Sad news breaking today about former American Idol contestant, Haley Smith.

Haley was on Season 11 of “AI”. Originally from Utah, Haley made it through the auditions in Colorado and lost in the second round in Hollywood. Haley was only 26 and crashed her motorcycle in Maine.

Police there say that she may not have handled a turn well. She was the only one involved in the crash as well.

I loved watching her on American Idol and I am truly sad to see such a wonderful soul taken from us so soon. My prayers are with her family and friends. You can see more on the story here.
