Allison Iraheta has been living her dream for the past two years, going from an American Idol finalist to Jive Records recording artist. Her debut album "Just Like You" has sold over 100,000 copies, and her new single, featuring Australian rock goddess Orianthi, "Don't Waste the Pretty" hit airwaves last month. She is also touring with best friend and openly gay superstar Adam Lambert this summer/fall on his Glam Nation Tour. That alone makes her gay-friendly, but there is more to this story than meets the eye.
Allison's album features many songs that the LGBT community can relate to. The gut-wrenching ballad "Scars" hits home when she sings, "Take me, This is all that I've got, This is all that I'm not, All that I'll ever be." The newest single "Don't Waste the Pretty" is a rock-infused song that challenges the listener to not waste their time on people who don't appreciate them. It says, "And there ain't not use in you hiding, Cause you're beautiful." It is also full of upbeat pop/rock music, such as the Kevin Rudolf-produced track "Beat Me Up" and lead single "Friday I'll Be Over U."
Allison also headlined the Long Beach Pride event this past May just weeks after her 18th birthday. That's almost unheard of for a major recording artist to do at the very beginning of his or her career, especially as a teenager. I'm a big fan of hers, not just because she loves the gays, but also because her music and talent is out of this world. Watch and listen to "Don't Waste the Pretty" below and click here to check out her album "Just Like You".
