Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.--  Tri-Citians sang their hearts out Saturday, hoping to be the next American Idol.  Legacy Ford in Pasco held auditions, and one finalist won a trip to the Denver auditions for the national TV show.

26-year-old Jacquelynne Artis was crowned the winner.  She was born and raised in the tri-Cities, sings at her church, and comes from a family of singers.  Artis says, "I am a single mom that's always had the dream of becoming a singer.  So, I came down here with just the chance of trying to get somewhere."

She will be in the mile high city this Tuesday for auditions.
