Reinhart grew up in Chicagoland, born into a world of music. Singing at the young age of 7, she began to take the stage alongside her parents and their band of 30 years: Midnight. Thanks to her parents’ diverse musical taste, Reinhart became heavily influenced by a wide variety of genres, including rock ’n’ roll, funk, pop, jazz, and the blues. She hit the big stage with the Wheeling High School jazz band, which toured across Europe in 2009, performing at both the Montreux Jazz Festival and Umbria Jazz Festival. Reinhart continued to study jazz in college, forming several bands and side collaborations. In 2011, she competed on Season 10 of landmark TV singing competition series American Idol, eventually finishing in third place.
Since then, she has seen her songs featured in a variety of other 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. Reinhart has built up a strong and devoted fanbase of “Haliens” thanks to live performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza and the New Orleans Jazz Fest. She has also collaborated live with some of the biggest names in the business, including Tony Bennett, Slash, David Foster, and Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. In 2015, Reinhart premiered cover songs with YouTube sensation Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox which have amassed over 100 million video views to date.
In addition to singing, Reinhart made her voiceover debut in 2015 as a little boy named Bill in the Netflix original animated series F Is for Family, produced by Bill Burr, Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsly, and Michael Price. The show has recently been picked up for a second season which will premiere in 2017.
