Adam Lambert is known to use Twitter to spread the word about his artist friends and the latest to receive his support is Megan Joy. Megan Joy won 9th place on season eight of American Idol, the same season in which Adam was the runner-up. She has recently launched a project to raise funds for her upcoming EP and Adam tweeted the link to his more than 1.1 million followers:
“@Meganjoysings Is working on an album – check this out: kickstarter.com/projects/21344…”
Megan responded to Adam’s tweet:
“@adamlambert You are the bessssst!!!!! I love you :)) xoxo”
Those who watched season eight of American Idol or saw Megan Joy perform at the Live Tour may remember that she has a quirky personality and a beautiful, unique voice. If you did not have the opportunity to see her sing on American Idol, you can hear listen to her music on YouTube. She says that her album is now 80% completed, but she is short the funds needed to finish it. Therefore, she is soliciting donations from her fans by way of a “Kickstarter Project.”
“Kickstarter” is a funding platform for creative projects, in which “project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project.” Depending on how much you donate, Megan Joy is offering items such as a digital download or signed hard copy of her upcoming EP, a hand-written, personalized letter, an acoustic cover song of your choice, and more.

Megan Joy is hoping to raise at least $15,000, and is well on her way with over $5,000 already raised. Given his huge twitter following, a tweet from Adam Lambert will no doubt help to raise a great deal of money for Megan Joy. American Idol Kris Allen also tweeted his support for her project a couple of days ago.
If you are interested in helping Megan Joy fund an EP, you can donate via her Kickstarter Project. Please also join Adam in spreading the word to help make her wish come true.
