Brooke White is truly a jill of all trades. Upon launching her musical career on Season 7 of American Idol, the Arizona born-and-bred and now California-based artist has constantly been on the move, keeping herself busy by dabbling into various creative outlets—singing, songwriting, acting, painting, blogging, and even hosting an online web-series.
