Biography

“I have always tried to take the road less traveled,” says new emerging pop artist, Joanna Martino. “Above all, I just want to stand behind the cross and disappear in the shadow of His glory.”

With an explosive passion for music, and a humble maturity that surpasses her years, this
19- year -old is a dose of fresh fire discovered as she advanced through over four rounds of auditions for the second season of Fox’s hit series “American Idol.” At the age of 16, Joanna was one of the youngest competing, yet continually making the cut for judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson in Los Angeles. “I was mixed in with people who had actually gone to school to study music, and there I was, just receiving my driver’s license!”
With thousands auditioning, Joanna made it to the final 80 contestants. With the confidence of industry veterans under her belt, her career in music was imminent.

Coming from a long line of pastors, Joanna grew up on a farm in Michigan as one of five children in a close-knit Italian family. “My family has always encouraged me to pursue my dreams; they have supported me and prayed for me through this entire journey.”
Graduating fifth in her class, Joanna knows first hand the pressures that teens face today in a culture of empty promises. “Your peers are changing so much at that age, you have to start making your own decisions to determine who you really want to be, what you want to stand for,” says Joanna. “I came to a point where I said ‘Here’s my life Lord, I don’t know what you’re going to do with it, but here I am.’ ” With a reverent surrender and a love for music, Joanna moved to Music City after high school and headed straight into the studio.
