Fans swarmed a Beaufort Wal-Mart to meet former American Idol winner Candice Glover. 

More than 400 people waited in line for more than an hour to get a chance to meet Candice Glover and buy her debut album called "Music Speaks."

It was an exciting day for many folks who were eager to meet the Beaufort County native and winner of the 12th season of American Idol. Candice signed hundreds of her debut album and took one on one pictures with fans and she says she wanted to thank them personally.

"Well my fans from my hometown are always going to be my favorite because they jumped behind me 100 percent as soon as they heard I was going to be on American Idol the first time, it's great to see that they haven't jumped off the wagon and they are still here," said Candice Glover.

For some fans, this was their first time meeting the celebrity singer.

"I just got my cd signed by Candice Glover and it was really exciting and fun to meet her," said fan Gracie Davidson.

For others, they jump at every chance they get to meet her.

"I met her out at the Tanger Outlet; I've been to everything, the parade in Beaufort, everywhere she is I try to be," said fan Inez Miller.

Where will Glover be next? Will it be on tour? 

"I can't say too much right now, but I'll be opening for some great artists," said Glover.

She hopes to make official tour announcements soon. Many fans couldn't wait to get in the car to listen to their new cd. Post your pictures with Candice and the new cd on our WTOC Facebook page.
