Emily West's first release with Sony Masterworks, and her first after finishing as runner-up on the 2014 season of America's Got Talent, All for You opens with a refined cover of Sia's "Chandelier," a song she performed on the talent competition show. Other covers from the show include the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satan," the Phil Phillips classic "Sea of Love," and Roy Orbison's "You Got It." Tenderly delivered, and mostly piano/keys- and strings-accompanied ballads, West leaves behind the country of her early releases and opts for a more classic pop vocal delivery. She's joined by Cyndi Lauper on a duet version of "True Colors," and the album's four original tunes include the Billie Holiday-haunted "Fallen," co-written with K.S. Rhoads (Kris Allen, Katie Herzig).
