American Idol's Tim Halperin Scores Chart Hit
American Idol Season 10 top 12 male finalist Tim Halperin released his debut full-length album, "Rise and Fall," which has climbed to No. 14 on Billboard's Heatseekers Album Chart in only one week.
The Billboard chart recognizes top-selling albums by new and developing musical artists.
Halperin debuted "Rise and Fall" on iTunes on September 27. The album immediately reached No. 1 on iTunes' Singer/Songwriter Chart.
"I'm overwhelmed by the incredible response to 'Rise and Fall' in only its first week of release," Halperin said. "As an unsigned artist, I've invested a lot of myself in its formation and relied on the support of countless individuals to make it happen. The end result is a very honest expression of who I am and I'm glad it's resonated with so many listeners."
Halperin began work on the album in 2010, prior to his time on Idol, and has spent the past year in the studio finalizing the project with producer Jordan Critz, who has worked with The Fray, Third Eye Blind and Lifehouse.
