Thomas’s music career began at the young age of four when she sang with her parents’ ministry for the homeless on the streets of downtown Fort Worth, Texas. By age nine, Andrea was singing weekly on her grandfather’s TV music show, “Texas Country Gospel,” as well as in her local church choir. After moving to Nashville with her family later down the road, Thomas studied music business at Belmont and graduated in 2009.

Since her graduation, Thomas has been most recognized for her work as a back-up singer for Carrie Underwood. To view Thomas’s blind audition and read more about her experience, check out this article in The Tennessean.
