Melinda Doolittle KeyNotes GFWC Brentwood Woman's Club Fundraiser

Melinda Doolitte
GFWC Brentwood Woman's Club (BWC) annual Step Up: It's a Charity Affair fundraiser will feature recording artist, Melinda Doolittle, on May 5, 2015. Melinda who became a household name on season six of American Idol continues thrilling audiences with her powerhouse vocals and charm will have dual roles as the club's guest speaker and performer.

In 2013 alone, Melinda was featured on 5 studio albums, including her sophomore release You're The Reason. Her latest album offers listeners a true glimpse into Doolittle as an artist, as she wrote and performed half of the songs on the album. Melinda told the Hollywood Reporter that she approached the album "from the aspect of love. It’s what shapes my life daily. I wanted to be transparent and honest."

BWC's Step Up: It's a Charity Affair fundraiser continues to grow in attendance and has garnered wave reviews throughout Williamson County. The fundraiser supports several endeavors of the club including its educational program. BWC's educational program includes an endowment fund with Columbia State Community College
The Club strongly believes the more scholarships it gives, the more the more opportunities others have to make a meaningful contribution to their communities. Education can assist in the goal to end poverty, attain a better job, improve their quality of life and create a better world.
At the annual fundraiser, the community is also introduced to Brentwood's Woman of the Year. Prior honorees have been Linda Lynch, City of Brentwood Community Relations Director; Joyce Keistler, Director of the Martin Center; Susan Leathers, prior Editor and Co-Owner Brentwood Home Page, Franklin Home Page and BrentWord Communications; Linda Jackson, Executive Director of BRIDGES; Nancy Osman, community volunteer and Director of Ty2 Foundation, and  Jennifer Wolcott, community volunteer with the American Red Cross and the Boys Scout.
