That led Testone to start lessons and, at 13, she became the youngest student New York City vocal coach Judy Hages had ever accepted. Elise says that her time with Hages was monumental. “We would record all the lessons,” says Testone. “I noticed a huge change in my voice, and in a short time, I just understood it.”
Now living in Charleston, Elise says she keeps busy with three jobs: working at a pet store during the mornings, teaching vocal students in her cubicle-sized mini-studio at Music Unlimited in Mt. Pleasant in the afternoons, and singing in local pubs and restaurants at night as the lead singer of Elise Testone and the Freeloaders.
Elise has a degree in Music and Vocal Performance from Coastal Carolina University.
Elise was in the bottom three during the voting March 15. She was declared safe though, and the bottom two remained Erika Van Pelt, and Shannon Magrane (who was eventually eliminated).
Elise is now in the Idol Top 10, and will be going on the Idol Summer Tour!
