Like Clay Aiken, Taylor Hicks and Sanjaya Malakar before her, Season 6 Idol, Melinda Doolittle has written a memoir, set to be released on May 4
Via Press Release
Melinda Doolittle, acclaimed recording artist and star of American Idol, believes that her own success and personal joy are directly proportional to her investment in encouraging and nurturing others. This theme is at the heart of her new book, Beyond Me, coming to bookstores nationwide May 4, 2010 and featuring a foreword by American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks.
Doolittle, who became a star on season six of American Idol, shares poignant, often humorous stories, revealing the secrets of her success and giving practical guidance to overcome personal obstacles to achieve the next level in any area of life.
Doolittle adds, “I haven’t just sat back and let life throw at me whatever it will. Instead – and this has been key – I’ve always worked to find my way to life’s next level.”
Idol memoirs tend to be interesting only to their fans. I dig Melinda, but I’m not sure I care enough to read an account of her young life. Melinda will star as The Narrator in an upcoming production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, beginning March 1.
The book will be released by Zondervan, a Christian imprint of the HarperCollins company.
Another Idol memoir will also be released May 4: David Archuleta’s Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song and the Power of Perseverance.
