Through poignant, often humorous stories, you will discover the secrets to Melinda's success, finding practical help to overcome your own obstacles to achieve the next level in any area of life. Because she was tone deaf as a child, Doolittle's choir director would plead with her to just move her mouth and not let any sound come out. Undaunted, her love of singing drove her to enter a contest in the seventh grade and, miraculously, she won.
Melinda began to realize that success in life was something bigger than her - or, as she puts it, It's beyond me! She began setting and systematically reaching her goals, such as singing background vocals for many of her favorite music artists. Then, by an amazing turn of events, she burst onto the music scene with her flawless vocal performances on American Idol - becoming the clear favorite of the show's most difficult judge, Simon Cowell. Beyond Me also provides you a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of one of America's biggest pop-culture phenomenons, American Idol, and how Melinda turned that stress-filled environment into a springboard from which she could soar.
