WARNER ROBINS, GA (WALB) - A middle Georgia native with ties to south Georgia is on the way to stardom, one song at a time.
Kiandra Richardson is a singer from Warner Robins. She's currently a part of a play where she plays the role of the legendary Whitney Houston.
Before landing the role she had a golden ticket to Hollywood during the final season of American Idol, but a phone call from gospel singer BeBe Winans changed her path.
"And BeBe said you cannot go to Idol you have to come and do this show. I see something in you that I saw in Whitney Houston and I need you to do this show," said Richardson.
The play "Born This Way" is about the life of BeBe Winans.
