This season proved to be the one for Glover, who belted out classic songs like “I Who Have Nothing)” “Somewhere” and a memorable performance of “Inseparable” with former Idol runner-up Jennifer Hudson. She also did her own version of The Cure’s “Lovesong,” which some critics said was among her best performances of the season.
Glover is proof positive that if at first you don’t succeed, keep trying. The once aspiring pyschologist who say her music has now become her way of counseling stayed the course and it worked out for her. Without her willingness to do it again, and her family’s support (they made the trip every week to see her perform) she might not have eventually become an “Idol” with an album, “Music Speaks” ready to go on July 16. It’s available for pre-orders now and her single “I Am Beautiful” has been released.
“Last July I would have been in an office sweating because so many people wanted to get a golf cart from me and now I have an album coming out in July. Girls tweet me @CAndiceAI12 all the time and tell me that I’m an inspiration for them and the song makes them feel beautiful whatever they’re going through and whatever people tell them. Whatever you want to be in life no matter who tells you no, there’s a yes down the line no matter what.”
