Singing is Ally Bagenstos passion.
"I've always wanted to grow up to be a country singer," said Ally Bagenstos.
The 11-year-old really got passionate about singing a couple years ago when she started singing karaoke, but her parents said she's always loved to sing.
"When she was little she'd sing her ABCs in harmony, and we knew early on she had a talent," said Jenny Bagenstos.
Ally now takes vocal lessons and guitar lessons and has performed at various events and venues pursuing her dream of one day making it big in the music industry.
"If it's what she wants, it's what we want for her. but that's her only plan, so that kind of scares me a bit," said Jenny Bagenstos.
Ally performed at Jameson's in Waterloo before heading to Tennessee to tape a television show called "Nashville Spotlight." She sent in a sample of her singing and got accepted to the show, but it's not a competition. It's a show helping pre-teens and teens learn more about the music industry.
"It's just fun. I love to do it," said Ally Bagenstos.
Ally's parents want her to pursue her dream, but they also said it's important for her to stay humble and use her voice to give back.
The young singer said she loves performing, and she plans to do everything she can to make singing her career.
Her taping for "Nashville Spotlight" is set for June 8th. The show only airs on a cable channel in Nashville, but you can follow Ally on her blog by clicking here.
