Since the creation of John Robert Powers in 1923, our courses have produced an abundance of talented individuals, who have gone on to achieve great things, so we would like to share their inspirational stories. One of John Robert Powers’ most successful alumni, Jessica Sanchez, attended programs at the San Diego branch in 2006 and has since gone on to become a global singing sensation.
The 18 year old American superstar of Filipino-Mexican descent initially found success when she appeared in the first ever season of America’s Got Talent, at the tender age of eleven. In 2011, she shot to fame after competing in the eleventh season of the reality singing show American Idol. She won over the public with her incredible gift, making it through to the final two contestants and winning runner-up.
Jessica went on to sign a deal with Interscope Records and released her debut album ‘Me, You & the Music’ last year. The Californian singer has also appeared in Season 4 of the popular teen musical series Glee, showcasing her impressive acting and dancing skills as well as her beautiful voice. More recently, the songstress took part in a charity fundraiser concert earlier this month to raise money for the survivors of the Philippines’ super typhoon, Yolanda.
With so many accomplishments at the young age of 18, who knows what is next for John Robert Powers’ star pupil Jessica Sanchez. We will be keeping a close eye on her as we are sure she has much more talent to give and many more accolades to achieve.
