Megan Danielle of American Idol Season 21

Megan Danielle is one of the singers to announce she auditioned for American Idol Season 21.

American Idol returns to ABC on Sunday, Feb. 19 for its Season 21 premiere.

Here’s more about Danielle.

* She’s no stranger to singing competition shows, having made it to the semifinals (Top 9) on Season 18 of The Voice in the spring of 2020 after auditioning at age 17.

* Megan turned just one chair with her blind audition performance of “Remedy” by Adele, but that was enough to earn a spot on Team Kelly Clarkson. She was especially impressive covering Kelly’s “Piece by Piece” in the knockout round, bringing her coach to tears with the performance.

* Since The Voice, the young woman from Douglasville, Ga. has been performing regularly as a worship singer. She released a country single — “Top of the World” — in 2021, but refers to herself as a Christian singer-songwriter on Instagram.

* Megan released her first Christian single “All Around” on Feb. 4, 2022, as a tribute to her “papa,” who passed away in late 2021. She sang the song for him in the hospital the day before he died.

* Around the same time, Megan announced on Instagram that she was working on her first Christian EP. It has yet to drop, but stay tuned.

* Her other release to date is “In the Rain,” a duet with Levi Watkins, a Season 18 colleague on The Voice who wrote the song and invited her to sing on it.

* Her parents divorced when she was young, meaning Megan was raised by a single mom along with four other siblings.

* She doesn’t come from a musical family, but told Voice Views in 2020 that she turned to music as a way to cope with her parents’ divorce.

* That divorce “made me feel so hopeless, sad, and lonely. So, I decided to start singing. It brought me peace. Ever since, I’ve connected with music more than anything in my life,” she explained at the time.

* She said her first public performance was when she was 15 years old at a restaurant in Douglasville.
