Bentonville, AR news article (Edy's Tour Stop 7)

Former American Idol Contestant in Northwest Arkansas
Reported by: Carley Gordon

Wednesday, Apr 9, 2008 @11:42pm CST

Wednesday, Melinda Dolittle was in Northwest Arkansas promoting Edy’s five new idol-themed ice cream flavors. One lucky local won a contest sponsored by Edy’s. Her prize was a personal concert from Dolittle.

Fayetteville’s Carla Romere couldn’t contain her excitement when she saw Dolittle pull up to her house. Romere won an online contest, and as her prize, Dolittle performed an in-house mini concert. The winner says she’s loved Dolittle since she first her sing on idol. Romere says, "We never missed an episode, and honest to goodness, we picked Melinda to win."

Romere and twenty-five of her closest friends shared Edy’s ice cream with the idol star, but they were even more thrilled to hear Dolittle perform their favorite songs. Dolittle says she was pumped up about the concert too. She says, "This is the fun part you know, like, this is where I get to hang out try to be as comfortable as possible, even though i get nervous and, you know, just have a really good time."

While Dolittle may be all about her fans and her new Arkansas friends, she says she also enjoys the ice cream. She says, "For some reason I really feel like it helps me sing better, so I always have a bite in between songs.”

When we asked Dolittle who she thinks will win Idol this season, she said, she changes her mind every week, and this week, she’s pulling for Jason Castro.
