Ace Young & Diana DeGarmo In SAMSON & DELILAH Concept Recording Out Today
Broadway headliners and AMERICAN IDOL notables Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo take their romance from behind the scenes to the stage as the titular lovers in the Biblically-themed new concept recording of SAMSON & DELILAH, available now.
The official description of the new concept recording of SAMSON & DELILAH is as follows: "This contemporary pop/rock concept album consists of songs from the forthcoming new musical Samson & Delilah with music and lyrics by Ron Yatter, former William Morris agent. Newly married lovers, and American Idol stars, Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo perform in the title roles. The songs are a unique combination of classic legit theater and pop/rock, creating a new musical sound that tells the epic, tragic love story of the biblical couple from two different worlds. Delilah, the beautiful young Philistine, falls in love with the mighty Samson, but when overcome by misguided jealousy, she betrays the man she loves. Though they both launched to stardom after appearing in different seasons on American Idol, it was in the Broadway revival of Hair where Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo met and fell in love. "Their love informs their beautiful and exciting portrayals of the album songs," noted Ron Yatter."
