Candice Glover performs John Legend’s “Ordinary People” in American Idol 2013 girls semi-finals.
More on Candice...
“Girl On Fire” was an appropriate song for American Idol 2013 hopeful Candice Glover to sing during Hollywood Week. Although she was cut from seasons 9 and 11, the St. Helena Island, South Carolina native has had a string of stellar performances.
Idol almost lost her, too. After getting cut from Las Vegas last year, she returned home to her job booking excursions on Fripp Island feeling very discouraged. She went back to singing at Luther’s and other bars around the Beaufort area, as well as weddings and funerals. She admits to feeling like her career was going nowhere. Luckily for us and the American Idol 2013 judges, she had a nagging feeling that she was supposed to be here.
Candice returned this year and sang a rendition of “Syrup and Honey” at her initial audition that left the judges nearly speechless. The 23-year-old told her local paper, The Island Packet, that this was the moment that confirmed she’d made the right decision. "It was redemption," Candice said. "It was confirmation that this is actually where I'm supposed to be."
Having nabbed a highly coveted spot in the Top 20, this talented singer has already shown her vocals are the best of the best.
