Ava Mendoza, a true songbird at heart, has always loved singing from the minute she could speak. Her love and passion for singing and performing truly blossomed last year after her first role in a youth theatre group, in the musical, The Lion King, Jr. One of her favorite primary roles in musical theatre was as Saffron in the musical, The Jungle Book. Additionally, she has performed at local talent competitions as a solo singer. A semi-finalist for Chula Vista Got Talent, and a finalist at the Mabuhay Festival 2017, are just a couple of her accomplishments as a solo singer. Ava continues to perform locally showcasing her dynamic voice ranging from music that covers Broadway to current popular music. Her range of musical interests keep her singing nonstop whether at home or on stage. She truly just has a passion for singing! Ava is extremely excited and thankful to have the opportunity to showcase her voice in this amazing talent search, the Celebration of Music.
