This year’s “American Idol” winner Candice Glover has followed in the footsteps of alums like Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks. The powerhouse vocalist recently revealed an amazing 30-pound weight loss, and said she couldn’t be more “happy about it.”
“Over the course of the show, from January to May, I probably dropped 20 lbs. And I’ve lost about 10 more since the finale,” Glover said during an interview with People magazine. “It is always good to be healthy, so I am happy about it.”
The 23-year-old South Carolina native went on the say that her weight lost wasn’t planned.
“I’ve always – well maybe I haven’t always – been comfortable with who I am. This weight is just dropping off because of my crazy schedule,” she explained.”I just walk a lot in the airports, and then we are rehearsing the choreography. I call [the rehearsal room] the gym, to be honest.”
Glover is currently rehearsing for “Idol’s” summer tour and gearing up for the release of her debut album, which will hit stores on October 8th.
