Candice Glover - The "Music Speaks" songstress Candice Glover is a vocal force to be reckoned with.

Showcasing her tenacity like Le'Andria (who auditioned for Sunday Best after her home was foreclosed on), she returned to vie for a chance to win Idol after being eliminated on season nine.  (Photo: Ethan Miller/BET/Getty Images for BET)
