Jaclyn Victor is ready for her close-up in Los Angeles.

The vocal powerhouse and former Malaysian Idol winner is set to promote her music in Tinseltown.

A decade after being crowned the first Malaysian Idol, Jaclyn Victor is now ready to take the big leap.

The 35-year-old vocal powerhouse who is best known for her Idol coronation song, Gemilang, is heading to Los Angeles, California, to introduce her latest English single.

The week-long tour, which begins tomorrow, will see Jaclyn promoting Remedy, an uptempo track composed and written by KRU’s Edry and Yusry Abdul Halim respectively, through a series of live performances and media interviews.

According to a press statement released by KRU Music, the release of Remedy “will bring a new dimension to Jaclyn’s musical direction. With a fusion of mainstream pop melody and lyrics, an R&B style of vocal delivery, coupled with an EDM (electronic dance music) music arrangement, Remedy has all the elements of a hit single and a comprehensive plan has been devised by KRU Music to break the single internationally.”

The local music label, of which the Ikut Rentakku singer has been signed to since 2012, also plans to release the single worldwide in over 80 digital platforms on July 10.

To follow up, a five-track EP, Unleashed, is slated to be released in September. Produced by Edry, the album features four other tracks – Pinnacle, Sweeter Than A Dream, Over And Over and Delirious.

The album was fully recorded in Kuala Lumpur, and mixed and mastered in Los Angeles.
