My name is Melinda Burgin and I am 16 years old. Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I have always enjoyed participating in choirs and local theater productions. I was drawn to Skokie Idol as a way to explore singing solo in a way that I never had, and a perfect combination of my love for learning new music and my competitive spirit. One fun fact about me is after years of avoiding team sports, this year I became an avid badminton player on my school team!
1) Redo Song
by Willie Nelson
I took the judges feedback to heart, and while practicing I focused not only on pitch and timing but movement and conveying the emotions and storyline of the song.
2) Judge's Choice
Superboy and The Invisible Girl
music by Tom Kitt, lyrics by Brian Yorkey
I think the judges chose this song for me not only because it fit my vocal range, but also because it gave me the opportunity to play a part, not just sing a song.
by Andra Day
I felt that the uplifting message of this song was something we could all use during such a difficult time. I also thought that the dramatic sound definately qualified as a Show Biz Finish.
