This weeks Flashback Friday song belongs to actress, singer, songwriter, and star of NBC’s Smash – Katharine McPhee. The 29-year-old songstress first blessed us with her vocal talent as a contestant on season five of American Idol. Kat finished in second and we were later treated to her still fabulous self-titled debut studio album in 2007. “Over It” was unfortunately the first and only hit single from the record, it spent 16 weeks on the Hot 100 and peaked at No. 29. The song was your typical scientifically-engineered-break-up pop song at the time but Kat‘s voice always soared and it was a shame she was dropped shortly after the release of second single “Love Story“. All that is in the past though – Katharine is a legit actress now and is just months away from reviving her music career with the release of a new album via Columbia Records. According to THR, the album, due out this fall, will feature songwriting collaborations from Linda Perry, Salaam Remi, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and Sia. Exciting stuff – get hyped!
