Watching Candice Glover perform last week on "American Idol" was like watching a paid performance at the Lincoln Center in New York City. That's how great she performed.
As we watched her at home, my wife and I agreed that the performance was worth the Lincoln Center or a Broadway show. Her voice and talents are within the class of Marian Anderson, Shirley Bassey, Ella Fitzgerald, Jessye Norman, and of course, our current top performers.
The "West Side Story" classic she sang was tops, and the results putting her as one of the two finalists indicated her greatness.
St. Helena Island and all of Beaufort are very proud of Candice. Weeks ago, our family made calls throughout the country making certain that all our friends, relatives and associates watch and vote for Candice Glover, which we all need to do again tonight.
Never miss a local story.
