For American Idol season 12 winner Candice Glover, the fame has begun. The latest in her flurry of post-finale appearances was a performance on Live with Kelly & Michael this morning (May 20). Accompanied only by a piano, Glover sang her Idol coronation single, “I Am Beautiful,” this time sans tears. Watch her belt out the ballad up top, and stick around for a quick interview in which she explains how she made the transformation from being a singer on her first Idol attempt to being an artist by the time this third try rolled around.
Glover’s forthcoming debut album, Music Speaks, is out July 16 and she’ll perform as part of the Idol tour beginning in June.
