Melenda Baptiste’s love of singing started very young when she’d follow the sound of her grandmother’s singing throughout the house. Embarking in a life of singing from age six, Melenda started with choir, then progressed to musicals and singing competitions, where she earned the highest of praises, during her formative years. Growing up, she soaked up as much music everywhere she went. That diverse background is the reason that her shows in Second Life can run the gamut from Radiohead covers to jazz standards and Etta James. Some might characterize her as a quiet wallflower at first, and some may even find her voice to be tender as well. But make no mistake, Melenda’s voice is capable of belting out something powerful.
Continuing to sing, on and off, with several choir groups since growing up, Melenda has just recently made the leap to the live music scene here in Second Life. Currently, her shows are performed to backing tracks. But rest assured, she’s hard at work learning guitar, though she jokingly says one of the small road bumps is learning to tame an unwieldy, large guitar. She is forever grateful for the people that have helped gently push her down this path and she hopes that you enjoy the music. ~Written by Garrett Lutz~
