Never before has there been an artist who has been equally recognized, awarded and celebrated both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, as has Paula Abdul.
Paula’s currently preparing her first album consisting of new material in over a decade. The album is intended for release in the Fall of 2009 and will include fresh, hip, edgy music that only Paula can create. The release of her new record will please fans young and old as she continues to show that she is nothing short of fabulous. The new album will also help celebrate the 20th anniversary of the multi-platinum single “Straight Up,” the song that shot Paula Abdul straight up the charts and into the hearts of America.
Paula’s extraordinary music career is exemplified by worldwide album sales exceeding 53 million records, two multi-platinum albums, six #1 singles, two Grammy Awards, five MTV Awards, four American Music Awards, two Emmy Awards, two People’s Choice Awards, a Teen Choice Award and two Kid’s Choice Awards. Paula has also been honored with her very own star on Hollywood Boulevard and was inducted into Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Hall of Fame.
Currently, Paula is providing aspiring pop-singers with her extensive musical expertise while receiving acclaim as “the heart and soul” of the number one show on television, American Idol. As one of the celebrity judges on the record-breaking FOX series, going into its 8th season, contestants and TV viewers alike have given Paula high praise for her positive and insightful feedback to the hopeful young singers.
