I thought I'd bring this thread back up, if anybody has new messages for Melinda in light of the new album.

Hi Melinda,

You may not read this, but I want to let you know how much I enjoy hearing you sing.  I never watched American Idol before Season 6.  That season was the first time I got the "Idol Search" bug, and I saw your audition.  I knew you would be a great pick for the public to hear and was quite disappointed after you were voted off.  I want to say you sang your farewell with style and grace.  Your music reminds me of Motown in the day, and your voice touches my soul when you sing.  I d/l your songs from American Idol that season, and enjoy it always.  I recently purchased your new cd and I'm not disappointed.  I would love you to compose a blues cd, Etta James, Billie Holiday; you know where I'm going with this.  Maybe even a compilation of Broadway tunes, similar to the one Queen Latifa recorded not to long ago.  Well, I'm thrilled for you in your accomplishments, and you are now a "HEAD-LINER"!!!   Thanks for the music!
Sincerely,
Deb Ohaver

Desiree

Melinda,

Are you familiar with Sarah McLachlan's song Angel?

Sarah McLachlan revealed on Vh1 storytellers that the song "Angel" was about the toll that being on the road takes on an artist.  She said that she was reading an article about heroin in the music indusry (specifically about one member of The Smashing Pumpkins), and the only way she could react to that was by writing "Angel."  She said it's mostly about the loneliness felt on tour as an artist, and how you are so far away from daily life, you need something to console you and keep you occupied. Sarah says that for some people that might be the comfort of reading a book or taking a bath, but for some it may be heroin or drug use.

My wish for you is that you find peace and comfort in the arms of the Angel.  Tonight and every night.   Big hug


Sarah McLachlan — Angel lyrics

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it ok
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
They may be empty and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the Angel fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of your Angel; may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here

You're in the arms of your Angel; may you find some comfort here
