OSHKOSH, Wis. (WBAY)- If you're a fan of the show "American Idol" which airs right here on WBAY-TV, you might catch an Oshkosh teenager competing in an upcoming episode. At just 17 years old, Franki Moscato has a big dream and a passion for singing that last fall caught the attention of producers for the show "American Idol."
"Idol flew me to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, to audition with some really talented contestants and in front of Katy Perry, Lionel Ritchie, and Luke Bryan, and today I can finally announce that I did get the gold ticket, so we'll be going to Hollywood and see where that takes us," said Moscato.
While Moscato is expected to appear in upcoming episodes, she's not allowed to reveal much about the competition or even when specifically she might be on. However, she did tell Action 2 News, the song she sings is Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang." She added, "It's always been my passion to sing, and I hope to do everything I can to inspire others, and hopefully that's through my music and through my words, and I feel like this 'American Idol' experience is a great opportunity to do that." For now she's using the platform locally to promote her very own "Be Kind" campaign.
"It really means a lot to me to raise awareness to be kind, and I'm all about trying to stop suicide and stop bullying, and it's great to see everybody get together and wear my 'Be Kind' T-shirts, and I hope I can inspire my community," Moscato said,
If you would like to see Moscato perform, she's singing on Saturday at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center as part of the Wildwood Film Festival.

There will be a community conversation about human trafficking as part of the Wildwood Film Festival.
Moderator Paul Evansen says during the festival they’ll show three locally-made short films. He says they show human trafficking from three different perspectives. He says it’s from the point of view of the victim, their friend, and the perpetrator. He says it was meant to be a resource at schools to raise awareness.
Evansen says the three shorts come together to make a film called “Innocence Sold”.
The community conversation is from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. A scheduled of the festival and tickets can be found on the Wildwood Film Festival website.
