Kimberley Locke

Kimberley Locke made a life-changing decision when she auditioned for the 2003 series of TV talent show "American Idol." She became a fan favorite, eventually placing as second runner-up and setting her on a new career path in the music industry. She signed to Curb Records after her Idol journey, where she became a successful recording artist and released three albums with the label.

Among her many achievements, she's had eight Top 20 Adult Contemporary hits and four #1 Dance hits across various Billboard charts. Her #1 club hit, a remake of the Freda Payne classic "Band of Gold," was included on Billboard's "Top 50 Dance Songs of the Decade" list. She's also made history as being the only recording artist to score a #1 Christmas song on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart three years in a row.

In 2009, Kimberley parted ways with Curb Records and became the first artist to sign a deal with Randy Jackson's record label, Dream Merchant 21 Entertainment. Two years later, she announced she was launching her own artist consulting company, I AM Entertainment, LLC.
