As a vocalist, Mela’s five octave range and unique sound are reminiscent of the spirit of a young Etta James or Billie Holiday, the mischievous sensuality & rock edge of Fiona Apple, and the winsome vocals of Adele. The late Gospel great, Andrae Crouch, said of Mela, “…She has the voice of an angel and can break the heart of heaven.” Activist and Comedienne Margaret Cho says, “…Mela’s voice and lyrics are stunning and altogether unforgettable.”
