Our own local star! Evelyn Cormier is a Claremont native and has made it to the top 14 of American Idol and now we will get to see her perform on stage.
Music has a strong place in her heart: started violin at 4, singing in the choir in elementary school, performed in a band, and even has her own album out called Ghost.
She has already wowed the judges and you can see a summary of her recent performance here on WMUR or the whole thing in the vidoe below.
She has a smooth voice with its own unique style to it that I really like. During her American Idol auditions she chose a unique song, Wicked Game by Chris Isaak. This has a lot of low and high parts to it and I was impressed at she sang it and made it her own. The judges were impressed too.
I think where she really shines is in her own pieces.
Her lyrics are beautiful and her voice is silky and heavenly, really relaxing to listen to.
This woman is destined for wonderful things! Adding her cd to my itunes list!
Join me in cheering on this local lady.
