American Idol 10 Top 24 contestant, Tim Halperin has released the official music video for his original song, “The Last Song”.

He writes on his Tumblr

Finally.  I present to you ‘The Last Song’ Music Video.  After watching the final product this morning, all I can do is think about how thankful I am for the incredible amount of support that I have.  The Directors, Producers, Editors, Cast and Crew did an incredible job on this project.  Their tireless efforts made this video a reality.

I wouldn’t have released this video in any other way than how it went down this morning.  I was able to introduce it on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, watch it live in the Kraddick Studio with 30 of the people involved with the video, and personally thank viewers after it aired.  How freaking cool is that?  I am blessed beyond belief.

Tim guested on the Kidd Kraddick show every Thursday to sing a song performed the night before on Idol. Listeners could vote for which version they liked best.

Watch the video for the tune–a lush, big-chorused ballad–below:

    I really like the song. I really love the video! Very professional & cool….on his first video. This is his first video, right? Color me very impressed.

  • ilovekrisallen39

    I remember how much I wanted him to make it into the 13. I really love his voice a lot. The video and song are really good. Can’t wait to hear more of his music.

  • Reflections On Life

    very nice listenable song!

  • holeigh_annie

    LOVE THIS. That dance scene at the end makes me want to change my wedding date from Christmas to summer, haha.

    WOW, very creative video! I love it. Tim is so talented and I really wanted him to make the top 13. But I hope he does well on his own. He seems like a great guy. I can’t wait for his album.

    He actually had a video for the song “she runs” as well. You can find it on Youtube.

    I really liked him and thought he would have made it to the top 13. Like the song and video is great. He’s very talented and would definitely buy his music. Something appealing about a guy that can play the piano.

    I really like the song, his voice and the video

  • larc

    The song and video are both great!

  • Miss Blue

    Very nice but I like She Runs a whole lot more.

  • desiree_chick

    Colour me surprised, I like it! The vid and the song is pretty cool :)
    I think, and it is a stretch, there could be a very, very slight possibility he may be the first semi-finalist to break out a hit or two. I say slight, so don’t quote me on it. LOL

    I don’t know if he will become a success outside of Idol or not, and I wasn’t a big fan of his to begin with. I thought enough singers like him has dominated last year, and two of his kind sorta already won Idol, so I’m still glad he didn’t make it any further. Which is good, because the exposure he is getting is enough to take him somewhere without being bound to 19e. I just have good vibes about Tim, so good luck to him.

    Is 19e less restrictive this year? I remember in the past they weren’t allowed to do anything until their contracts were up at the end of the summer.

    I liked that song so much I went to his website to download it and there’s a free ep on there as well, so maybe it’s cool if they’re making zero money for their music over the summer? Haha.

    Yea, Tim actually talked about this in an interview back in March. I think it’s okay if they’re not making money on it. He’s given away several songs for free. I remember he said he can’t release his album until September because of the rules.

  • Swind

    Nice song and video. It’s a shame he didn’t get one of the 4 wildcard spots. I guess it might have ruined the hee haw twins finale that Nigel and TPTB longed for.

  • sr4mjc

    Nice job, I like his voice. I was suprised he didn’t make it further but I can see why he wouldn’t have been a wild card choice by the judges, too similar to the guys they were trying to avoid this year.

    I like this song. Cool video too, though I have to say my first thought when his hand broke through the ground was “Tim’s a zombie?”

    One of my early favourite competitors. Was very disappointed he didn’t get farther.

  • brittneybabyy

    I was shocked when he didn’t make the Top 13, or even make it as a judge’s WildCard pick. Oh well, it seems that he’s doing well on his own! This music video is super creative and I really enjoy the song. I feel as though he went into Idol with the Paul mentality. Y’know, looking at Idol as a “platform” and not a ticket to fame. Anyway, I’m diggin’ this. I’ll probably buy an album if he puts one out!

  • sdmama

    It sounds like something Ryan Tedder might have written, which is a good thing because I love Ryan Tedder! I really like it. It sounds like a hit song to me.

    I hope he will find his place in the music industry. Somebody must love him a lot to be able to produce a video like this one. I see why he may not have made a good TV show (too similar to Paul etc) but he is a great song writer and a singer.
    I will be watching you now, Tim.

  • SajiNoKami

    I think I understand why he didn’t make the top 13. Tim is a a fairly sold, straight forward sound, total AC ready. Just looking at the 6 guys who did make it, they are all kind of extremes in their sounds and no 2 are remotely alike. Nothing all that subtle, not even in personality.. this even includes Scotty, with his extreme mellow.

    The video was financed through Kickstarter.com which raised $8265 from 120 backers.

  • cinmich

    very nice…

  • sdmama

    $8265? That’s not a huge ammount of money for a video this great. I am impressed. I didn’t know that it was funded collectively, either. Wow, making me feel warm and fuzzy, and hopeful. Thanks for sharing the background story.
