Eleisha Miller was a singer and pianist act from Season 4 of America's Got Talent. She was eliminated in the Quarterfinals.

Background

Eleisha Miller is from Amarillo, Texas. Originally born in San Antonio, she considers herself a Texan through and through. From an early age (1 year) Eleisha has been singing and making up songs. By age 4 (2004), she started playing the piano and taking Suzuki piano lessons. By age 6 (2006),she started sight reading music and learning piano theory, timing, and personal discipline in practice. Her mother is a classical pianist and piano teacher and her father plays piano and guitar by ear. She loves music with a passion and sings, dances, and plays on stage with the musical rhythm that beats within her.

To facilitate practices and local shows, Eleisha began homeschooling at age 7 (2nd grade). Eleisha’s busy schedule outside of shows typically includes vocal lessons, 3 acting/coaching classes, and various dance classes (not to mention piano and guitar lessons). Her schedule only changes if she realizes she is not enjoying the experience in exchange for the time she gives. Her theater accomplishments  include musical productions she has been in: Bearly a Bear (Bear Cub), A Christmas Carol (Anderson Kid), Seussical the Musical (principal character Jo Jo), Annie (Molly), and The Music Man(Ensemble). She has also appeared in 2 plays: The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (Gladys Herdman) and The Little Princess (Student). Whether the audience is large or small Eleisha feels “at home” on the stage.

Eleisha made her TV debut on a local station at age 6 when she won the chance to appear as a weather forecaster on a “Kids Cast” program. It was at this point she knew she truly loved to entertain and make people laugh. Her insatiable desire to search out the next level led her to auditions in Houston, Texas for America's Got Talent.

If she won a million dollars, she would take a trip to Hawaii with her family.
