Candice Glover debuted a new song on the American Idol Live tour. “In The Middle” isn’t her new single, but will appear on her upcoming album, Music Speaks, set to be released on October 8.
But here’s a fun tidbit, Candice revealed to the Hollywood Reporter, backstage at the American Idols Live concert at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles earlier this week. The song was co-written by American Idol season 3 winner, Fantasia!
I knew I could do a new song on tour and I chose ‘In the Middle’ because it’s fun and reminds me of summertime and being in love and having these good feelings when you’re with this guy. I love singing about being in love and this is the perfect song about that. It reminds you of going to the beach with your friends.” Then Glover makes the big reveal: the song was written by Rob Kleiner, Reg Styles and a name very familiar to Idol viewers: Fantasia. Glover was sent a demo version with Fantasia’s vocals. “It was fun listening to her version and learning from it,” says the Idol winner.
How cool would it be if Fantasia’s demo version leaked onto the internets? Here’s hoping. To read what the rest of the Top 11 have to say about their tour songs, read the full article at the Hollywood Reporter
