Reigning "American Idol" Champ Candice Glover Finally Releases Debut, "Music Speaks"

It's the rule: you win American Idol in May, and toward the end of that same year -- fall or winter -- you release your debut album. It's been that way ever since the show's second season.  But the show's reigning champ, Candice Glover, is bucking the trend.  Though she was crowned the winner of season 12 in May of 2013, her debut album, Music Speaks, is just arriving this week. Ironically, Music Speaks was supposed to be out earlier than any winner's album -- it was originally slated to come out in July.  But as Candice tells ABC News…
