‘American Idol’ Top 7 Original Songs
The competition is now narrowed down to the Top 5, consisting of Fritz Hager, HunterGirl, Leah Marlene, Nicolina and Noah Thompson. But last week’s eliminated contestants Christian Guardino and Jay also got a chance to record new singles.
Fritz Hager, “Hearts Align”
Fritz’s new song is called “Hearts Align”. After hearing the teaser, I commented that the song was reminiscent of Fritz’s idol, Phillip Phillips. The full song definitely has that vibe, but Fritz puts his own style to it.
“Hold me down, I’m sinking / Oh, I know your heart isn’t mine / I can’t stop this feeling / Take me back the moment our hearts align,” Fritz sings on the chorus of the song. He’s performed several original songs on the show before, and this is another one for fans before he hits the stage again.
Hunter Girl, ‘Red Bird’
HunterGirl’s song is called “Red Bird”. The Platinum Ticket winner said on Instagram that it was “one of the most personal songs I’ve ever written.” She said her mother told her that the red birds were signs that lost loved ones were caring for us.
The song shows off the singer’s signature country style, with a music video featuring family photos. On Friday morning, HunterGirl celebrated on social media that the song reached No. 7 on the iTunes Country Chart.
Lea Marlene, ‘Flowers’
Leah’s song is called “Flowers”. She called it “an encouragement for my past”. The inspirational track is backed by acoustic guitar, and the music video overlays images of flowers over Leah’s recording session.
“Cause even the sidewalk gives way to flowers / When you’re six feet under it’s hard to hear the fracture / New life grows in the layers you’ve lost,” Leah sings in the chorus, which shows the voice that brought her to the Top 5.
