San Diego’s own, Adam Lambert, has been chosen to sing on the new apocalyptic film, 2012. Lambert who was the favorite to win the most recent season on American Idol is a San Diego bred talent.

Born in Indianapolis, he moved to Southern California to grow up in our beloved city. Raised in Rancho Penasquitos, he attended Mt. Carmel High School. Like many do, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career.

Starting off in theater and performing in a number of bands and shows, it was only a matter of time until Lambert got on American Idol. Dazzling the audience and fans worldwide, Lambert was a new shining star that burned brighter than most idol contestants. Picked to win, and pegged as the favorite amongst the Idol community, Lambert surprisingly lost. Despite his loss, Lambert was set to do bigger and better things, and took it with a grain of salt.

One of those said-to-be star moments of Lambert’s is his new song in the film 2012.

Lambert’s contribution to the film has been quoted by Queen’s guitarist Brian May as “so obviously a number one hit.” Praise from a man of May’s status is not something that comes lightly. Obviously Lambert amazed May with the song, showing him that the “age of Lambert” is about to begin; the closing of Idol was just the beginning for him.

2012 is a film that is based around the apocalyptic premonitions of many cultures throughout the world; the prediction is that the last day of earth’s existence is December 21, 2012. Human existence as we know it may come to an end, but at least we’ll get to rock out to Lambert’s track as it is happening.

Lambert’s song has almost become more anticipated than the film itself. Many people have been waiting to see what Lambert will do next, and how he has transformed himself after his appearance on American Idol.

The song is said to be so great, we here at the Entertainer believe it will launch him into iconic status and will jump start his career into a whole other realm. To let you know how powerful his song is said to be, and probably is, here is the direct quote from Brian May. He is not some slouch in music, and his opinion almost guarantees the song as a smashing hit.

“I have to say I was completely blown away … it’s truly sensational. In fact it’s so obviously a number one smash, any bookie would be mad to take bets on it. I am not kidding. I’m not easily moved to jelly by male vocalists … but Adam’s voice reaches out with sensitivity, depth, maturity, and awesome range and power which will make jaws drop all around the world. It’s an awesome performance. No doubt about it. The world of Rock has a bright new star.”

    An article worth reading though the news is more than a week old… it’s probably the way it has been written. Thanks!

    Thank you, lovely write up. I’m very much looking forward to anything new by Adam Lambert, hope it turns out to be a great release. Of course, I must see the movie as soon as it hits the theater, preferably on the wide screen with the surround sound.

    Adam is so obviously talented, all of his fans have known this from the start. He was incredible at the concert in NY, just blew me away — stage presence, charisma, what an amazing performer, and good looking and sexy too! All of his fans already know he will reach iconic status very soon, and we will always be there for him. To us, his fabulousness is old news, he’s already got us hooked! And there are millions of us around the world.

    I can hardly wait!
    Adam has the star power to take his career into the stratosphere and we’re just watching it on the ground floor today.
    San Diego, you’re a lucky puppy! Being the springboard for this guy, along with MET2’s teaching and guidance, you must take great pleasure watching AdamAdam working his magic with his amazing voice and his uber-cool personality in the entertainment industry. You turn out some stellar talent, SD!

    …the boy who fell, magically and mysteriously to Earth….

    Super Iconic…..SMART MOVE to the producers of 2012. I might not have been in the theatre on day 1 to see this movie, but with Adam singing I WILL BE there!! I agree…probably the most anticipated song release in a long time. Certainly for ME it is! I am buying just about everything I can of Adam’s on iTunes…just won’t buy Want since it’s not an Adam-approved release…but it IS still great! Pure JOY watching him emerge as the bright STAR he is. I have to say, I would pay BIG money when he starts touring on his own…..got away CHEAP at the Idols concert…he was worth, more than worth, EVERY PENNY spent there!! Not to mention I got the coveted autograph and touched him. Will probably never in my life ever get so close again, but I’m happy to watch him grow to SUPER stardom now!!! Along with many other fans I picked him out in his first Idol audition and watched the show this season MAINLY because of Adam. I have been an Idol fan over all the seasons, but no doubt in my mind Adam will eclipse ALL previous winners in terms of the range and variety of things he will be involved in. There is SO much he can do. Heavens, he could be a MODEL and made TONS of money at it…he is SO good looking, sexy, charismatic, etc. etc.!!!

    Nice article! I’m in Europe and Adam has a big fan base here, too. I’ve no doubt that this song will give him the chance to get known by all the rest of people who didn’t watch AI over here. I cannot wait for the movie to come out, only because he’ll sing there. I can’t wait for his album to come out, either.
    He’s a star, I thank God he auditioned for AI and gave us goosebumps every week. It seems everything he touches now becomes gold. I wish him all the best, he’s a truly unique artist and human being.

    I was also lucky enough to see Adam Lambert live, I was in row 5! OMG I’m so glad that I got to see him now so up close and personal. I’ll probably never have the chance again. I will be watching the movie too. I can’t wait to hear the song that Brian spoke such high praises about. If Brian says it will be great, I believe it! Adam has said that he will have a single out sometime in October and then the full CD in November, I wonder if that song will be on it. I’m so happy that it will be heard world-wide, he deserves every good thing that comes to him. I will definately buy his cd as apposed to waiting to hear it on youtube. I want him to make some money.

    I’m in the UK and flew to the US to see Adam at the start of his life as a megastar. I don’t even go to concerts normally. The last person I saw in concert was Bruce Springsteen in the 80s! Many people have travelled from other countries (including Israel and Asia) to see Adam.That’s how incredible this young man is, that he can touch people from all over the world to this extent.

    Thank you, San Diego, for nurturing this beautiful soul, developing his gift and allowing him to re-ignite our joy and passion for music.

    I have been anxiously awaiting Adam’s debut CD. Now I have this song to look forward to as well. There is such buzz about this song….I can’t wait!!!

    Adam is doing a wonderful thing by asking his fans to donate to charity in lieu of giving him gifts. The children are our future…nurture them.

    Please go here http://bit.ly/131bPs to donate in support of his OFFICIAL site.

    Adam has won the hearts of so many around the world already. He is not only MEGA talented, he is also gracious, endearing, and a really decent human being. The fact that Brian May went out on a limb to speak to Adam’s recording and his talent speaks moutains. He knows great vocals having worked with Freddie Mercury and being an amazing guitarist himself. Can’t wait for the movie, Adam’s album and especially his solo tour!!! Adam is fiercely charismatic and that combined with phenonemal vocal talent – Watch out!!

    There is so much excitement about Adam. Now that many of us have attended the AI concerts and seen him perform live (I saw him in Newark NJ and Philadelphia) we have seen firsthand that he’s the real deal. What a performer, singer, and also fabulous to look at (icing on the cake). Yes, like the others who posted, I am more than likely going to see a movie I would normally pass by because I want to hear ADAM SING in surround sound at the end. Why do we have to wait to the END to hear Adam? I will wait, but that is my lament!

    I LOVE the part where it says “we here at the Entertainer believe it will launch him into iconic status “. THIS is what Adam’s fans have been feeling since his first audition on American Idol…we KNOW talent, and we have claimed that Adam will be iconic long before Paula said it on the show, and long before industry giants took notice of our lovely Adam! If I had only known about him before the American Idol season last year, I would have been breaking down doors promoting Adam LONG ago. He is incredible! His fanbase is already on a world wide basis, and the growth of that fanbase has not diminished…we see it only growing bigger! It is my hope and dream for Adam that he soars into superstardom as he so richly deserves! Cannot wait for 2012 to come out in theaters and for Adam’s debut album and 1st solo tour! I absolutely adore him and his enormous talent! 🙂

    By the way…I’d like to thank Adam’s parents Mombert, Dadbert, his brother Neilbert (sorry Neil, j/k LOL), Dad’s lovely Amybert and all of Adam’s dear friends who encouraged him to reach for his dreams, and stood with him through the years! You all have given the world a one of a kind gift and are so appreciated!

    I am looking forward to hearing the song and anxioulsy await his album. But while I am a huge Adam fan and think he is so talented I find all the hype a little off putting, he’s a singer not the 2nd coming of Jesus!! And, he’s just starting out but its like if he does not start off his career as an immediate iconic superstar then he’s failed. the media loves to build up only to tear down again……………………hopefully Adam can withstand the onslaugh headed his way………….

    Perfectly normal 30ish woman… reduced to tears just reading these lovely comments about Adam. I’m a fan… have been since he opened his mouth to sing during the audition phase of the compeition. So many of us knew it then and there! Adam’s talent and beauty (inner and outer) are remarkable. I wish him love, happiness and fulfillment! And yes… thank you San Diego for nurturing this wonderful person (and Mombert, Dadbert, Neilbert 🙂

    Just wondering whether people at The Entertainer have listened to the song. I’m really looking forward to the release of this song.

    Thanks for the article. I plan to see the movie just to hear Adam sing. I totally respect Brian May and his praise for Adam is just icing on the cake. Rock on Mr. Lambert.

    There will never be anyone like Adam Lambert. He is truly a gift from heaven; beautiful, kind, loving, giving and born with an innate talent beyond belief. Everytime I hear him sing “Is Anybody Listening” I can’t believe he is of this earth. He is angelic in everyway.

    Well I’m an Aussie and frankly if Adam doesn’t release that long awaited album and 2012 single soon I think I’m going to spontaneously combust. God is it hot in here or what?

    ADAM is unstoppable!!! No matter what the haters do.
    Lucky are those who recognize ADAM for the GIFT he is to the world today and are on his bandwagon to witness ADAM’s emergence as the SUPERSTAR he is and the LEGEND he will be. I, for one, feel blessed, I’m witnessing his STAR shining so brightly and enjoying every second of this journey. I’m so happy I’m taking this exhilarating ride with every glorious note ADAM sings to the whole world. And that I’m singing all the way with him to his success.

    Thank you Ms Leila, for raising and nuturing a future legend: ADAM LAMBERT. My heart melts every time I listen to him sing Ring Of Fire or Feeling Good. Love you, Leila. Love your son to pieces.

    I have read Brian May’s blog many many times already. Every time I read it, I would tear up for some reason. I guess I am just too happy for my dear Adam boy’s bright future. I love him so much and can’t wait for any of his future products.

    If mega bucks have been spent on 2012 then for sure the right song and artist will be picked. Adam Lambert is better off not winning AI. The AI winner Kris Allen was not given an original song and America got it wrong again with Kevin Skinner. The guy can’t sing. I agree with Brian May, this is the beginning for Lambert. We will also being seeing Lambert in movies and broadway. He is multitalented.
