Walnut High Grad Takes on “American Idol”
Watch out for Adanna Duru!


WALNUT, CA—Watch out for 2014 Walnut High School graduate Adanna Duru when “American Idol” kicks off this week.

The legendary singing competition opens Season 14 on Wednesday at 8 p.m. on FOX.

Duru, age 18, threw her hat in the ring during the show’s San Francisco auditions.

The savvy-teen has been gracing stages for years.

During her sophomore year at age 15, Duru competed during “The Voice” Season 3 with Team Adam.

Since then, Duru has been steadily growing her career performing and writing songs for platinum selling recording artists under Universal Records.

She has recorded a pair of singles – “C.E.O.” and “Amplify” and is currently recording her debut album. You can check out her eHHmusic videos on YouTube.

Duru also impressed Walnut Valley staff members with her performance of “Valerie” at the annual back-to-school event in 2013. 

The lively solo earned a standing ovation from hundreds of educators and praise from Superintendent Dr. Robert Taylor.

Walnut Valley wishes Adanna Duru the best of luck during “American Idol” Season 14!
