The next Idol I've decided to feature is Mikalah Gordon. She came in 11th place on the 4th season of Idol. She was my favorite from the season and I was so bummed that she didn’t make it into the top 10 so that she could go on tour! She is mostly known for her comparison to Fran Drescher and she actually had a guest appearance of Fran Drescher’s sitcom Living with Fran. After that, Tyra Banks hired her as a Tyra Show correspondent, but I’m not sure how long that lasted. She was the co-host of American Idol Extra for the first 2 seasons. That show was on the Reality Channel and it went behind the scenes of Idol every week. She was a contestant on Gone Country 2 on CMT. I also remember reading somewhere a few years ago that she got a vocal coach and she actually got rid of her nasally sounding voice.
Here is a picture of Mikalah back in 2005 at the season finale of season 4 of Idol and then the one on the right was taken in 2010. She was only 17 when she went on Idol and she is now 23!
I searched for her on iTunes and I found a song called “Perfect World” that she did with her dad, Rocky Gordon. I actually heard this song before because I have this DVD of her singing in Las Vegas before she was on Idol and she sang that song. I forget how I got that DVD though.
Well, I guess that’s about all there is to say about Mikalah. I guess she doesn’t have a record deal because I couldn’t find anything saying she did. All I found was wikipedia saying that she is working on an album. I would love to hear more from Mikalah in the future, but I don’t think that is going to happen any time soon.
