Product Description

Not only was Diana DeGarmo a finalist in the third season of American Idol, at 16 years old she was by far the youngest competitor to make it to the finals. Her success was not by chance; Diana has a powerful singing voice, much stronger than you would expect from someone her age. Her confidence onstage has been honed for years, as she's been singing 'professionally' since she was 6. Diana's passion to succeed & love for singing has gained her more experience entertaining in 10 years than some people do in a lifetime. Her success on American Idol is the culmination of years of hard work & her desire to be a singer. Her debut record showcases everything that brought Diana to this point-powerhouse vocals ('Go On & Cry'), & youthful charisma ('Then I Woke Up'). She's working with some of the hottest producers in pop music (David Foster, John Shanks, Desmond Child), creating a contemporary album that will surely please the millions who voted for her week after week on American Idol. Her appeal as a recording artist is clear: her youth & charisma places her easily into the new batch of talented young singers like Ashlee Simpson & Hilary Duff who rule the pop music world today.

Diana DeGarmo's is a voice--a big, melting, LeAnn Rimes-y kind of voice--in need of a sound, and on this, her debut disc, a team of experts including legendary producer Clive Davis attempts to find her one. The overall effect is a little like watching the baby faced would-be American Idol champ try on outfits at a department store: Half the time, she's riffling around the junior department, churning out angsty teen anthems (check lyrics like "I'm the one that you want/You know I'm heaven sent/I'm a little Lynyrd Skynyrd/A little 50 Cent" from "Then I Woke Up"), and the other half she's trying to find her size in the more grown-up misses racks (both "Blue Skies" and "Dreams" are drenched in an inspirational, Amy Grant-ish vibe best suited to lite FM radio). Luckily, DeGarmo's vocal derring-do saves her from seeming rudderless. The sweet, adult-leaning "Go On and Cry" proves for time eternal that 17-year-old pipes can soar, and the Idol showstopper "Don't Cry Out Loud," a cover of the Melissa Manchester classic, along with "Boy Like You" earn her instant access to the big-belter club. Blue Skies may run into clouds finding its audience, but it forecasts a clear career horizon for the talented DeGarmo. -Tammy La Gorce
