Kimberly Locke Dishes On Life After "Idol" And Her New Single "Strobelight", 4/01/2010

Kimberly Locke may have come into our lives through American Idol, but she has certainly created her own reasons for us to stay captivated by her music. With top hits like "8th World Wonder" and "Wrong" Kimberly has solidified herself as a singing sensation with loyal fans that span the entire world.

Her new dance track  "Strobelight", is due to be released on April 6th.  You can also check out Kimberly's new gig  as she blogs during the new season of American Idol for  US Magazine.  We are very excited to have the opportunity to share our interview with the very talented and beautiful Kimberly Locke.

Maddy: You were a contestant during the second season of American Idol (2002) what was your experience like and would you have done anything differently?

Kimberly: American Idol was an amazing experience and I try to live my life with very few regrets. There's nothing about the experience I would change. It was a positive experience for me and if I had to do it all again I would.

Maddy: My sister is probably one of your biggest fans and has your picture as her goal physique hanging on her wall. It seems like your fans love that they can identify with you as a woman. Tell me about the connection with your fans.

Kimberly: When I was going into the show my life was very normal and then literally you go from nobody knows your name to everyone knows your name. It was a shock factor for me because you lose your unanimity over night. The beautiful part about this is that you go on the show and you have an idea about what you want, but God has a plan that surpasses our understanding. I had a preconceived notion about what it was going to be like, I thought it would have been over and done before I knew it.  What happens with the show is that your in peoples homes 3 days a week minimum, and with this exposure it really is a gift because even after the show is off people still know who you are and are interested in your career.

Maddy: You put out your first album after America Idol. What was this like, to put your own album together?

Kimberly: We understood there was a window of opportunity when the show was over and BMG had the right to refusal and they only chose to work with Clay and Reuben. I had the task of finding my own record deal. I solicited the help of a few of my friends, my lawyer and a couple of people that I met while I was on the show and we all got together and I said "This is what I need and I need it to happen before the end of the tour".  And.... It happened... As soon as the tour ended I was in the studio recording the album.

Maddy: Was the process of putting the album together anything like what you thought it would be like?

Kimberly: (Laughs) No, no, no...none of it is what you think it's like. You have all these preconceived notions, it's just best if you are not married to them.  It was crunch time, and realizing the window of opportunity I needed to get my album out. At that point the songs are coming in, and we are making selections and everything happens really fast.
