In 2000, 3 years after I first moved to San Francisco, I met a young girl named Deanne Palaganas. She was in my chorus club at the very first elementary school where I was in residence. She was full of personality, always smiling and she loved to sing! She was one of those kids you never forget.
Recently, I ran into her while I was rehearsing a group she was performing with. Out of the blue she asked me if I would consider being her mentor and now Juana’s Voice is mentoring her and helping her prepare to chase her dream! She is scheduled to be in Los Angeles this July to audition for “The Voice”.
Deanne is a young woman fierce with ambition and stunningly talented who works incredibly hard, follows through with everything and has the courage to listen to her heart. We are honored to be here with her as she walks this path.
Please follow her FB page and send her positive energy as she goes for it!
