Factory Underground Studio was a recent site for virtual auditions to American Idol which was a great opportunity for local Norwalk talent. Among those who auditioned were Factory Underground Tech student Bella Bardos, Gabi Pierre-Louis, a Norwalk singer who we have watched develop over the past four years, as well as Ariella Mendez, a former intern at Factory Underground Studio. All three singers were fortunate to to go the Front of the Line, ahead of the thousands of other singers in the open call, thanks to our relationship with the New York City talent agent tasked with finding singers in the New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut area. All three performed very well, with Gabi and Ariella moving on to the second round. Fingers crossed - we hope for good news in the next two weeks!
