One of the most talented and vibrant singers to ever come out of a reality show will be at Mohegan Sun for a free performance and signing on January 31st
UNCASVILLE, CT (January 12, 2009)— Mohegan Sun, along with The Shops at Mohegan Sun and Spin Street, prepares for another exciting live music event. Mohegan Sun will welcome the popular contestant Melinda Doolittle on Saturday, January 31st in The Shops concourse at Mohegan Sun for a live performance at 3:00pm, followed by a signing event by SolToro Tequila Grill at 3:30pm.
This special event will feature a live, free performance in The Shops concourse at Mohegan Sun, followed by a CD and merchandise signing. Doolittle will be autographing copies of her debut album Coming Back To You.
Truth be told, Melinda Doolittle almost didn’t make it to the auditions for the season six reality show. Persuaded at the last minute by a couple of friends who would be auditioning as well, Doolittle agreed and it proved to be a decision she wouldn’t soon forget. Her initial audition received notable praise by the famous judges and she would go on to take third place in a popular season that saw the winner and runner-up places go to Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis; although all three judges exalted her as one of the greatest singers in the history of the show. Her debut album Coming Back To You is set to hit shelves Tuesday, February 3rd but will be available early on the day of this event on Saturday, January 31st, exclusively in Spin Street located in The Shops at Mohegan Sun. Coming Back to You is a highly-anticipated album which will showcase Doolittle’s wondrous vocals reworking some of Soul, R&B and Pop music’s most timeless songs.
