Artist of the day: Cesar De La Rosa
The native Puerto Rican didn’t make it, but he showed enough talent to attract attention for his self-titled debut album, released earlier this year. The songs he’s posted online so far show a highly polished and catchy blend of pop, rock and R&B, which answers the question of what happens to those Idols who don’t quite make it to the top 12. Guess what? They’re still pretty talented.
