Locke quickly rose to fame after becoming the second runner-up on Season Two of AMERICAN IDOL. After performing on the IDOL tour, she released her Curb Records debut album "One Love," which features the No. 1 Billboard Single Sales hit "8th World Wonder." Locke has scored seven Top 10 Adult Contemporary hits in almost four years � more than any artist in that time span. Remixes of her songs "Change" and "Band of Gold" hit No. 1 on the Billboard Club charts, marking seven times for Locke atop a Billboard chart. Her current album, "Based on a True Story," includes those hits plus her latest single, "Fall."

Locke has lent her time and talents to various charities including the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, YouthAIDS, Camp Heartland, the Human Rights Campaign, Help Is On The Way (AIDS), GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), Leeza�s Place (Alzheimer�s) and What A Pair/Revlon/UCLA (Breast Cancer).
