Detect a hint of sadness in Kree Harrison's soulful voice and beautiful smile?  Here's the story.  Kree Harrison is the third of four children. When she was 12 years old, she lost her father in an airplane crash.  Her Mom passed away in a car accident just a few years later. In a video diary from ‘American Idol,’ Harrison says she and her siblings got through the hard times together. “My sister’s taught me a lot about being a mom, and an amazing woman. My brothers are such strong men,” she shares.

Even if she doesn't take the title, you can't help but look up to her for overcoming such devastation and not losing sight of her dream.  For that, she's already an American Idol.
