Emerging Artist

American Idol Season 14 winner Nick Fradiani Debuts at #12 this week on the release of his first full album, Hurricane, on 19 Recordings/Dot Records/BMLG. The single All On You is getting some spins at Top 40 radio, press coverage surrounding the album is helping focus attention, and he just played at the Miss Teen USA pageant.

Nick returned to Idol as a mentor this past February and played on the American Idols Live Tour in 2015…we should expect more touring and high-profile appearances sooner rather than later.
