Pops ‘Idol’: Former Tulsan Melinda Doolittle to play with OKC Philharmonic – “It is crazy to me that 11 years have passed, and people still come up to me and say, ‘I’m still mad that you got voted off,’ or things like that. It’s so amazing because ‘American Idol’ was such a pop culture sensation at that time, but it stays with people.
