Melinda Doolittle – Coming Back yo You (2009)

Unfortunately some of the powerful voices (Melinda Doolittle, Candice Glover) have been served with albums aimed more at the teen market and poorly produced albums. My favorite singers are Haley Reinhart. and Crystal Bowersox. Haley released a very pop-oriented first album but has gotten better, especially when singing with Jazz bands. She has a new album ‘Better’ coming out in a few weeks. The single sounds like a promising start to the album.
Crystal Bowersox has two albums that are consistently good. So at the moment it’s a tie between Haley Reinhart and Crystal Bowersox.
