The morning after being the featured audition on ABC's reboot of American Idol,  Mara Justine of Galloway was my guest on the Lite Rock Morning Show with Eddie Davis to talk about the experience.

Lite Rock has been supporting Mara since she advanced to the finals of America's Got Talent in 2014, when she was only 12. I can remember her coming in to the Lite Rock studio with her mother to tell me about that show on her way to Galloway Township Middle School in the morning.

Now a wily veteran at 15, Mara was chosen to open the second night of the two-night premiere of American Idol for a reason. She's really, really talented!

Here is our conversation about her Idol appearance, having to stay quite about her audition until it aired and what happens next on her way to Hollywood on American Idol. Good luck, Mara!
