Melinda Doolittle

Although her third-place finish on American Idol's sixth season introduced Melinda Doolittle to a new audience, the neo-soul singer already boasted an impressive résumé, having spent the better part of a decade singing backup for the likes of Aaron Neville, Jonny Lang, Charlie Peacock, and CeCe Winans. Doolittle was born in St. Louis, MO, and relocated to Nashville during the mid-'90s to attend Belmont University while pursuing a singing career. Already employed as a gifted background vocalist, she auditioned for American Idol in 2006 and earned a place on the show's 2007 season. Doolittle proved to be an especially strong singer during her 13-week run; however, despite receiving near-unanimous acclaim from the judging panel, her reign was cut short one week before the show's finale. She later completed the American Idol summer tour alongside her former competitors (including runner-up Blake Lewis and champion Jordin Sparks) and dedicated significant time to philanthropic efforts, including a trip to Zambia alongside First Lady Laura Bush. While several of her Idol cohorts released albums in 2007 and 2008, Doolittle lay down until 2009, when she emerged with her debut for Hi Fi Recordings. Titled Coming Back to You, the album comprised covers of vintage blues and early R&B standards. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

FANTASTIC!
Melinda released her debut album on February 3rd. It's called "Coming Back to You," and it's available on Itunes and Amazon, in Walmart, and some music stores. She's an incredible performer, and this CD is one you can listen to all the way through. There are no "filler" tracks, just a great blend of neo-soul, jazz, blues, gospel, and gorgeous love songs.
I had never heard of melinda dolittle before, but I really love her voice. I think she has some real talent and look forward to hearing more. I enjoyed "I'm a woman".

incredible vocalist! talent, talent, and talent!
She is the lady from American Idol and I had a hard time choosing my favorite from her and Jordin, but living in AZ I had to support Jordin. I love Melinda's voice and can't wait to buy her first album. Also found that Phil Stacey from the same season got an album out too.
i've heard she's releasing a gritty/retro soul CD summer of 2008, so looking forward to it she rocks
love her voice thought she really should have won, wish her all the luck in her in all her endervosers
Melinda Dolittle -- Is this the young lady that was on American Idol???? The name sounds so familiar. There is no photograph to clarify. The song she sang, "As long as he needs me" was awesome!!
