HALEY REINHART, ‘WASTED TEARS’ – LIVE VIDEO PREMIERE [PopCrush, VIDEO, 6/25]
PopCrush has teamed up with the lovely, talented and husky-voiced singer for this exclusive premiere of ‘Wasted Tears,’ which she performed live at the TouchTunes concert.
We spent so many months enjoying Reinhart’s take on other people’s songs during her season of ‘Idol,’ but now, she is treating fans to her own tunes, which she delivers masterfully in her gorgeous, smoky, neo-blues voice. Reinhart was always an old soul trapped a young body, and that hallmark of her style remains apparent in this video.
Casey Abram’s album Casey Abrams releases today including a duet with Haley, “Hit The Road jack”.

Yeeeaaaa! “Oh My! (Feat. B.o.B.)” will be featured on Hollywood Exes tonight at 10/9c on VH1! Check it out! – Team Haley
Former American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart is making quite a musical debut with her first studio album, Listen Up! An already well-received album, this is one of the best new pop albums to date from 2012.
When Hollywire.com asked Haley about the one word to describe her new album she told us “unique”, and that is exactly what fans can expect!
The album, co-written by Haley, save the lead-single, Free, is an eclectic blend of what one would expect from the sultry-voiced Chicago native: a bit of pop, rock, R&B and a truly soulful feel, something missing in the albums of today. “It was really important to me that the record have an organic, soulful sound that truly reflects the kind of artist I want to be.”

How was it to record with Haley Reinhart?
“Easy and fun. There’s never any stress involved. It was kind of a spontaneous session, I hit her up and I said, ‘Hey, I did ‘Hit the Road Jack.’ I played the bass and tried singing it myself, but I wanted her to sing it. She knows how to improvise and have fun, so it’s always a good time.”
