More About Tim Halperin:
Tim began work on his first full-length album in the fall of 2010. While working on the album, a friend encouraged him to audition for Season 10 of America’s highest rated television show, American Idol. With a field of more than 125,000 hopefuls vying for a spot on the show, Halperin emerged as one of the Top 24, earning a spot on the live broadcast.
During his time on American Idol, millions of viewers were introduced to Tim’s fun loving, genuine personality and musical talent, as he became one of the first contestants to debut an original song on the show. Following his stint on American Idol, Halperin released “The Last Song” for free as a way to thank his supporters – and to preview what they can expect on his upcoming full-length album, Rise and Fall.
Also during this time, Halperin became a regular on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning and Kraddick created a segment called ‘Idol Got it Wrong’, where Halperin challenged a remaining Idol contestant and listeners voted on which version was best. Tim won 9 weeks straight, with Kraddick declaring him the unofficial winner of American Idol. Kraddick continues to have Halperin on the show as a regular guest, with over 30 appearances in the past 6 months. Tim’s debut full-length CD, ‘Rise and Fall’, released on September 27th, 2011. It debuted at #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Album Chart for 4 days. It also debuted at #14 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart.
