This year’s “American Idol” winner Candice Glover has followed in the footsteps of alums like Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks. The powerhouse vocalist recently revealed an amazing 30-pound weight loss, and said she couldn’t be more “happy about it.”
“Over the course of the show, from January to May, I probably dropped 20 lbs. And I’ve lost about 10 more since the finale,” Glover said during an interview with People magazine. “It is always good to be healthy, so I am happy about it.”
The 23-year-old South Carolina native went on the say that her weight lost wasn’t planned.
“I’ve always – well maybe I haven’t always – been comfortable with who I am. This weight is just dropping off because of my crazy schedule,” she explained.”I just walk a lot in the airports, and then we are rehearsing the choreography. I call [the rehearsal room] the gym, to be honest.”
Glover is currently rehearsing for “Idol’s” summer tour and gearing up for the release of her debut album, which will hit stores on October 8th.
We wish her success and give her kudos on being healthy and looking great!
