Former Modesto Junior College theater student Lindsay Pearce is an actress and singer who became well known as a runner-up on “The Glee Project,” which gave her a guest starring role on the popular television show “Glee.”

An adopted child, Pearce starred in amateur shows since the age of 13. In early 2011, Pearce was chosen as one of 12 competitors out of 40,000 auditioning for “The Glee Project,” a singing/acting reality show where the winner would receive a seven-episode arc on the third season of “Glee.” She made it to the final four and was chosen as a runner-up, with the producers giving her a two-episode arc.

In the third-season premiere of “Glee,” Pearce was introduced as Harmony, an ambitious and talented singer who leaves Kurt and Rachel completely blown away after watching her sing a mash-up of “Anything Goes” and “Anything You Can Do.” Pearce's second performance in the same season's “Sectionals” episode featured her performing “Buenos Aires” from “Evita.” Her performances were widely acclaimed by critics. Both tracks were released as singles for digital download after the episodes aired. Lindsay also recorded “Do You Hear What I Hear?” for Glee's 2011 Christmas album.

Other acting gigs include roles in “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Recovery Road” and “Drop Dead Diva.”
