Tone deaf as a child, Melinda’s choir teacher begged her not to sing out loud. Undaunted, Melinda’s love of singing drove her to enter a talent show in the seventh grade—where she stunned the audience with her miraculously spot-on vocals and beautiful voice. Melinda went on to earn a music degree from Belmont University. She worked as a highly sought-after background vocalist before becoming a household name during season six of American Idol (2007). Melinda has multiple albums and a book (Beyond Me: Finding Your Way to Life’s Next Level) to her credit. She is currently the co-host of TV Line’s Reality Check.
