American Idol 2016: Gianna Isabella ‘I Still Believe’ [VIDEO]

American Idol 2016 contestant Gianna Isabella is following in mom Brenda K. Starr‘s footsteps and hoping to make her own mark on the music industry. Gianna is ready to step out and be a star on her own, but it’s not easy for her mom to let her go, as we see during her showcase solo rehearsal.

For the showcase solo song, Gianna chose to do her mom’s hit single “I Still Believe” for the American Idol judges. Her ‘momager’ Brenda, apparently has a lot to say about her daughter’s rehearsal, but musical director Rickey Minor isn’t so happy about that. He tells mom and daughter that they need to let him do his job, and Brenda needs to step back. It all worked out in the end though, as Gianna nailed her solo and proved to the judges she can shine on her own!
