Brooke White, the Season 7 fifth place finalist, was the nanny with a kind heart that won over America. Not only was Brooke a talented singer, but she was a talented musician too, playing both the guitar and the piano throughout the season. In fact, Brooke was the first female contestant to play a musical instrument during the competition.
At the start of Season 8, Brooke returned to the Idol stage to perform her new single, “Hold Up My Heart,” from her album “High Hopes & Heartbreak.” The album will hit stores on July 21, 2009. Brooke also walked the red carpet and attended the Season 8 finale just a couple of weeks ago.
Happy Birthday, Brooke!
