Naima Adedapo Opens Up About Her Family on American Idol
For her March 16th performance American Idol’s Season 10 finalist Naima Adedapo performed the hit Tina Tuner song, “What’s Love Got To Do With It” to reflect the week’s theme of performing songs in your birth year. In Naima’s case she was born on October 5, 1984. Naima worked with costume designer Soyon An to pull off her funky performance outfit. And I quote Soyon: We picked this because we wanted to keep the funky cool edge of Naima and make it a little rock in roll. She loves color!” Completely agreed!
