Jessica Ann Sierra (born November 11, 1985) is an American singer and was the tenth-place finalist on the fourth season of American Idol. She was the third finalist eliminated, on March 30, 2005. Sierra released her single Enough in October 2010, from her upcoming debut album Rebound due out sometime in 2011, after being pushed back in December 2010.
Sierra was a contestant on Star Search before auditioning for American Idol. She first auditioned for Idol in the second season, but was rejected.
Sierra auditioned in Orlando for the fourth season of American Idol. She was eliminated on March 30, during 1990s music week after she sang LeAnn Rimes’ “On the Side of Angels”, surprising some fans since Simon Cowell had previously stated that she was one of the strongest female vocalists in the competition.
After American Idol, Jessica Sierra performed all over the world. She sang at many concerts and private events, including a private event in Kazakhstan. Jessica did concerts for charities such as the Special Olympics, and performed at numerous corporate events including shows sponsored by Kelloggs and Edy’s Ice Cream. In July 2006 Jessica visited U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Kuwait, performing six shows for an Independence Day celebration including a July 4 show in Baghdad.
A 59-year-old man from California was arrested on January 17, 2006 at the home of Sierra’s grandmother. Tampa police reported that Daniel Young left at least 40 voice mail messages telling Sierra that he loved her and was willing to go to jail for her.
