“Like a young Tina Turner, she can go from a slinky purr to a mighty, gospel-charged growl… Melinda Doolittle will keep you coming back for more.” –People Magazine

American Idol star and powerhouse vocalist Melinda Doolittle returns to the stage to celebrate the release of her sophomore album You’re the Reason. As in her latest album, Doolittle dissects the topic of love from every angle. In an evening running the musical gamut from blues to Broadway, Melinda exhibits why The New York Times raves, “Ms. Doolittle has a voice that inspires trust… a stylistically adroit, phenomenally gifted singer.”

Featuring original compositions premiering live for the first time, hilarious stories, and Idol songs that started it all, Melinda explores what keeps her on the journey through lyrics and life… it must be love.
