Community Concerts of Rancho Santa Fe (CCRSF) will present Melinda Doolittle in concert on Friday, Jan. 20 at the Village Church Fellowship Hall (6225 Paseo Delicias, Rancho Santa Fe, 92067). Doolittle has wowed audiences everywhere from the White House to the Kennedy Center to Carnegie Hall. A powerful Pop vocalist, Doolittle became a household name in 2007 during season six of American Idol. She came in third in the voting with Simon Cowell calling her his “personal favorite.” She won over fans with her stunning powerhouse vocals and her personal charm. Her debut album, Coming Back to You (2009), garnered rave reviews from critics, including The New York Times which hailed Doolittle as one of the most “phenomenally gifted” singers in years.
Doolittle has been a featured guest with the Boston Pops, Charlotte Symphony and United States Air Force Orchestra to name a few, including a featured performer at the 2015 Boston Pops Fourth of July Spectacular. She is currently headlining her own soulful show, Great American Soul Book.
