Tyler Graves hosts the Moments With Melinda Show on blog talk radio, and he interviewed Melinda Doolittle Sunday afternoon. Most exciting, he world-premiered her upcoming single “It’s Your Love” to be released to radio in October. Listen to a short snip right here!
Isn’t that fabulously retro? Hearing the song here in mono reminds me of listening to the great Top 40 stations in the 60’s.
Melinda tells an interesting story about how she came to sing “It’s Your Love.” The song was originally part of the Motown catalog, but when Motown split up, half the catalog went with Berry Gordy’s partner and became what’s known as the Shrine catalog. Melinda’s label, Hi-Fi Recordings, now own the catalog. And apparently, there more from where that came from…
She says her favorite song on the album is an old Johnny Mathis song called “The Best of Everything”.

On a side note: Melinda says LaKisha Jones wedding was amazing, and that it was great to see Sanjaya Malakar, Haley Scarnato and Gina Glocksen again.
