Can you tell me what former American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee has been doing?
—Julia Banner, Las Cruces, N.M.
In January, McPhee released Unbroken, the follow-up to her successful 2007 self-titled album. “I really wanted to figure out where I really wanted to be, musically. I wanted this experience to be very hands-on and do a lot of my own writing,” she says. The singer-actress, 26, appeared on the TV shows CSI: New York and Ugly Betty, and in the movie House Bunny. Watch for her in the upcoming film You May Not Kiss the Bride. She is married and lives in the Los Angeles area.
