ESTERO, FL (July 13, 2017) – The 2017 Miromar Has Talent winner, Ryleigh Plank of Fort Myers, has been chosen to audition for the new American Idol competition this fall with Katy Perry. The 16-year-old singer beat out several others during the three week-long talent competition at Miromar Outlets and was the grand prize winner of a $500 Miromar Outlets gift card.

Returning Miromar has Talent judge, Suzi Hosfeld, president of Envy Models & Talent, surprised Plank with the opportunity to audition.

“Instead of standing in line with thousands of hopefuls, Ryleigh will be able to bypass the open auditions and possibly become a contestant for the 2017-18 American Idol season,” Hosfeld said. “The moment I heard her sing I knew she was special.”

Plank will travel to Miami for her audition later this summer. Good luck, Ryleigh!
