After taking time off to finish school, the beautiful and talented Antonella Barba is back and poised for a successful future.
Barba released first major single, “Jersey Girl,” in May 2010. Antonella co-wrote the summer anthem to show her true Jersey girl roots. The song gives props to current Jersey shore clubs, beaches, people, hobbies, and hangouts, all while maintaining a catchy pop vibe and appeal. “Jersey Girl” was co-written and produced by Dan MacKenzie, who has penned songs for Joss Stone, Martin Sexton, and others. It was featured on a September 2010 episode of Style Network’s hit series, Jerseylicious.
Antonella was first seen on television in January 2007 during the 6th season of FOX’s smash hit, American Idol. With her smooth voice and gorgeous looks, Barba took center stage, taking advantage of the publicity surrounding her, and making it all the way to the Top 16 of the famed music competition series.
In addition to her music, Antonella is also pursuing a career in television, film, and Broadway.
Upon her exit from American Idol, Barba has made numerous television appearances; including Fox’s Good Day NY, The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet, Access Hollywood, and TV Guide’s Idol Stars: Where are they Now?
Antonella’s talents have allowed her to perform at interesting locations and events around the world, including for the NY Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Barba also sang the National Anthem at the Wired Safety Summit in Washington, DC.
In March of 2008, Antonella became the spokesperson for ElectionMall’s Voter Space. On election night, she hosted ElectionMall’s Non-Partisan Young Voters Party in Washington, DC.
Antonella graduated from The Catholic University of America with a BS in Architecture in 2008. In her spare time she enjoys dancing, violin, piano, drawing, and teaching young aspiring singers and musicians.
With loads of talent, beauty, and intelligence, it should be an exciting year for the strong willed Barba.
