With a voice that transcends not only genres but generations, it is fitting that Melinda Doolittle came back as a special guest performer for the third time with our friends at The Boston Children’s Chorus.

We sat with Ms. Doolittle just before the BCC’s final performance of the season at the iconic Wang Theater. The theme for this concert was “Lift Every Voice,” with gratitude and celebration of the women in our lives - past, present and future.

While Chuck was taking the day off celebrating two young women in his life as they performed in dance, Ronnie was joined by friend and ATB guest co-host Ike Walker. Ike and Ronnie had the honor to share the mic with a couple of super women of the future, their own daughters and BCC singers, Izzy and Abby.

Melinda is a highly sought after background vocalist singing for musical icons including Michael McDonald, Aretha Franklin, Aaron Neville and Jonny Lang. She was introduced to millions of listeners and viewers on American Idol in 2007 and she brought the house down.

She has sung at the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame and The White House and has been a guest at Boston Pops and a featured performer at the 2015 Boston Pops Fourth of July Spectacular.

She is currently headlining her own soulful show Great American Soul Book.
