It's Your Love!!!
« on: July 14, 2009, 05:08:29 am »
One of my favorite memories from my American Idol experience was the day that I found out there was a group of people dedicated to giving me their support throughout my journey. It was so humbling and so awesome and I was SOOOO excited! So, I did what any really excited person would do...I called my Mommy.  Well DUH

My mommy was, of course, just as excited as I was, but with a catch. She wanted us to pray for “supporters” instead of “fans”. I had no idea what she was talking about until she explained that her take on fans was that they can be fickle and turn on you in a second, but supporters will have your back no matter what. I immediately jumped on the idea, knowing that I would do plenty of stupid stuff that would cause the normal person to run, but if there was a group of wonderful people that had my back, I would be okay. Imagine my surprise, when the group that we had been praying for decided to name themselves “Melinda’s Backups”!!! It was so perfect! Clapping

That being said, you all are honestly answered prayer for me. I never imagined that a group would not only have my back, but also have my heart. I could not do this without you and I never even want to try. Thank you for everything you have been for me so far and I look forward to more great times with you in the future.

And with that in mind, here’s a new video that shows this amazing support group working together to take my dreams and make them bigger than I ever imagined. Thank you for being My Backups. I love you! World Hug
