    Carrie's Backup Singer Nikki Leonti

    Carrie's prior backup singer Nikki Leonti, her daughter (born when she was an 18 year old Christian singer for which she was shunned by the industry) and her husband of a couple of years have formed a band called the EDGAR FAMILY BAND. They made it thru to the semifinals last night on America's Got Talent.

    Their audition song was I'll Stand By You:

    I think it was August/September 2006 to December 2007.
    Then Jamie took over for the CR tour.

    Wow. They sound fantastic together!

    I wish there are videos that include judges' comments as well. Would love to hear what they said.

    Someone on twitter asked her about being with Carrie. This was right after her first appearance on AGT. She said her time with Carrie was one of the happiest times of her life!!

    Her daughter's voice is fanstatic too. All 3 of them sound great individually and together!!

    Would love love to see her bounce back into the business together with her family after such a setback back then. God always has a mysterious way of timing things.

    Why did Nikki leave as Carrie's backup singer? Anyone knows? I am just curious, that's all. I don't follow these news closely =)

    Don't know but I remember several Carrie fans complaining of her over singing or singing too loud over Carrie. Think most seem to prefer Jamie's background vocals better when she became Carrie's backup singer.

    She sang back up for Carrie's 2007 Grammy performance of Desperado too - I thought she was very good

    I seemed to remember something about she was moving to CA to pursue her own career.
