candice cvr fnlSanta Monica, Calif., Inspired by the outpouring of love from her fans, Season 12 "American Idol" winner, Candice Glover released her love-themed debut album, "Music Speaks," on Feb. 18 on 19 Recordings/Interscope Records.

To give her fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the album, life after "American Idol," and more, Glover partnered with ZinePak, an entertainment company that specializes in creating custom entertainment packages, to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake for fans.

The Candice Glover "Music Speaks" ZinePak couples a 12-song version of the album with an exclusive 64-page magazine and a keepsake bookmark. The magazine features an exclusive interview with Glover, childhood photos, "Idol" memories, fun facts, and much more. The CD includes Glover's newest single, "Cried" as well as an acoustic version of "I Am Beautiful."

This collectible is only available at Wal-Mart and The first 500 pre-orders will also receive a second bookmark autographed by Glover.

Cut from Season 9 of "Idol" during the top 70 round and from Season 11 in the top 40 round, Glover made Season 12's live rounds and floored both audiences and judges with her awe-inspiring renditions of songs such as Ben E. King's "I (Who Have Nothing)" and Emeli Sandé's "Next to Me."
"Nobody expects to win after getting cut twice," said Glover. "But I knew that if I kept trying and believing in myself and in my singing, it would eventually happen for me."
For Glover, gaining that self-confidence after years of struggling with shyness and insecurity is a key part of her journey as a singer.

"I've had the experience of feeling like I'm not good enough and I've overcome that, and now I want to help other people overcome it too," said the R&B star.
