Since her first performance on stage at the early age of 5, Aubrey O'Day has been addicted to entertaining the public. "I lived on the stage, and even at 6, slept behind the seats of the theatre". According to her mother, when Aubrey was 6 she was at a performance of the Nutcracker and started to cry. Her mom asked her during intermission what was wrong, and Aubrey replied, "I am crying because I am sitting in the seats watching, instead of being up on stage!" Aubrey believes that is when she 'officially' realized she loved entertainment.
She pursued her love of performing through the years with various leads in many musical productions, including Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Carmen in Fame, Sandy in Grease, Liesl in The Sound of Music, Tzeitel in The Fiddler on the Roof, Mimi in Rent and the list goes on and on. From her first competition, Aubrey has not only been recognized by judges and audiences alike, but has been remembered and stood out in a crowd as a star. In 1992, she received her first honor, the SCETA Distinguished Theatrical Performance Award and from there moved on to receive several others, including the Desert Theatre League's Outstanding Juvenile Performer in 1995, the Starmania Nationals' Junior Pop Vocalist in 1996, the California Arts' Scholar in Music and in Dance twice in 1997, a nomination for the Desert Theatre League's best supporting actress in 1998, the Desert Theatre League's Best Actress in 1999 and was one of the top five finalists for the 98.7 Be a Star Contest. Aubrey stared in the hit T.V. show "Making the Band 3", and was chosen personally by renowned hip-hop artist and producer Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs and Johnny Wright, for a spot in The Band later named, Danity Kane. "You've been like a captain of the group to me just by leading by example. You've displayed the hunger and perseverance that it takes to be a super star." Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs.
Aubrey was born an only child in San Francisco and from there moved to the Desert at age three, but has always felt like she grew up in LA because she spent most of her time performing and auditioning. From the Desert, she moved to Newport Beach for college and has spent the last four years there. Aubrey has recently moved to the Big Apple and is working with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry focusing on her talent as a singer, dancer and performer. Through Danity Kane, Aubrey has collaborated with various artists and producers – Scott Storch, Rodney Jerkins, Bryan-Michael Cox, Jim Johnson, and Timbaland among others – to tap into her creative side and explore herself musically. Drawing from influences including Diana Ross, Tracy Chapman, A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Michelle Ndegeocello, Arrested Development, Billie Holiday, BB King, The Roots, Tori Amos, Ani Defranco, Dave Mathews Band, Ben Harper and many others, Aubrey has the talent and determination to continue on her road to success.
