AMERICAN IDOL CONTESTANT AND US AIR FORCE HEARTLAND OF AMERICA BAND VOCALIST ENTERTAINS CHILDREN AT THE SALVATION ARMY OMAHA KROC CENTER ON FRIDAY



A vocalist with the U.S. Air Force Heartland of America Band and American Idol contestant, who advanced to the final audition of American Idol's Hollywood Week, will be entertaining the “troops” at The Salvation Army Kroc Center’s Camp Kroc this week.  Camp Kroc is a summer day camp for children ages 6-12.


Senior Airman Paula Hunt received three “thumbs up” from Idol judges when she tried out for the show on Oct. 14, 2013 at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, earning her ticket to Hollywood Week. 

On Friday, July 25th at The Salvation Army Kroc Center Hunt will get to inspire other kids to take up their microphones and sing when she joins the Camp Kroc campers for a special guest appearance. Senior Airman Hunt will come from 12:30-1:15 pm to speak about her experience on American Idol, being in the Air Force, and, time permitting, perform with members of the United States Air Force Heartland of America Band.  Hunt, a Bellevue native and graduate of Bellevue West High School, has served as a member of the Air Force Heartland of America Band since August 2011. She is currently a journeyman vocalist for the band's rock ensemble, Raptor.
