The soul singer from the sixth season of the hit Fox series said both she and her 5-year-old daughter Brionne are eager for Sunday's wedding, People magazine reported Saturday.

"I'm very excited," the 28-year-old singer told People. "My daughter Brionne is the flower girl, and she woke up this morning and said, 'We have (a few) days, Mommy, and then I can put on my dress.'"

Jones said while she failed to win the televised singing contest, the popularity she earned from being on 'Idol' earned her a role in a Broadway production of "The Color Purple" and enabled her to create her first solo album, due out in stores Oct. 21.

"I am glad to be me," Jones told People. "I may not have won 'American Idol,' but I have won because I'm able to provide a better life for me and my daughter and that's all I've ever wanted."
