Australia Idol finalist Lisa Mitchell will hit the stage tomorrow night as a special guest of fellow Idol competitor Raechel Lee, when the two begin a special tour starting in Parkes.

Mitchell has earned huge accolades from Lee, who praised the teenager as "the coolest little songwriter chick we know".

"She made it to the Top 5 and blew the whole of Australia away with her incredibly honest voice & amazing songs," Parkes-based Lee said.

" Lisa and I were very close during the competition and we always said that once it was over we'd do some shows together so if you wanna catch her on her first tour since leaving Idol, this is the time to do it!"

Since Idol, Mitchell has perfomed live via the internet and MySpace.

In an interview last month, she said is happily moving on in her own direction and at her own pace, since the Idol start.

You can see Mitchell and The Lees performing together tomorrow night at the Coachman Hotel, Parkes; Friday 13th April at a Youth Event in the Parkes Leagues Club (Upstairs Auditorium) and on Saturday night, April 14 at the Services & Citizens Club, Canowindra.
