Didi was born in New York before moving to Tennessee at the age of 7. Didi started singing in the fifth grade. In school, she sang in the musical “Grease” and frequently performed the national anthem in front of various crowds.
Didi auditioned for American Idol in Los Angeles, California, where she has lived for four years.
At the audition she sang The Beatles’ song “Hey Jude.” The judges all loved her performance, including guest judge Avril Lavigne. She became a front-runner in the competition following her well-praised performance of judge Katharine McPhee’s song “Terrified” on the first solo of Hollywood Week.
On March 31, 2010, Didi was eliminated from the competition and finished in 10th place.
Didi credits her friend, Rebecca Joy Lear who tragically died, as one of the reasons she auditioned for American Idol.
