Born and raised in LA, (lower Akron) in Ohio, Melissa knew she was destined for greatness after watching Veronica of the Archies at the tender age of four. Inspired by her late Aunt Amanda Davies, a successful television, stage and film actress, Melissa began to follow her dreams of singing and acting. Upon moving to New York City Melissa gained recognition in Greenwich Village singing in the best known night spots. Engagements in Atlantic City, San Francisco, Provincetown, MA, Orlando, Tampa, Myrtle Beach, SC, as well as long standing engagements throughout North East Ohio has established her as one of the most sought after entertainers. To her credit Melissa has donated her time and talent generously and tirelessly to raise funds for HIV and HIV related awareness throughout the community. Melissa wishes to thank her family, her daughters, her grandparents, her sister Erin, her Aunt Amanda, and her friends for their love, support and encouragement throughout her career and life. Last but not least thank you to Veronica and the Archies.
