The 23-year-old singer won the singing competition this year and became the first female winner in six years!
“I’m happy I came back, and that I was determined enough and it finally paid off,” Candice said after the finale (via USA Today). “Part of me is so happy that it happened, and part of me is relieved that I don’t have to sing for votes and worry about making it to the next round, because that’s such a stressful process. But I know the work is only going to get bigger from here on out.”
The studio version of the 19-year-old singer’s original song was released on iTunes following the season finale of the hit competition show on Thursday (May 16).
