Elise Testone has released her latest single “I Will Not Break” digitally and will release “In This Life,” a full-length album she produced, later this year.
The single has a five-star rating on iTunes.
“Her voice is magic. The message is lovely,” user Marisa Desautel posted on the single’s iTunes page. “I have been listening to this song over and over ever since I downloaded it this morning. Can’t wait for the rest of the album.”
Throughout the competition, she received high praise from judges Steven Tyler (Aerosmith's lead singer), Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, particularly for her unique raspy and bluesy voice. During one episode, J.Lo even told Testone she gave her "gooseys" with her singing.
Footage of Kinnelon was included in another “Idol” episode to show viewers a glimpse into what Testone’s life was like as a child. A group of supporters at Jiggs Corner Music Store was shown.
She has been touring ever since and even appears in a tourism commercial for South Charleston, S.C. Carolina, where Testone lives now.
“I Will Not Break” is also available on Amazon, CDBaby, or Spotify.
