Sängerin Brooke White

Brooke Elizabeth White (born June 2, 1983) is an American singer-songwriter and was the fifth place finalist on the seventh season of American Idol.

Early life

Brooke Elizabeth White was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and raised in nearby Mesa with three younger siblings (Tyler, Katie and Quinn) and her parents, Brad and Kaylene. She also has family members in Nova Scotia, Canada.

White started singing at age 15 when she tried out for the high school musical, Meet Me in St. Louis, and received the lead role. White graduated high school from Heritage Academy in 2001. She at one time attended beauty school, describing herself as a "beauty school dropout", and stated on Idol that she started doing hair when she was eleven years old. She worked as a nanny and an aspiring singer-songwriter prior to auditioning for American Idol. During her elimination video on American Idol, White stated "It's probably not a secret that I struggled with my own confidence, but I'm stronger than I thought I was and that's a great thing to get out of this."

White currently resides in Van Nuys, California with her husband, David Ray, an accountant. White is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

American Idol


White tried out for American Idol in Philadelphia. She sang "Like a Star" and she received a positive review from all the judges. During her audition, she admitted to never having seen an R-rated movie, prompting Cowell to state that he could "bring her over to the dark side". During the Hollywood week, White performed "Beautiful" by Carole King, accompanying herself on piano. After that performance, judges were quick to point out that Brooke reminded them of a young Carly Simon or Carole King.

Since top 24, White has accompanied herself on guitar for her performances of "You're So Vain", "Jolene" and "I'm a Believer", and on piano for "Let It Be", "Every Breath You Take", "Hero" and "I Am...I Said". Judge Simon Cowell chose White early as one of his four favorites in the competition, along with David Archuleta, Jason Castro and David Cook, when he appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, which aired on March 17, 2008.

During the 1970s week, while White was performing "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon, she stared at Simon Cowell. It caught the judges' attention and received good reviews from them. White performed an acoustic version of "Love Is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar in the next week; it also received good reviews. During the Lennon/McCartney week, she performed "Let It Be", a classic song by The Beatles. It was the most successful performance by her. Randy Jackson said it was a very heartfelt performance and Simon Cowell said it was one of the best of the night, believable and he thought Brooke picked good song choices in the past three weeks. It soon brought her tears of joy.

Andrew Lloyd Webber was impressed the most by White and predicted a big night for her, but three lines into her performance of "You Must Love Me", White apologized, stopped the band, and re-started the song from the beginning. She later explained, "I lost the lyric". Simon Cowell stated that he would have done the same thing, had he been in her situation. It was the first time in the show's history that a contestant re-started a performance after a song had started (She previously started "Every Breath You Take" on an odd note, so she started over right at the beginning). Despite this, she was the third contestant on the April 23, 2008 results show to be named safe.

When White performed "I'm a Believer" and "I Am...I Said" during Neil Diamond week, she changed the lyric, as suggested by Neil Diamond, in the latter song from "I'm New York City born and raised" to "I'm Arizona born and raised" to make the song her own.

White was in the bottom three twice, once on April 2nd after her Dolly Parton song "Jolene" and again on April 16th after her Mariah Carey performance of "Hero". She was eliminated from American Idol on April 30, 2008.
