In an "American Idol" season long ago and far away, a fair maiden named Brooke White delighted audiences with her creamy complexion, long blonde locks and strong voice. However, she was booted off with several weeks left in the competition never to be heard of again...until now.
On July 21, White will release "High Hopes & Heartbreak " on June Baby Records, a label formed by White, "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson and White's manager Carl Stubner. In a first for Jackson, he also executive produced the album and is co-managing White. If it's good enough for Simon Fuller, it's good enough for Jackson.
White, a season seven contestant, sounds like a beauty contestant, saying in a statement: "If there was one valuable lesson that I learned from my 'Idol' experience, it would be to remain true to myself, even if that means going down the road less traveled and taking a few risks."
Pop quiz! Who won season seven? The answer is at the end of this item.
White, whom Carly Simon declared her favorite contender after she heard White sing her classic "You're So Vain," co-wrote the songs on her album.
Season seven winner: David Cook.
