Melinda Doolittle to Lead Charity Concert

at . Comments

To Melinda Doolittle, the Factory at Franklin will seem like a homecoming.

A finalist on American Idol, the Brentwood resident will take the stage once again - and for one night only - in a fundraising concert for the Boiler Room Theater in November.

“We are so excited to have Melinda back with us. It’s such a joy to hear her sing,” said Sondra Morton-Chaffin, a member of the nonprofit theater group.

The event — billed as "Melinda Doolittle and Friends" — also promises some other famous faces backing up the performer.

A Belmont University music major, Doolittle performed with Boiler Room in stage productions such as The 1940s Radio Hour and Big River before appearing on the television show.

The concert begins at 8 p.m. November 9 in The Factory at Franklin’s Liberty Hall. Tickets are $50 in advance or $150 for the first three rows. If any general seating remains the day of the concert, spots will be sold for $100.

All proceeds go to the theater organization that also supports youth programs such as performance workshops, summer camps and three fully-staged children’s productions each year.
