This autobiography is about of one the most unforgettable, selfless contestants to ever grace the stage of American Idol. Melinda Doolittle, from season 6 had an insprational journey to get herself where she is today. Although she only made it to top ten, she sang her songs with all her heart and touched many souls with her sweet sounds. Her life was not always easy, she was poor growing up, and says that God has gotten her through every obstical life brings. Praying is her answer to everything. When Melinda was a young teenager, she auditioned for the grammer-school chior. They let her in because of her charisma, but said she was not good enough to sing; they asked her to lip-synch so that her voice would not be heard. Melinda was not offended by this, she was just happy to be apart of the music. One day, when she was in a shoe store, Melinda heard Whitney Houston on the music system and she has been her inspiration ever since. Melinda wanted to sing in a talent show but no one believed in her except her mother. She prayed and prayed and when she got on stage a beatiful voice rang out shocking everyone in the audience. After that, she was asked by Roz Thompson to be a back-up singer. Her phone started ringing off the hook and she soon became a professional backgroud singer. Then, she tried out for American Idol season six, and made it into the top ten. "without God...I'm tone deaf," Melinda said.
1) Would you have been insulted to be asked to lip-synch in a chior? Would you quit the chior if they asked you to do that?
2)Would you have the nerve to sing alone in a talent show knowing you've been shut down many times before then?
