About the Performers
Ada Vox is a 24-year-old new singer/musician that rose to the number 10 spot on Season 16 of American Idol. Adam Sanders (aka Ada Vox), had been a contestant on Idol’s original run in season twelve, but hadn’t made it past Hollywood week because his talent didn’t click with the judges. So Adam created “Ada Vox,” a drag persona through whom he could sing anything he wanted and convey big diva songs to their fullest extent. Ada quickly won over the judges and impressed them each week with seismic performances of Radiohead’s “Creep” and Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good.” Although the audience did not vote Vox through to the Top 10, the judges waved her through without hesitation after her earth-shattering rendition of Queen’s “The Show Must Go On.” Ada now spends her time as a mainstream artist, touring the world and selling out arenas.
Effie Passero, a 26-year-old singer/songwriter from Modesto, California, was one of the impressive contestants of the 2018 season of American Idol. Judges were shocked and impressed and gave her a standing ovation once they heard her sing. Lionel Ritchie walked up close to her saying that with that kind of sound, he was sure she had an “extra volume knob” on her. Katy Perry, with her jaw hanging open said, “I just want to know who you are, how’d you get that voice and why are you a property administrative manager?” Luke Bryan said, “I believe you’re a presence, you’re a look. I believe you have the whole thing going on, and when you deliver that, with the way your voice is, it’s like a command.” All 3 judges said they wanted to get to know her better and spend time with her, calling her a magic bullet – a secret weapon they were seeking. Though trained in opera for 10 years, she decided to pursue more of a singer songwriter path and has written more than 200 songs. Her real passion is rearranging music from the 1960s, 70s and 80s into rock piano ballads. With the help of her family and mentors, she has been able to travel all over the country performing and entertaining since she was 5 years old.
David (Anthony) Hernandez gained national attention with his powerful voice and affable personality as an American Idol finalist. He began acting and singing at age six, starring in musicals and performing with various theatre companies throughout Arizona. As a teenager David began writing original music and recording his material. A Phoenix native, Hernandez recently moved to Hollywood where he is writing new songs, working in the recording studio producing his newest music, and pursuing his passion for acting.
