Haley Reinhart Announces Series of Free Concerts & Album Signings, Performs Debut Single on Conan

So as I teased last week, American Idol third-runner up (and my personal fav) Haley Reinhart performed her debut single, "Free" on Conan this past Tuesday. Watch Haley TEAR IT UP with Conan below. If I'm being honest, vocally, this was not her best performance. She sounded a bit better during her Idol performance, but she does hit her stride and when she does, Haley sounds effing fantastic, plus look at her! Loving this girls fashion. Stunning.
In other Haley Reinhart-related news, I have the deets on some planned appearances promoting the release of her debut album, Listen Up! (19 Recordings/Interscope Records) May 22nd. During the album's release week next month, Haley has lined up a series of FREE performances and album signings in Los Angeles, Chicago (Haley's AND my home town!) and Minneapolis, so if you consider yourself a true "Halien" you best go out and show your support! Check BELOW for dates and locations.

As you're already aware, Haley released her debut single "Free," (co-written by Lucie Silvas and Busbee) last month, along with an absolutely GORGEOUS video. "Free" serves as the first single from Haley's debut album, Listen Up!, featuring additional collaborations with Mike Elizondo (Nelly Furtado, Alanis Morissette), Rob Kleiner (Cee-Lo Green, Tub Ring), Rune Westberg (Adam Lambert, Kris Allen) and Chris Seefried (Dia Frampton, Counting Crows). In addition to this impressive list of contributors, Reinhart co-wrote many of the albums tracks herself, which is always impressive, especially for an American Idol cast off. Being able to write your own tunes is definitely a promising sign of things to come for this talented 21-year old.
Check BELOW for a list of all Haley's FREE performances next month, as well as her performance of "FREE" on Conan.
Please Note: There will be limited space at each event.
