Local singer competing on American Idol

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - A singer from Augusta will appear on FOX's American Idol next week.

Miranda Pokrzywinski auditioned in San Francisco after winning the opportunity at Walt Disney World.

The 27-year-old is a graduate of Harlem High School and also plays guitar.

"I'm the only one from Augusta who has auditioned," said Pokrzywinski. "I met someone who is from Columbus, Georgia, so that was fun to have someone from Columbus and Columbia, South Carolina. So a couple people from close to home that I could relate to and talk to."

The San Francisco auditions will air next Wednesday and Thursday yet. American Idol's rules prohibit Pokrzywinski from telling us just yet if she got a ticket to Hollywood.
