Constantine’s band signed to a label.
American Idol 4 finalist Constantine’s band has received the ultimate compliment: it’s been signed by the same label that released William Hung’s CD. According to E!, the “band, Pray for the Soul of Betty, has signed with Koch Records and will release its self-titled debut album on May 10.” Koch Records’ president said, orgasmically, “Pray for the Soul of Betty is one of the best rock bands I’ve heard in years. Considering how popular Constantine Maroulis is, we should go gold for sure!” The self-titled album is currently the 349th most popular CD on Amazon.
