Banking On Lakisha

Provident Bank's tiny branch in Millersville is located inside the Shoppers Food Warehouse, directly opposite the frozen foods. It's so chilly that the tellers keep space heaters beneath their desks. But when Lakisha Jones started working there last summer, she ushered in a one-woman warm front.

The 27-year-old Jones is the singer with the blazing furnace of a voice who is rapidly becoming a favorite with the judges and viewers of American Idol's sixth season - just as she became an overnight favorite with her customers and colleagues at the bank.

On TV American Idol airs at 8 tonight and tomorrow night on WBFF (Channel 45).
