Syesha Mercado on Life After Idol, Plus Idol’s Tour

Syesha Mercado, the most recent eliminated “Idol” says “I’m growing as an artist, I’m evolving” of her experience on American Idol. Mercado along with the remainder of the top 10 including Chikezie Eze and Ramiele Malubay will embark on the American Idol’s Live Tour in July. Tickets for the tour spanning three months including stops in St. Louis, Newark and Los Angeles went on sale this weekend. Mercado, the last woman standing says she is ready to show music fans exactly who she is. Citing artists like Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera, Mercado looks forward to putting together a pop/R&B album. “I definitely can see myself putting together a Christina Aguilera album, the one that she just recently did and an Alicia Keys album like ‘The Diary of Alicia Keys,” the singer told journalists during a teleconference last week. “So I’m growing as an artist. I’m evolving. And I’m glad that I did do “American Idol” because people were able to see that transition that I went through, and I’m still learning more about myself everyday. And I think that’s beauty of doing this competition. You just learn so much. So people will know who I am. You’ll know who I am once I put out that album.” Pop Tarts presents Idol’s Live kicks of July 1st in Glendale, AZ.
