A favorite of both fans and the show's judges, White will join her fellow Idol Top Ten finalists on tour this summer.

Musicians Institute voice alum Brooke White brought her bright smile and enough musical sunshine to American Idol's second Beatles Night to earn her a coveted spot in the competition's Top Ten.

By winning America's heart with her earnest rendition of George Harrison's "Here Comes The Sun," the Mesa, Arizona native also secured her place alongside her fellow Idol top ten finalists this summer on the show's annual national tour.

A check of the comments in the viewer forums on the American Idol website reveals the way the singer is capturing hearts across the country. One fan writes, "Is it her sincerity when she sings? Her beautiful, captivating smile? Her quirky, sweet personality? I'd have to say it's all of the above and more. She's the real deal, she's super cool, and really connects with the music she is singing."

Others echo the sentiment: "Brooke, thank you for bringing the sweet breeze of real music to this pop-heavy competition." "I think Brooke is extremely talented. Aside from being a charming young beauty, her voice is impeccable."

And: "I love everything about Brooke. Her voice is unique, she is a pure soul, and she seems like such a kind and humble person. Brooke is someone who I feel won't let the spotlight change who she is."

The previous week, White earned the praises of the notoriously hard to please judge Simon Cowell with her transcendent piano and vocal performance of "Let It Be." He said, "I thought, Brooke, it was again one of the best performances of the night…a brilliant choice of song…three weeks running now…great!"

An exciting representative of the caliber of vocalists and musicians at the Hollywood, California based music school, White continues the exciting connection between MI ( and American Idol that began with the success of Season Three finalist LaToya London.

Since opening its doors in 1977, Musicians Institute has primed over 20,000 musicians, producers, engineers, vocalists and industry professionals for successful careers in every genre of contemporary music. Located just blocks from the Capitol Records tower, MI has an incredible history of innovation dating back to its origins in 1977 as the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT), which broke new ground as a performance-based contemporary music school taught by working professionals. Within a few years, GIT was joined by bass and drum programs to form Musicians Institute and the evolution has continued to this day with degree and certificate programs for career-minded guitarists, bassists, drummers, vocalists, keyboardists, recording engineers, independent producers, guitar makers, music business professionals and filmmakers.

The MUSICIANS INSTITUTE is our interest.
