Rachel Zevita, An Opera Singer On American Idol 6

January 25, 2007 02:30 AM by Joe Reality

Rachel_zevitaRachel Zevita is an eighteen year old from New York, New York.  Rachel
goes to school for Opera, and she said if they found out that she was
at the American Idol auditions that she might get kicked out and lose
her scholarship. 

In her New York audition, Rachel Zevita first sang “Eternal Life” by Jeff Buckley.  Carol Bayer Sager said she liked it and requested another song.  For her second song, Rachel sang “Get Here (If You Can).”  Then Randy Jackson requested a little Opera, so for her third song, Rachel sang Opera.

Simon Cowell said “Well, this is all a bit of a guessing game now, Rachel.  We’ve heard three different songs, who do you want to be?”  Rachel replied “American Idol,I can sing anything, every week you guys pick a different theme, I can sing anything.”  Simon clarified that he wasn’t criticizing but wanted to know who she would like to be.  Rachel said “I would like to be me, and me, I’m a singer, songwriter, and a rock star.” 

Carol, Randy, and Paula all said yes to Rachel going to Hollywood, and Simon Cowell just said “You’re all coming to Hollywood.”  After her audition, Rachel offered this message, “The South has had a lockdown on American Idol.  This year it’s New York.  We need some life, we need some color, some excitement, it’s me.”

    She was by far my favorite. I loved her attitude. Her unwavering confidence (not arrogance) was impressive. Unfortunately, she seems to be missing. She probably dropped out quietly to avoid losing her opera scholarship. Very sad. I would have loved to see that little girl stomp all of the competition.

    I don’t remember seeing Rachel Zevita on last night’s Hollywood week Idol. Where is she? I was looking forward to hearing her.

    I picked Rachel Zevita as my absolute FAVORITE of every contestant we saw in the auditions. If it were announced right now that she were making a CD I would pre-order it right now without ever hearing anything more. I thought she was 5 times better than anyone who tried out. So they could have at least told us why she wasn’t in hollywood. I hope we don’t lose track of you Rachel, we want to hear you sing, whether its pop or opera.

    I was a little surprised about the judges reaction to her. I picked her as a sure finalist.

    I would also like to know what happened to her. We didn’t see her get eliminated. Maybe she DID drop out on her own. A shame, though. I believe she was/is quite good. She and Sarah Krueger (who sang “Over The Rainbow”) were the two biggest unpleasant surprises for me. I thought both were great (Sarah’s voice, I believe, was beautiful.)

    Sadly Rachel got eliminated in the 1st week of auditions in Hollywood, she hasnt explained why but said she has theories. I dont think she has a record deal but has a mysapce page and has promised to post music on there as soon as some legal copyright technicalities get sorted out. I think she is fantastic and hope she will answer my frined request dang-it, im all the way in London so cant buy a CD, I hope I can download some stuff…
