Karen traveled all the way from New York to Los Angeles after earning an opportunity to audition in front of the judges due to an outstanding My Space audition. After being a consistent good performer through each round Karen earned a spot in the Top 24. Check out her audition that earned her a Top 24 spot [here]. Karen auditioned because it was the first time they had My Space auditions. She started singing at a young age. This bi-lingual singer wants to be the first Hispanic-American winner. She is inspired by her mother because she also wanted to be a singer growing up but chose another path. Her favorite all-time performer is of course Selena Quintanilla-PĂ©rez and Beyonce. Karen is no stranger to singing on television because she was also a contestant on "Objetivo Fama," a reality singing competition in Puerto Rico. Check out two of her performances for [El Hombre Que Yo Amo] by Myriam Hernandez and [Sola Otra Vez] sung both by Celine Dio nand Lara Fabian. One interesting thing about Karen is that she is a Laguardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts '07 alumni along with contestants Pia Toscano ('06) and Rachel Zevita ('05).
