Congratulations, Candice Glover!
You may recall I discussed Candice Glover’s road to becoming the American Idol winner here. Candice’s first comment after being announced as the winner was to say “three years,” meaning that it had taken her three tries to win. And she did so against several other very strong singers.
The difference this time?
Of course Candice Glover has a great voice with a big range and lots of power when she needs it. But the winning edge, I think, was that she has great control and technique with a strong emotional commitment to the lyric. Candice also made good song choices.
Taken a listen to her on “I Who am Nothing”and see if you agree.
