Katharine McPhee

Though Taylor Hicks' quirky soulfulness made him 2006's American Idol, runner-up Katharine McPhee's classic good looks and voice and affinity for traditional pop made her a strong contender throughout the season. In fact, she was one of the first semifinalists to make it to the final 12. A native of Sherman Oaks, CA, McPhee began singing at age two. Her mother, Patricia McPhee, is an established singer in her own right, performing and recording as Peisha McPhee. She helped Katharine develop as a vocalist and gave her more formal training than many American Idol hopefuls receive. Though McPhee sang and acted throughout her childhood and high-school years, she began taking singing more seriously in college, attending Boston Conservatory as a musical theater major. After three semesters, however, she left for Los Angeles to audition for film and television work. McPhee scored roles in the film Crazy, a musical about Hank Garland, and an MTV series, You Are Here, which didn't make it to the air. She also appeared in productions of Annie Get Your Gun and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir before auditioning for American Idol in 2005.

Once McPhee made the final 12, her performances of songs such as "Someone to Watch Over Me," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" made her one of the favorites of American Idol judges and viewers. After the American Idol season ended, McPhee was signed by show creator Simon Fuller's 19 Recordings Limited label and released her first single, Somewhere Over the Rainbow/My Destiny; it became the second best-selling single of 2006. That summer, after bouts with bronchitis and laryngitis, she joined the rest of the finalists and Hicks on the American Idols LIVE! tour and also toured with Andrea Bocelli, who appeared on American Idol as a guest judge. McPhee began recording her self-titled debut album in the fall, working with collaborators such as Timbaland's production partner, Nate "Danja Hand" Hills, Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, and songwriter Kara DioGuardi. "Over It," which was written by the songwriting team of Billy Steinberg, Josh Alexander, and Ruth-Anne Cunningham, arrived a few weeks before Katharine McPhee was released in early 2007. In 2010, McPhee returned with the holiday-themed album Christmas Is a Time...To Say I Love You. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

move. And. Too.
A couple of her cover songs from SMASH are amazing! Shake it Up and Brighter Than the Sun show her fun side and her talent to sell a song.
The most beautiful rendition of Over The Rainbow I've ever heard!! :)
SHE HAS IT ALL THE TOTAL PACKAGE
I like her songs from Smash. The show isn't on her pandora biography. She was amazing in the hallmark movie In my dream as well.
two words, TALENT BABY!

When Harry moved two towns over, I knew we would never get to enjoy music like this anymore. Harry always made the sun feel like it was shining a little brighter. I miss her.
She is PRETTY!
Totally agree...she can sing, dance and act! Love her in SMASH.
This girl is seriously so underrated!
omg i love you in smash its like you are the reincarnatio n of marilyn monroe such a shame smash is not coming back me and all my friends and my whole school love it now what am i suposed to watch
Her duet with Andrea Bocelli singing The Prayer is a stunning recognition of her vocal talent.Googl e it. It's probably the BEST duet of that song I've heard including C. Dions version. She's undervalued in the industry and should be a cross talent, looks, acting ability and a songstress. She's a triple threat. SMASH is proof of it.
luv u in smash
Beautiful Voice singing an all time favorite..

Somewhere Over The Rainbow - a really beautiful rendition!
Katharine McPhee is proof that (sometimes) it's better not to win. She has a beautiful voice and a fine career ahead of her.
