Elliott Yamin - Sing Like You Mean It

Elliottlaunched his recording career following his appearance on American Idol Season 5 as the top 3 finalist with his highly anticipated debut album Elliott Yamin, which debuted at Number Three on the Billboard album chart and was the highest-debuting album by an independent artist in SoundScan history. The self-titled disc achieved gold status in the U.S. and Japan (where he continues to maintain a large audience), and yielded the platinum hit ‘Wait for You.’ In the wake of the first album's release, Yamin received considerable media exposure on countless television shows, while gaining extensive performing experience by touring around the world with his live band. He released the Christmas-themed “Sounds of the Season: The Elliott Yamin Holiday Collection’, later that same year which would be reissued in expanded form the following year as ‘My Kind of Holiday’. Yamin's second official album, Fight for Love, followed, spawning the successful singles ‘Fight for Love’ and ‘Can't Keep on Loving You (From a Distance)’. His third album, ‘Let’s Get to What’s Real’, found Yamin stretching as an artist as a writer and co-producer. Yamin continues to tour domestically and internationally which have also included three trips to Africa as a spokesman to the ‘Malaria no More Foundation’ as well as a variety of charities, relief groups and peace organizations.
