Thia Megia (born Thialorei Lising Megia; January 30, 1995) is an American singer from Mountain House, San Joaquin County, California. Megia finished in the top 11 of the tenth season of American IdolMegia was born in Hayward, California, to Cynthia and Loreto Megia. Her parents, originally from AngelesPampangaPhilippines, emigrated to the United States in 1968 and changed their name from Mejia to Megia. She attended Eden Gardens Elementary School in Hayward through the sixth grade, but was cyber-schooled online at California Virtual Academy, when the family moved to Mountain House, California.

Prior to Idol, however, Megia was best known for her appearance on the fourth season of America's Got Talent in 2009. She made it to the quarterfinals, but was cut in the Top 40 round. That same year, she was invited to sing at the David Foster and Friends concert in California. She is the first America's Got Talent contestant to advance to voting rounds on American Idol. In 2014, She hired recording producer John Dote' in Las Vegas to produce the two singles below which eventually got her signed to Disney with a brand new soundtrack. Meanwhile, Dote' was approached by America's Got Talent director Eric Estrada to produce his Las Vegas talents for the audition held at The Linq Hotel in Las Vegas, but his artist never made it to the show. Megia did and was a "show stopper" receiving a standing ovation not only to a live audience, but to millions watching all over the globe says John Dote'. Yet the compass meter points to this record producer who draws even larger than Megia to his arsenal like a magnet.
