American Idol alum Jessica Meuse will kick off the CityFest Main Stage at 2:00 PM on Saturday, June 3.
Hailing from Slapout, AL, Jessica has been a natural performer, wowing audiences since the age of 10. At 20, she won the state-wide artist showcase, Stars of Alabama, and in 2013 was part of the Vans Warped Tour. Meuse’s tenure on American Idol led to her becoming the first person in the history of the hit series to perform her own composition, “Blue-eyed Lie,” during the finals. “Jessica pulled together a powerful performance of her original song,” commented Ryan Seacrest.
Following the show, Meuse joined the American Idols LIVE! Tour, performing in 40+ cities around the United States and Canada. Never one to stop writing, she penned and released two singles, “Done,” and “Rio Grande,” while continuing to expand her dedicated following (a large group of fans who have affectionately self-dubbed themselves the “Muse Mafia”).
