/PRNewswire/ — After finishing as one of the top female contestants
for American Idol 2011, singing sensation Kendra Chantelle is about to
put her original music out to the rest of the country.  Having recently
spent time in the studio with producers Elvis “Blacelvis” Williams
(Beyonce, Ludacris, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Fergie, Jamie Foxx) and Grammy Award winning producer Harold Lilly (Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia) at Upstairs Studios in Atlanta, GA, Kendra will be releasing her debut album “Unthinkable” November 7, 2011.   

recording process has been so comfortable and almost effortless,”
states Kendra about the recording process.  “Elvis, Harold and I all
just do what comes naturally to us and it works so well together…to
me, that’s a sign that it’s the right combo. I’ve heard if you do what
you love, you’ll never work a day in your life and I finally understand
that. We have spent long days and late nights in the studio but it has
yet to feel like ‘work.'”

with Kendra was a breath or fresh air, “states producer Blacelvis
Williams about the recording process with Kendra and Lilly.  “Her vocals
have matured enormously and she’s quick!  Kendra has no limitations
when it comes to us asking her to do something vocally, that’s why it
was fun creating this album. It was never a dull moment! She has so much
soul it amazed Harold and I.  We want people to get to know the real
Kendra and love her for who she is.”

is excited to get her music to the public and to her national fan
base.  “I feel like this album is so ME. I have never been more
comfortable musically, lyrically or vocally. I feel like I have finally
grown into the music I always wanted to do and now I don’t only hear it
in my head, I have found the right people to help me get it out of my
head and onto records. It’s an incredible representation of heartaches
I’ve experienced and emotions I’ve had.”

Residing in Nashville,
Kendra entered and was given the green light on American Idol to move
on to the quarterfinals after initially competing among millions of
potential contestants that came to audition for the coveted slots. 
Having made it to the semi-finalist spot, she was chosen by Judge Steven Tyler
to join the group of wild cards to compete for the 12th spot.  Many
have said that she should have not only won that spot, but should have
gone a lot further than she did.  “I’m ok with it,” Kendra reflects.  “I
am grateful to have had the chance to sing in front of such a broad
audience.  I know some of the fans that I have made on a nationwide
basis are looking forward to me coming out with a new album and I am
looking forward to making that happen.”
