American Idol Season 14 winner and Big Machine Records recording artist Nick Fradiani knocks it out of the park again with his debut single “Beautiful Life,” which officially broke into the Top 30 on the Hot Adult Contemporary chart this week. The exciting news comes on the heels of the release of his anticipated music video for the track, directed by the highly acclaimed Shane Drake (Paramore, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson) and shot in Nashville, TN.
The heartthrob spent time in New York City this week, surprising fans with a performance of the National Anthem at the Yankees vs. Red Sox game last night (8/4). Watch the video of his performance below.
“As a Connecticut native, I grew up watching the Yankees,” said Nick. “Yankee Stadium is an iconic place and I still can’t believe I had the opportunity to sing the National Anthem there before one of sports greatest rivalries.”
In addition to working on new music, Nick is currently on the road for the AMERICAN IDOL LIVE TOUR 2015 with the other Top 5 contestants from the show. “Beautiful Life,” written by Ryan Williamson, Ayanna Howard and Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba, is now available on iTunes.
