Last Thursday, Candice Glover became the 12th American Idol winner. As part of her coronation, the singer premiered her debut single, I Am Beautiful, live in front of the televised audience and viewers nationwide. The performance was followed by the unveiling of the studio version of the cut, which doubles as listeners’ first taste of the singer’s debut studio album. This incarnation features a number of minor changes, most noticeably a keyboard-heavier instrumental backdrop courtesy of producer First Born and a subtle sheen of Auto-Tune on Glover’s vocals, but packs a similarly strong emotional punch. If this soaring ballad struck a chord with you keep it locked for more fresh tunes leading up to the July 16, release of freshman full-length Music Speaks via 19 Recordings and Interscope.
