Catch “American Idol” alum Melinda Doolittle this Friday

Melinda Doolittle became a household name during the 2007 season of American Idol. She came in third in the voting, but she placed first with Simon Cowell. The often cantankerous judge called her his “personal favorite.” Doolittle became the sweetheart of the season, winning everyone over with her powerhouse vocals and her personal charm.

Doolittle graduated with a BA in Music from Belmont University in Nashville. She went on to become a highly sought after background vocalist. She sang for numerous musical icons including Michael McDonald, Aretha Franklin, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Aaron Neville and Jonny Lang.
 
In 2009 Doolittle released her debut album Coming Back to You, for which The New York Times hailed her as one of the most “phenomenally gifted” singers in years. Her sophomore album, You’re the Reason, followed in 2013. Doolittle also penned the book Beyond Me: Finding Your Way to Life’s Next Level and was the well-loved co-host of TV Line’s Reality Check

Doolittle continues to thrill audiences everywhere she goes — from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to The White House, and from the Copa Room to Carnegie Hall. In addition, she has been a featured guest with the Boston Pops, the Charlotte Symphony and the United States Air Force Orchestra and was a featured performer at the 2015 Boston Pops Fourth of July Spectacular. She is currently headlining her own soulful show Great American Soul Book

Doolittle performs at 8 PM this Friday, December 6, at The Clayton Center.
