American Idol, Julie Zorrilla: another homegrown hopeful from Colorado

Look out, Denver. Apparently, we have another American Idol contestant in our midst. And this one fits the title of American Idol better than anybody we've seen thus far. This is the second year in a row that we've had two ladies in the contest hailing from Colorado. You've already seen Emma Henry from Littleton, who was given the nod to move on to Hollywood last week after her audition in Milwaukee.

Now meet Julie Zorrilla, a twenty-year-old Denver School of the Arts student, whose family immigrated from Colombia when she was just eight-years-old. Classically trained, the Latina siren sings in both Spanish and English and has been pursuing music since she was in her teens. Her audition took place in San Francisco, and she will presumably be featured on a forthcoming episode next week. Listen to "Don't You Know," from About Us, her 2008 Mercury Sauce debut.
