Melinda is a Chicago native who made her Civic debut in last season's production of Disney's The Little Mermaid. Her love for vocal performance started as a child. Her mother encouraged her by enrolling her into the Chicago Children's Choir, and the Conservatory of Music. Her energy, passion, and vocal diversity is a perfect match for her current role as Asaka in Once On This Island.
