Season 5’s second runner-up, Elliot Yamin, has been very busy lately. A couple weeks ago, Elliott spoke at the 20th World Diabetes Congress. At the event in Montreal, Canada, Elliott discussed living with diabetes and how to educate people through music. Just prior to his speaking engagement, Elliott performed for troops in Guam and Japan on his second USO Tour.
Since appearing on American Idol, Elliott has released two solo albums. His self-titled album debuted at the number three spot on Billboard’s Top 200 list. His first release “Wait For You,” was a Top 5, platinum-certified smash. Two years in the making, Elliott’s sophomore album, Fight for Love, was released earlier this year and included hit singles “Can’t Keep on Loving You” and the title track “Fight for Love.”
Elliott sat down with AmericanIdol.com to talk about living with diabetes, Fight for Love, and his plans for 2010. Watch the interview!
