"NOLA's Assata Renay gets golden Hollywood ticket for American Idol"

Of the experience , Renay says "Scary, very scary, like, I'm a performer. But it is different when you're getting in front of three celebrity judges. And they're judging you on every single note. And you only have a small window of time to really prove your whole voice, like a small snippet of time."

Renay's parents are Q-93's Uptown Angela and DJ Ro, and she's also the godchild of Twist's LBJ, but none of those connections help on the 'Idol stage.

Renay said, "No, that didn't matter. None of these people care who you're related to when you go. No one you just named could have given me that. You know what I'm saying? So, that's an accomplishment in itself for me because it's something that I can say I really worked hard to get." - WGNO (ABC)
