Singer Sarah Burgess from Pittsburgh/USA

To move an audience. That's the highest praise given to any artist. And Sarah Burgess (born July 14, 1987) is definitely moving her audience.

Sassy, freaky, self confident, powerful and unique would describe Sarah best - besides her mutability, outstanding live voice and stage presence.

Sarah's first stage experience was at the age of six and involved performances in the church. From then on she never stopped singing and worked hard for her dream becoming a singer.

Since 2007 known in the US by many as the Season 6 American Idol auditioner whose father didn't know she had snuck out to New York, Sarah Burgess was one of 173 (out of 120,000 total auditioners) awarded Idol's Golden Ticket to Hollywood. In the months that followed, Burgess was interviewed on almost 100 radio and TV stations to relate her resonant story .

Over 10 millions plays on MySpace, Chris Daughtry opening act (live audience of 80,000 people), school-tours in the US and Switzerland (65 schools in 3 weeks) and a top 10 single in the US (secondary market) are just a few references .

September 2009: the Swiss company Solymar Music, which specializes in developing and globally promoting newcomer artists, penned an exclusive production deal with Sarah. This all head over heels and unexpected as she was booked for a 3-week-school tour in Switzerland only. "After the first performance in front of the teenager we simply had to sign her", Oliver Meyer from Solymar Music. "She was like a tornado and the impact on the teens was incredible".

Have a look at some of the hundreds of pictures with teenagers on the Swiss tour:
