I'm currently listening to her album for the first time. 8 songs down, it's really good. It's not my usual genre but Melinda is really GOOD.

:eek I really like Melinda! Where did you get her album?

03-06-2009, 05:02 PM
It's been out Feb 3 2009. That's around a month ago, such a shame she isn't getting any publicity. I have Jordin's and Blake's as well but this is by far the best and most solid.

Sorry to bump, but I remember being in tears when she was eliminated. Definitely the best singer American Idol has seen.
