American Idol contender wins hearts at Metcalf Hall

Fresh from her success as the 13th runner-up in last season’s American Idol contest, Boston College freshman Ayla Brown stepped onto the stage at Metcalf Hall on September 22 to pluck the heartstrings of a small but passionate crowd of followers. The six-foot-tall Wrentham native, who plays for BC’s women’s basketball team, appeared to have no qualms about singing her heart out to the rival BU crowd. 

Angelica Allen (COM’08), 2004 winner of Boston University’s own Terrier Idol talent event, opened for Brown. Click here to watch a video of the performances and the fans who came to cheer on their idol.
