Western Reserve grad striving to appear on 'American Idol'

When 2010 Western Reserve graduate Alicia Stevens was 5, she wrote a song titled "I Love My Grandma." She strummed on a guitar as she sang.

Today, nearly 15 years later, Stevens is vying to be an idol herself -- an American Idol.

On July 12, Stevens will try out in Pittsburgh for the right to appear on American Idol -- the No. 1 television show of the 2010-11 season. Stevens will face plenty of competition -- the daughter of Charlene Breedlove said she heard she will compete against about 100,000 other American Idol hopefuls for one of the available slots.

"I'm pretty confident, I think can make it," she said. She added she's been practicing for two to three hours a day.
