Could a University of Maryland grad become the next American Idol?
Kriss Mincey hopes so. The local singer is currently competing on Season 12 of American Idol.
"I'm originally from Baltimore, MD, by way of Aberdeen, MD," Mincey said in an introductory video. (Watch the video included with this post.)
"Nothing gives me more joy than being on stage," she said.
Kriss is Los Angeles-bound after getting past a panel of judges in New York.
