Pharrell and Jermaine Dupri hosted a coming out party to welcome their new artist Leah LaBelle to New York City last night. Mariah Carey and L.A. Reid showed their support for the Seattle singer, who will release her debut album on I Am Other/So So Def/Epic Records.

Guests dined on crispy rice cakes and herb roasted branzino at seafood restaurant Catch, while catching up with the Season 3 “American Idol” contestant.

“An EPIC moment at my dinner tonight,” tweeted Leah, whose debut single “Sexify” was produced by Pharrell. “I can’t even express my joy.”

    I waiting for the new Mariah Carey album. I cant wait for her debut album, seem Mariah support her, she doesn’t show support unless she really digs that person music.

    It should have been a 3 way showdown at the end of her season with her, Fanny, and J hud… And as the years go by more and more I think Leah should have won.

    About time you doin big things girl!

    This whole week I’ve been in love with Sexify. I can see this girl going places. And it’s funny that she was with Mariah because I just thought about how much Sexify sounds like I’m That Chick.

    I’ve been a Leah fan since Idol, I remember being so sad at 14 when she was eliminated first from the Top 12. LOL
    She has a really special tone and voice quality that has to be catered too, and I think JD and Pharrell can pull it off. A female voice in the industry today comes a dime a dozen, so many sound the same, so many can do the same things vocally…however Leah Labelle has a different voice and certain records need to be made specially for it.


  14. HellYeah

    DOPE! She already looks like a superstar on camera.
