Kendra Checketts: "Bad Guy"
Hometown: San Diego, California
Resident: San Diego, California
Kendra started acting at just four years old, but her powerful voice wasn't revealed until she performed in a talent show in the fourth grade. Realizing she had a gift, her parents would often make the two-hour commute to Los Angeles for auditions. One night while they were driving home, her father had a brain hemorrhage that left him in the hospital for the next year. Kendra did her best to lift his spirits by singing to him and playing piano in the lobby. Now that he's fully recovered, Kendra has released multiple singles on Spotify and Apple Music and started singing at events to help raise over $80,000 for various charities.
