”Total Eclipse of My Heart” by Bonnie Tyler
Collette is one of the most experienced contestants in Next Broadway Star. Her style, maturity, and performance speaks volumes about her “spitfire” personality that that lights up a room. The judges raved about her performance and wanted her to really get down and dirty like a true rocker. Let’s see if she can get her ‘hair down’ for the semifinals.
Collette moved to NYC on a Greyhound Bus to pursue musical theater at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. While she enjoyed school, she found another type of education: singing in clubs with some of the world’s top session players. This set the stage to form what was later to become her first band: edibleRed. Later signing to Select Records, edibleRed went on to enjoy international success on MTV “Buzzworthy”, “Sucker Free” on MTV Canada, Radio 1 inHolland, FUSE, and VH1.com and on the hit TV show Cash Cab.
Collette branched out on her own as a radio DJ interviewing Coolio, Joan Collins and the cast of MTV’s “The Buried Life”. In addition, she worked as a session singer appearing on various commercials and the Martha Stewart Christmas Special. www.myspace.com/ediblered
