Mel Collins- A Voice from a Higher Power
Updated: Mar 23, 2019
Originally from Hacienda Heights, Mel Collins (a preachers kid) refers to herself as the fourth alto to the left in the Church Choir. She says there are huge voices that you will never hear outside of the church, and so it is clear that Mel has something special to offer the world through her voice.
Upon meeting Mel Collins, jazz, big band, and Disney vocalist, you are instantly captivated by her warm, exuberant personality. Her music exudes the same warmth and seems almost effortless, as if her voices comes from a higher power, not something carefully trained and cultivated. She seems blessed and you feel blessed to be around her.
When I asked her if she could only sing one song for the rest of her life, she responded with the Jazz Standard "I can't give you anything but love." This seems appropriate, because, like a warm hug from a friend you haven't seen in years, when Mel sing's you feel like you have been given the gift of love. Enjoy the interview, her live singing, and have a GREAT day -Nicole
