Karen Rodriguez is a name you better get familiar with, as the Roc Nation signee is on the rise. Thursday (April 13), the 2011 American Idol alumna stopped by the VIBE stage for a swoon-worthy performance of her original “April Fools” single off her upcoming project. Rodriguez explained the inspiration behind the emotional track, stemming from a party she was supposed to meet a guy at where she was stood up, leading to Rodriguez penning the track on the night after the gathering.
The bilingual singer also boasted her diverse range of vocals with covers of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” and Adele’s “Hello” that have made the Dominican native go viral on YouTube. Karen showed off the love she has for every single one of her supporters vehemently expressing, “I love you guys so much, thank you for your support!” Watch her in action below.
