Zionsville teen passes American Idol audition


Phillips is dedicated to music beyond “American Idol.”

She said she writes her own songs and is working on a CD that should be ready by the end of January.

The CD contains a song written by Phillips, “When the Answers Won’t Come,” and the Bon Jovi song “You Give Love a Bad Name,” she said.

Estep said Phillips is taking three music classes in high school, and spends on average five to eight hours a day working on music.

Phillips said even if she doesn’t advance in “American Idol,” it was still a great experience.

“It was so worthwhile,” she said. “It definitely opened my eyes to the music business. I’ve grown so much as a performer from the experience.”
