Who is Sarah Goldberg?
Sarah was born in New York City, USA, in 1986 – her exact date of birth hasn’t been disclosed, but her zodiac sign is believed to be Aries, and she holds American nationality. She’s only known for having competed in the sixth season of the reality musical game-show “American Idol”, created by Simon Fuller, and which stars Ryan Seacrest, Mark Thompson and Randy Jackson. Each season follows 12 people competing to become the best singer, has been airing since 2002 and has won 64 awards, including nine Primetime Emmys, while it’s been nominated for 157 other awards.
Sarah’s not to be mistaken for the Canadian actress Sarah Goldberg, who’s appeared in more than 20 movies and TV series, and is probably still known best for her portrayal of a supporting character in the critically acclaimed 2012 action movie “The Dark Knight Rises”.
Early life and education
Sarah was raised in New York City by her parents, about whom not a lot is known as she respects their privacy; it’s believed that her father was a factory worker, and her mother a cashier at a local supermarket. Because Sarah hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of her fans believe her to be an only child.
She studied at Horace Mann High School in New York City, and was interested in a couple of activities during her four years there, including playing sports with her peers, and practicing dancing and acting.
Upon matriculating in 2004, Sarah enrolled at Williams College; she eventually transferred to Columbia University in the City of New York, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in women and gender studies in 2008.
In 2015, she enrolled at City University of New York’s Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy, from which she graduated with a Master’s degree in community health and social sciences in 2018.
Sarah in “American Idol”
It was in 2007 that Sarah tried competing in “American Idol”, and could’ve been seen in the episode “Auditions: New York”.
She chose to sing Selena’s song “Dreaming of You”, and the judges afterwards asked her if she believed that she was a good singer; when she responded that she didn’t, they wondered if she had only come to the show for fame. Sarah explained that even though she didn’t perform well, that vocal coaches and judges could together teach her to sing; the idea was quickly shot down, and Sarah was eliminated from the competition.
Although Sarah doesn’t have her own YouTube channel, many videos featuring her have been uploaded onto the network by other people, and these have been watched many times. We’re going to mention three of the most popular amongst these, which’ve helped Sarah build herself a fanbase on the internet.

Sarah’s third most popular YouTube video “Seriously! Craziest Audition Ever on American Idol | Idols Global”, has been viewed nearly 350,000 times since 6 February 2019, and is the original video of her performance in “American Idol”.

She spent only a year there, and in June 2009, Sarah joined Graham Windham as a community outreach coordinator, a job which she then held for five years.
In May 2012, Sarah began working at Columbia University in the City of New York as the dodge fitness center supervisor, and five months later, she was promoted to information specialist.
From July 2014 to June 2015, Sarah worked at The Fund for Public Health in New York, Inc. as a project assistant.
