Paris Bennett homecoming and recording news
This item got lost in the post-finale madness a few weeks ago. Paris Bennett sang and danced for more than 2, 000 people in Rockford, IL at her homecoming celebration last month. During a question-and-answer session, she announced that she’d be releasing a Jazz Christmas album later this year.
She performed “The Way We Were” and a snippet of her audition tune “Take 5”. Her favorite song to perform? Beyonce’s “Work it Out” because it gave her a chance to dance. When asked how she felt about Taylor winning American Idol, she said, “All I can say is … Soul Patrol!”
