Later in 2019 Leah won a local talent contest called “Vernon Has Talent” with this keyboard performance of “Always Remember Us This Way (A Star Is Born)” by Lady Gaga.


In 2017, Leah and her sister Lexa secured themselves a spot among local DeRidder favorites in their performance of “Defying Gravity” at Impromptu Players.

In 2013, Leah was a contestant in the Nashville Country Showdown and was invited as a special guest to entertain at the state finals of the Louisiana Country Showdown. Here is a clip of Leah singing at the event: Leah Thompson singing at Country Showdown.

Leah is the 2012 winner of Artbreak Idol, a talent contest held in northwest Louisiana that works just like the popular television show. The contestants are chosen through auditions and then eliminated throughout several rounds. Celebrity judge, Jason Castro, mentioned that Leah was his “favorite so far” in the semi-finals round of Artbreak Idol. Here is a clip of Leah at the semi-finals and Jason Castro’s comment afterwards: Leah Thompson at Artbreak Idol

In 2009 Leah was cast as Annie in Peter Pan Player’s production of “Annie”. The playhouse enjoyed seven sell-out shows and added an eighth show which also sold out. While the show was in production Leah acted as a character host to a little girl’s birthday party. It was a rewarding moment for Leah because the little girl could not believe that the “real Annie” had actually come to her birthday party!

While Leah is at home she can be found writing music, playing the piano, picking her guitar and ukulele, planning upcoming shows, posting videos for her YouTube fans, studying scripts for upcoming films, or helping clean the house (only because her mama said so). Here is one of Leah’s original songs called “Here Comes The Rain” which was published in 2016.

Your voice pitch , is spot on !! perfect pitch is so important. Your stage presence and natural ease and happiness is great . You’re greatly gifted as a singer. Don’t let the world corrupt you. hold fast to your values. I’m just really impressed by your amazing natural talent. I’m Shane, and i record and produce alot of songs. Your singing style is a pleasure to hear. In your performance of ‘Slow me Down’ on youtube, that’s really excellent how you switch to the soft , falcetto type vocal for that part in the song. Excellently done. gee, i could just rave on and on . lol. take care.
