Archives For Erika Van Pelt

On WBRE’s “PA Live!” for this week’s “The Ralphie Report,” I talked about DMX and “American Idol” contestants Elise Testone and Erika Van Pelt.

“American Idol” season eleven finalist Erika Van Pelt did not forget her roots, and she’ll be returning to them soon.

“I’m letting my lease run out in Massachusetts and I’m actually moving back to Warwick (RI),” Van Pelt revealed on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” “I can’t really say exactly what it is yet, but I’m going to be doing some work with Alex and Ani.”

The Ocean State-based jewelry company will be enlisting the help of the “Idol” singer for new jingles and other commercial-related services. Other than that, Van Pelt will be working on a new album, independently.

“I don’t have a label or a management contract as of right now,” she said. “But I do want to make a record, and I know if I have to fund it independently, I totally will. I’ll do more DJ gigs; whatever I have to do to make that happen.”
