She then joined The Cartoon Network as a part of the Cartoon gang, and was later a Coca-Cola Kid in the 1996 Summer Olympics Atlanta.

In 2004, she joined the third season of “American Idol” and finished as a runner up to winner Fantasia Barrino.

Her debut album entitled “Blue Skies” was released at the end of the year, and debuted in 52nd spot on the Billboard 200, selling well despite not having much advertising, and helping to increase her net worth.

Two years later, she released an acoustic EP entitled “Unplugged in Nashville”, and then released another song entitled “Good Goodbye” which was used by her character in “The Young and the Restless” TV series in 2011-12.

The following year, she was cast in “Wyatt Earp’s Revenge” and then made a cameo appearance in the Lifetime special “All About Christmas Eve”.
