Alisabeth Von Presley
A rocker raised on a well balanced diet of Michael Jackson, Pat Benatar, and a plateful of glitter. This Iowa girl has left a memorable impact on stages from Los Angeles to New York — with stops at “American Idol” and “Cabaret In The Courtyard” in between. Touring on the heels of her pop/rock album “Diamonds In The Blackout” – this Iowa native performs with a flair for the dynamic and theatrical; she’s most easily described — can she be easily described? — as a “passionate performance roller-coaster tied up in pleather pants and sequin stilettos.” Or as one musical critic wrote, “when Alisabeth sings, the neon rainbow melts into a swirling puddle.”
Born in the small town of Marion, Iowa, Alisabeth’s musical career began when she won the blue ribbon at 9 years old in a local talent show. More than a decade later, Alisabeth would be wowing judges in another “talent show” of sorts — drawing the attention of judges Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban on American Idol: Season 12, which saw her advance to the Hollywood Round.
