After auditioning for American Idol three times and being cut twice, Candice Glover boldly scored a spot on the show's twelfth season and used her pure and powerful vocals to emerge the season winner.
As a child, Glover was extremely shy and would only sing for her parents – even asking them to listen from the other side of her closed bedroom door. Over the years, the golden-voiced Glover worked through her stage fright to become the star of her school chorus and a frequent soloist in the church choir of her hometown, Beaufort, South Carolina.
With her coronation song "I Am Beautiful" entering the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs chart at number five, the songstress offers up a debut album that brings her rich voice and stirring delivery to a bold fusion of soul, pop and R&B.
Released by 19 Recordings/Interscope Records, Glover’s debut album “Music Speaks” serves up a sophisticated, yet supremely soulful blend of love songs and self-empowerment anthems. Endlessly moving and deeply intimate, “Music Speaks” finds Glover channeling the emotional dynamism of legendary vocalists who have long inspired her.
Glover, on multiple occasions has performed at our nation’s capital at the request of Michelle Obama and was part of an awe-inspiring concert of performers asked to sing at The White House. Her professionalism and outstanding vocal ability has also allowed her to perform alongside artists such as Patti Labelle, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott and Ariana Grande. Additionally, Glover can be seen in the Hallmark Channel movie Northpole starring Tiffani-Amber Theissen.
