Amber Holcomb of Houston first auditioned for American Idol last season. She made it all the way to Las Vegas before being cut.

This year, the 18-year-old graduate of Dekaney High School has had a makeover and now she is in Idol’s Top 10.

Amber’s mom, Laura Holcomb says her daughter has been singing since she was a little girl. She’s already graced a lot of stages including Showtime at the Apollo Theater.

Laura Holcomb says she hasn’t been able to talk to Amber for the past week or so because she is so busy getting ready for the competition. So what’s a mom to do?
