Talent show star headlines in Britain for the first time
Former American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart is heading to the UK for her debut headlining British tour, including a date at Birmingham Glee Club on September 19.

The 25-year-old from the Chicago suburb of Wheeling finished third in the talent show in 2011. Her debut album, Listen Up!, was released in 2012, followed by Better last year. Her single, Can't Help Falling In Love With You, sold more than 200,000 copies, amassed 19 million Spotify streams and reached number one on Spotify's Global viral chart.

Haley was born into a world of music. Singing at the young age of 7, she would take to the stage alongside her parents, Patti Miller-Reinhart and Harry Reinhart, and their band, Midnight. Thanks to her parents' diverse musical taste, she became heavily influenced by a wide variety of genres, including rock 'n' roll, funk, pop, jazz, and the blues.

With the Wheeling High School jazz band, she toured Europe in 2009, performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival and Umbria Jazz Festival. Haley continued to study jazz in college, forming several bands and side collaborations.

Since American Idol, she has seen her songs featured in a number of TV and film projects, including James Cameron's HBO documentary series Years of Living Dangerously, a recent Chase Bank commercial and the film Step Up Revolution.

There have been performances at festivals, including Lollapalooza and the New Orleans Jazz Fest. She has also collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Tony Bennett, Slash, David Foster, and Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz.

Last year Haley premiered cover songs with YouTube sensation Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox which have amassed over 50 million video views to date. These feature versions of Tove Lo's Habits and Radiohead's Creep.

In addition to singing, Haley made her voiceover debut in 2015 as a little boy named Bill in the Netflix animated series F Is for Family.
