HOMETOWN: Mount Prospect, IL
Growing up in Chicago, Hanna started singing at a very young age. It was when she performed an original song at a high school talent show that she realized writing was a huge passion of hers. She attended Columbia College for music and writing. However, near the end of college, a bout of bronchitis turned into nodules on her vocal cords. Her first surgery to remove the nodules was unsuccessful and left her without a voice at all. Unable to speak, she took a job as a restaurant busser. Taking a gamble on a second surgery, Hanna successfully regained her voice and now puts her writing talent to use by writing jingles for television and commercials.
