Brooke White first came to Randy Jackson’s attention when she auditioned for ‘American Idol’ in 2008. She made it into the final 12, eventually bowing out in 5th place. However, Jackson was impressed enough by her talent that he continued to work with her. The pair teamed up to record songs for a made-for-TV movie called ‘Change Of Plans’, and the movie title provied to be ironic when Brooke landed a role in the film.
“We were working on music for the movies, that’s really all I chalked it up to be, and it just kind of strangely happened where they were starting to cast for this movie and they were looking for a singer songwriter, then wheels started turning somewhere in someone’s head, and so they called me and said can you audition, and it was way out of left field for me,” Brooke told Fox All Access host Chris Leary. “I wasn’t aspiring to be an actress, I was definitely working on my music thing, working on another record. I was like, you know what, why not just try it.”
‘Change of Plans’ airs on Fox this Saturday at 8/7 Central. Watch the interview with Brooke and Randy via YouTube below.
