Cincinnati Loves Melinda Doolittle?

Did you see the Cincinnati signs in the "American Idol" audience tonight for Melinda Doolittle? Anyone recognize the people, or know anything about them?
Two African-American women held one sign that read: "Cincinnati Loves Melinda Doolittle."
An African-American man held another that read: "Cincinnati Family Recruits Melinda For 2007 Idol." The sign was doctored, with the word "Family" over another word that was whited out.

We do know that Doolittle has a Hamilton connection. Her father was born and raised there, and went to Miami University, and then left the area. His parents -- Melinda's grandparents -- lived in Hamilton for 50 years, until moving to Illinois about a year ago.

Did you see the people holding the signs on TV tonight? Know anything about them?

Melinda has a close relative (Raymond Dukes) who is employed in the Environmental Services Department of the VA Hospital in Cincinnati...signs of support are posted in that department. He may be of some help.

I saw the signs and I was wondering if the male in the group could be her dad. In this week's People magazine, it shows a picture of him. I couldn't tell if it was him since I watched it live and didn't record it. We do love Melinda! She rocks! (even though I'm from NKY)
