Vote for CCU's Testone on 'American Idol'!

April 25, 2012

CCU alumna Elise Testone is one of the six finalists on Fox-TV's "American Idol," but she needs your help to stay in the singing competition.

The CCU graduate (2005) sings a Queen song tonight beginning at 8 p.m. and continuing to 10 p.m. Viewers may vote after the show either online, by phone or by texting.

Despite consistently being one of "American Idol's" bottom three vote-getters each week, Testone has remained in the running with some outstanding performances.

The weekly eliminations continue Wednesdays and Thursdays on the popular reality show, so be sure to vote for Elise.

The New Jersey native was a mainstay on the CCU campus, where she earned a degree in musical theater, performing with the late English professor Paul Rice, and vocal teacher David Bankston, as well as in the POP 101 group and various bands around town.

Testone has been living in Charleston since 2006, working as a voice teacher and performing at various venues.
