Melinda Doolittle: Love 101

Melinda Doolittle, a backup singer who placed third in season six of American Idol, is finally stepping into the spotlight, infusing her well-trained vocals with real warmth and old-fashioned class. Always at her best when performing classic American pop, she now previews songs from her upcoming sophomore CD in a return engagement at the Loews Regency, where she made an excellent New York cabaret debut in 2009.
