R&B pop singer, Melanie Fontana from CT, and long-time Trod Nossel (http://www.trodnossel.com) client, has been hard at work to make her mark in the industry. Today, she is officially on the map.
Pop mega-sensation, Justin Bieber, released his holiday record today, "Under The Mistletoe," which includes a track written by Fontana and her team of songwriters she's been working with in L.A. The track, entitled, "Home This Christmas," is a duet by Justin Bieber featuring The Band Perry. The street date for Beiber's release is November 1, 2011.
Melanie has been part of the Trod Nossel family since she was a young teen, coming in to record her first song with her Mom, Janis. She has done a significant amount of recording since then back at Trod Nossel whenever she's in town, and other studios in her travels. Studio work at Trod Nossel includes singing a few publishing demos for the Trod Nossel catalog on a few songs written by one of the Trod Nossel Studios owners, Darlene Cavalier. "Even at that young age, she innately conducted herself as a consummate professional,"
Her tenacity was evident when she performed at the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem, won the first round, but got boo'd off stage for the TV round, but a brief setback wasn't enough to stop her from moving forward with her career full force. From there she traveled between NY and LA, even doing two long runs singing on the Carnival Cruise lines. As creatively frustrating that might have been for Melanie, she kept it up, and at the end of it all her vocal skill was fine-tuned for her to deliver her bold, soulful, 5-octave range to her audiences, from coffee houses to MTV and everywhere in between.
Fontana could very well follow in the footsteps of other notables whose careers were launched by placing that first song such as Kara DioGuardi, Diane Warren and The Messengers.
