Stormi Bree Henley (born December 6, 1990) is an American beauty queen, model and singer best known for her Miss Teen USA 2009 title.

Early life[edit]

Henley is the daughter of Kip & Sissi Henley and sister of Darbi Henley.[1] Her father was the winner of The Golf Channel's The Big Break II reality television competition.[2] She is a 2009 graduate of Cumberland County High School and represented her school at regional golf competitions.[3]

Career[edit]

Miss Teen USA[edit]

Henley won the Miss Tennessee Teen USA 2009 title on October 5, 2008 after competing in the pageant for the first time.[4]

In July 2009, Henley represented Tennessee in the Miss Teen USA 2009 pageant held in Atlantis Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas, the second Miss Teen USA pageant held outside the United States. This was the first internationally web-cast Miss Teen USA pageant, after the television contract ended with the 2007 event.[5] In the final competition on July 31, 2009, Henley was crowned Miss Teen USA 2009 by outgoing titleholder Stevi Perry. She was the second teen from Tennessee to win Miss Teen USA and Tennessee's second national titleholder in three years, following the Miss USA win of Rachel Smith in 2007. Prior to Henley's win, only Oregon had produced more than one Miss Teen USA titleholder.

During her reign Henley will make appearances of the behalf of the Miss Universe Organization alongside her sister queens Kristen Dalton, Miss USA 2009, from North Carolina, and Stefanía Fernández, Miss Universe 2009, from Venezuela.

Music[edit]

Stormi auditioned for American Idol Season 10 and was given a Golden Ticket for Hollywood. She was eliminated in the first round of Hollywood Week.[6]

In 2012 Olita joined music group U.G.L.Y., signed to Chris Brown's recording label CBE with fellow artists Barry "Mijo" Bradford and Braxton Olita.
