Overview: Hot southern charm & a Houston-bred smile... Mel-O is gonna make you sweat.
No stranger to pressure, Mel-O's first curtain call came when her second-grade teacher gave her a choice: Sing or Detention. Not only did her version of Mary J. Blige's "I'm Going Down" save her from punishment, it caught the attention of her classmates and several teachers. Little Melissa Owens brought down the house and Mel-O was discovered.
After her days of playground concerts & charming her way out of detention, Mel-O moved on to attend Johnston Performing Arts Middle School. Johnston Middle School has educated many prominent artists including another young starlet by the name of Beyonce.
Mel-O began recording with local DJ celebrity "Kiotti". Soon she was playing clubs and writing songs for other artists including "Lil' J Xavier". Mel-O cashed her first ASCAP royalty check at the tender age of 12.
Upon graduating high school, Mel-O travelled to Los Angeles to pursue her dream. She studied audio engineering at Pasaden Artist Site
