Kristi Krause, a 17-year-old 4S Ranch resident and senior at Rancho Bernardo High School, appeared on Fox Television’s American Idol Wednesday night, advancing to Hollywood.

Krause, the daughter of Bob and Deanna Krause, auditioned in San Francisco (actually taped in November) and sang the Etta James hit “At Last” for judges Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.

The highly-rated TV show is shown locally each week on San Diego’s KSWB Fox 5.
