Katherine may have not been the Idol winner, which, we think she should have been! I mean, her competition was Taylor Hicks.....still bitter about that. She is such a talent with a voice of gold! Listen to her version of "Over the Rainbow"....mmmm yes, LOVE!
Katherine has been criticized as she dealt with BUT openly admitted dealing with bulimia. As we all know, in today's day and age, the standard girls have to deal with and strive to be is nothing short of impossible. But Katherine persevered through it and now is looking healthier and beautiful. She had a couple hits as a solo artist post American Idol. Here is a video of her song "Love Story". We also LOVED "Over It", a power ballad of divaness.
Recently, we absolutely love SMASH! Being a Marilyn Monroe and Old Hollywood fan, it's hard NOT to love it. The show is the story of the making of Marilyn the Musical. The show combines recent songs and original songs made for the musical. Katherine is Marilyn, almost uncanny how much, at times. Check her out singing "20th Century Fox" as the original diva Miss Marilyn.
Any way you put it, we love Katherine McPhee and cannot wait to see more from her in the future. Cheers to you and keep belting it out diva! We'll let you be OUR star!
