at UC Berkeley.

Leer now lives in Nashville, playing “classic country music with a bluegrass twang” with the five-piece Grace Leer Band. She returned to Danville to be with her family during the shelter-in-place order and because of that, is performing from home during this season’s “American Idol.”

The Top 7 will be revealed on Sunday, May 10 on ABC.
