Singer Desiree Flores is auditioning for American Idol in San Francisco. Due to her father’s line of work – he’s a Major in the Army – Desiree had to move a lot as a child. She says: “Music has gotten me through the rough patches of always moving.” Now the 22-year-old is chasing her dream of becoming a professional singer.
Desiree told Military Times that she hopes her Idol performance encourages other military kids to go after their dreams, "especially military dependents who want to go after a singing/acting/modeling career but feel as if it's almost impossible because of the constant moving to try to chase their dreams, because I went through that as a teen," Flores says.
