Hannah Mrozak (Muh-row-zak) is from a small town just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she grew up singing. Her first professional performance was at age 8, when she was asked to sing the National Anthem for the pro-hockey team, Milwaukee Admirals, followed by more requests for young Hannah to sing the anthem, including baseball' s Milwaukee Brewers. Hannah knew at a young age that music would be an important part of her life and she would do anything to make it a priority.
Hannah has been honing her skills ever since. Professional vocal coaching at an early age gave Hannah exposure to many styles of musical performance, including Broadway, show tunes, opera, jazz, and blues. Her smoky soulful vocals and pop/R&B style will leave you wanting more and when on the stage she is a force to be reckoned with. " I want to connect with each and everyone who comes to see me perform. I hope to inspire and make music that people can relate to."
Nominated 2 years in a row, Hannah was presented with the award for the State of Wisconsin's WAMI Rising Star of the year in 2015. In December 2011 she won Milwaukee’s Got Talent, at Milwaukee’s Winterfest and in May 2013 she was a MAMA (Madison Area Music Association) “first chair” award recipient.
In June 2014, Hannah auditioned and was chosen to be a contestant on American Idol, making it through to the Hollywood rounds. She was declared by the Season XIV judges to be one of the 38 most memorable auditions. She advanced to the top 48 and performed at the Legendary House of Blues in Los Angeles, CA. Judge Jennifer Lopez told her that she "stands out" and "has one of the best voices here".
September 2017, Hannah performed the song "Starving" by Hailee Steinfeld for her blind audition for the TV show "The Voice", Season 13. She had 3 chair turns, Adam Levine, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton. Hannah chose team Adam and advanced to the battle round which she won, and then advanced to the Knockout Round, singing "Love on the Brain" by Rhianna. She was stolen by team Jennifer and moved onto the Playoff Rounds and the top 20. She sang "Learn to Let Go" by Keisha and was eliminated from the show just before the live shows. Hannah is grateful for her time on the show and all the opportunities it has provided for her.
Hannah hopes to use her platform "The Voice" has given her to bring awareness to the topic of mental health and suicide prevention. This is a very personal mission for Hannah and she is very involved with a local organization Life of Hope that provides support programs, awareness and education for suicide attempt-aversion and loss prevention. Hannah has spoken at several events and shared her story of personal loss. She hopes to help end the stigma of mental health and suicide. "I just want to let those that are suffering know that they are not alone and that there is always someone to talk to who cares. I care!"
Let Hannah take you on a musical journey!
