Ayla Brown New "Early Show" Special Contributor

Ayla Brown became one of America's most well known single ladies when her father, Mass. Senator Scott Brown, announced that she was "available" during his acceptance speech. However, she's moving into the spotlight again -- on "The Early Show." Brown was recently named a special contributor to the show. She'll report on the nation's youth.

However, the spotlight is nothing new for Brown. She had stint as a contestant on "American Idol." After leaving "Idol," 21-year-old Brown released her debut album "Forward" and a later compilation called "Circles."
Brown even included "The Early Show" among her concert venues when she stopped by the studio in January to sing "No More."

Although Brown says politics are not a part of her future, like her mother, she has gotten into reporting. Brown is currently a senior at Boston College, majoring in communications studies. While finishing her coursework, Brown will also contribute her work to "The Early Show."

Following her father's election, Brown appeared on the show to discuss her father's comments, and "The Early Show" was so impressed with her that she was asked to come aboard.

When not singing, attending school and reporting, Brown also works out on the basketball court as a part of the Boston College's Division I basketball team. Her native Boston read Brown's music reviews when she wrote an "American Idol" column for the Boston Herald.
