This week’s theme is  Could/Might/Should/Would.

~~~~~~~~~~

Finishing behind Ruben Stoddard and Clay Aiken, Kimberley Locke was the third place winner in season two of American Idol in 2003.

While a fan favorite, Coulda Been, the third release from her 2005 album, One Love, failed to chart. It did, however, find minor success in the UK.

While none of her other songs grew on me, Coulda Been has been a favorite for over a decade.

FUN FACTS:

  • Kimberley has enjoyed major success with Christmas songs. Her version of Up on the House Top, released in autumn of 2005. By the end of year, it had reached the top spot of the Adult Contemporary (A/C) charts. The following year, Locke’s version of Jingle Bells was released and topped the same charts. A full Christmas album entitled Christmas — only available digitally — was released on November 6, 2007.
  • From 2005 through September 2006, Locke was signed with Ford Models’ 14+ Division. She has appeared on the covers of the July 2005 issue of Figure magazine and the summer 2007 issue of UneQ magazine. She has also been a former spokesperson for Lane Bryant and Seven7 Jeans.
  • In 2007 Locke was a participant on the fifth season of Celebrity Fit Club. While filming for the show, Locke chose to follow the Jenny Craig diet plan and had such great success she was offered a deal as spokeswoman with Jenny Craig At the completion of filming for the show, Kimberley weighed in at a final weight of 149 lbs; down a total of 27 lbs. from her original start weight of 176 lbs. A feature in the September 10th issue of People Magazine shows Kimberley at 141 lbs., only 3 pounds away from her goal. Locke announced through her official MySpace blog on October 8, 2007 that she had finally achieved her 40-pound weight loss goal.

The video for Coulda Been was directed by Urban Strom, who also directed videos for Mary J. Blige, Rachel Stevens and LeAnn Rimes. It was filmed in London, England in the spring of 2004. In the video, Kimberley sees another woman’s name show up on her boyfriend’s caller ID. She goes on to tell him that one day he will look back at what “coulda been” and regret letting her go.

Enjoy!
