Vonzell sang the National Anthem Wednesday, July 11th at 7:05p.m. in Medlar Field at Lubrano Park in Pennsylvania for the State College Spikes vs. Oneonta Tigers game.

She is working this summer at Idol Camp to help kids work on vocal training and stage presence, along with other previous contestants.
Session A was July 7th-16th
Session B is about to begin from July 21st-30th

And lastly, she is working hard on her album which is to be released this year. Her single is rumored to be released sometime late this summer.
That's all for now bye1.gif

Question (which you already saw coming): Can someone give us details about the album, a targeted release date, promotion plans, something... Carrie is already about to release her second album (Oct 23 smile.gif ) and S5's 3rd place has an album out, and S6's 3rd place is being heralded (ok, just by a few deluded ones) as the second coming

It's just frustrating that Vonzell isn't getting the respect or the industry support...
Did she get good offers but turned them down in favor of doing it alone??
Didn't Justin Timberlake say he voted for her? now, he's starting his own label and signed a girl with little talent off youtube... why not Vonzell?

Hooray for new music from my girl! Can't wait to hear it.

Dang! Looks like all five of my faves could be releasing their debuts within a single years time. Nice!

Eww I typed a long response and my computer like froze and closed out of the window...ewww

I wrote this huge thing, but whatever I'll keep it short basically what I said.
Her wikipedia page is updated by what I guess to be someone on her management team. And it was updated just a little over a week ago and this is what it said regarding the album,
In mid-2006, it was announced that Vonzell had a planned record. The record has gone into development hell, and since then not much has been heard about her record. Later Vonzell's representatives claimed that none of the "media's speculations" were true and that they just hit a few bumps along the road. Her CD, My Struggle, under the artist name Baby V, was released to Itunes on January 9, 2007. Fans are expecting Vonzell's professional musical career to begin late 2007, which is when she plans a release of an actual single from her mostly completed album.

Development hell is a concept meaning, 'getting stuck in development and never going into production'

It sounds to me like Vonzell is quite the perfectionist, and that is part of the reason it is taking so long. Until they are 100% happy with it they aren't going to set a date. In some ways I'm glad she isn't putting out some rush rush album that will flop like previous contestants have. Hopefully a better quality album will mean better sales.

I do not know much about the promotion of the album, or the offers she has received since Idol. I know there is a lot of risk when getting involved with a recording contract...Ryan Starr is a good example of that. However, I do worry about the promotion of the album on an independent label. Adding the album on itunes doesn't exactly mean it's going to sell you know.

All I know is a date has not been set. It seemed like a guarantee that the single would be out late summer, and the album later. But I am not so sure about that anymore. Of course the fire and Idol Camp doesn't exactly help when it comes to getting things going. But we'll hope for the best, and I look forward to an album she is happy with.

Idol Camp article (highlights)

NORTHFIELD, Mass. - NORTHFIELD, Mass. - Hundreds of star-struck teens have been finding a little bit of Hollywood tucked in small-town New England this summer.

"American Idol camp - that's something," said camper Natalie Kais, 12, of Fairfield, her eyes shining.

The camp, for 12- to 15-year-olds, just finished its inaugural year. Campers there love "American Idol" and dream of moving from the camp's makeshift wooden platforms to the shiny "Idol" stage. Idol Camp treads a tightrope, making a summer performing arts camp feel like a way to connect to the "American Idol" TV show experience.

One overcast morning early in the second 10-day session, the whole camp belted out "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and then trooped off to singing, dancing and acting classes.

They walked in cliques with new friends, varying their paths to better their odds of running into guest teacher Vonzell Solomon, the third-place finisher in Season 4 of "American Idol." They gossip about how she gave an exclusive Idol Camp performance. They discuss how their lives will be when they're as famous as she is.

A quick glance at the campers' cafeteria tables formed a sea of "American Idol" blue. All staff and campers were required to wear laminated ID tags around their necks. Many campers also chose to wear Idol Camp T-shirts and caps.

Like the show, the camp builds up to a finale, in this case a concert for parents on the penultimate day. All 150 campers sang together. Then kids wrote letters to themselves about what they learned and how it will help them in the future. The camp will mail them home to the campers in six months, as a reminder.

Before the letters arrive, campers will have plenty of memories to share with friends.

"When Vonzell came, everyone was screaming and jumping out of their chairs," said Miles Keeney, 13, of Greenwich. "But we ate lunch with her yesterday like a real person."

Vonzell remains my second favourite contestant on the show and I will support her in whatever she chooses to do in the future! I would love an album to be released this year though. w00twave.gif

Vonzell just performed live on national television for the Jerry Lewis MDA show. She sang with a whole bunch of ballroom dancers. Hopefully I can get the video for everyone who missed.

do you even like Vonzell? ^^^^

Update- Vonzell performed last weekend in Iowa at a fair. It was in my hometown. My family and I met Vonzell, her dad, and manager at the airport. From there my brother and I were able to be tranported to their hotel by limo. We then went to dinner with them at a nice resturant. The next day we met them in the afternoon for Vonzell's sound check before the concert. We watched the concert from the front row and she sounded really really great. Afterwards I helped out with the meet and greet as people were able to get autographs and stuff from Vonzell. Then we walked around the fair together for a while...Vonzell got to get some pictures with some tigers. We went back home for an hour or so as she freshened up at the hotel. Then we met them again and went out to dinner with them again...and were actually there visiting for at least a couple hours. She is a really sweet girl and her manager and dad are wonderful too. My family and I said our goodbyes, but we all promised to keep in touch. A very happy ending to a wonderful weekend. I'll post some videos and pictures soon! thumbsup.gif
