A star may have been born from here in the east after her performance on American Idol
Kinston native Ashlee Altise made it through auditions and onto Hollywood.
She most recently worked at the Goody's store in Vernon Park Mall. Co-workers tell us she's always been a joy to work with-- and while they were surprised to see her on TV-- they were not surprised to see her do so well. They've heard Altise belting it out a few times in their store.
Co-workers say they don't know how far Altise made it yet-- they haven't been able to get in touch with her.
