Jordin Sparks Teases her upcoming album at pre-grammy event – ‘I HAVEN’T HEARD ME THIS WAY.’ American Idol 6 winner Jordin Sparks says she’s finishing up a new album with the hip-hop producer Zaytoven that’s unlike anything she’s done before.

Texas Hill Talks Genesis of Trio & Journey To Their Debut Album ‘Heaven Down Here’ – The singing show supergroup consists of The Voice 7 winner Craig Wayne Boyd, The Voice 10 runner-up Adam Wakefield and American Idol 9 2nd runner-up Casey James. ““I didn’t realize how much I lacked the ability to work with people,” admitted James. “I was like, well, I have to compromise now. It’s forced me to become a better person. It has taught me a lot and I really enjoy the dynamic of it. It really just takes us all back. All three of us, before we did The Voice and Idol, we were band guys. That’s what we did. I ran with multiple different outfits and was a part of different things and it was never the Casey James show. It was just a group of people that I loved playing music with. And to be back in that scenario is just a breath of fresh air. It’s nice to have people that are equally invested in what you’re doing.” – Read more at Music Mayhem Magazine

BWW Interview: Margie Mays – Margie, who appeared on American Idol season 17 and 18 is currently playing Elle Woods in Legally Blonde the Musical playing at the Hollywood Majestic Theater in Los Angeles. Broadway World asked Margie: How has the last couple years changed you as an artist and a performer? “Oh my goodness, I have completely transformed in the last couple years. Idol changed me by opening my heart and showing me that I can be exactly who I am. And that my dreams are not too big to say out loud anymore. Then the pandemic and my breakup (She and fellow season 18 contestant Jonny West split up) changed me because I had to do a lot of deep diving, heal old wounds, and find that all the strength and love I needed was within me all along. In the last couple years, I have really seen myself go from a girl to a woman. My goodness, that transition doesn’t come smoothly. It was birthed by a lot of pain. But I am so happy to be coming out of the cocoon. Getting to step on the stage as Elle in a couple days time feels like my butterfly moment. I could cry! Of joy!” – Read more at Broadway World
