MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. --  She may have been the runner-up on season 13 of American Idol, but Jena Irene Asciutto is definitely a winner in her home state of Michigan.

On August 7, the singer stopped at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant as part of the Idols Live Tour.

FOX 17's Jackie Green caught up with the Farmington Hills native about life on the road and what it's like to be back in Michigan.

Jena's single, "We Are One," is currently available on the iTunes store.
