JT Podcast – AGT Season 16 Special #9: Storm Large

\By: Jacob Elyachar, jakes-take.com

While America’s Got Talent (AGT): Season 16 is on its Summer Olympics hiatus, the Jake’s Take AGT Season 16 special podcast series continues! This week, I welcomed singer, musician, and actor Storm Large to the podcast.

Storm has spent her entire career performing. She spent the 1990s singing in clubs throughout the San Francisco area. Eventually, she moved to Portland to pursue a career as a chef, but in 2002, a last-minute cancellation at Dante’s changed her career. That last-minute cancellation turned into a Wednesday night engagement where Storm and her band, the Balls, entertained countless audiences.

In 2006, Storm rose to national prominence when she competed on the CBS music competition Rock Star: Supernova. Despite being eliminated one week before the finale, Storm gained an international fan base. She had the opportunity to perform at iconic venues such as the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and Carnegie Hall. Also, Storm sang with a diverse group of recording artists such as k.d. Lang, Rufus Wainwright, Pink Martini, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer George Clinton. 

Recently, Storm Large auditioned for America’s Got Talent: Season 16. Her remarkable rendition of the classic song “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” received four “Yeses” from judges Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum. Also, her performance has been viewed on the show’s official YouTube channel over 3.1 million times. 

In this edition of Jake’s Take’s AGT Season 16 Special, Storm Large revisited her audition and talked about how her experience on Rock Star: Supernova prepared for the NBC talent competition.
