After quite a few years, I finally have a new song I’m going to release a new song for you all. “Stars” was written over a year and half ago and it is very special to me. My intention with this song are a few. First off, I am releasing it on February 23, 2018, the same day of our benefit concert for Puerto Rico in Appleton, Wisconsin. Our next hurricane relief trip is next month and I want to film the music video there so as to show the beauty that still exists on the island. And lastly, the first month’s earnings of the song will benefit the families I’ve been working with in Luquetti in my hometown of Yauco, Puerto Rico. Below is a 30 second clip of the song. A longer clip will be posted on New Years Day. SO EXCITED!!! Stay tuned! xo Melissa
Hello beautiful people!
As I sit here at my desk after such a long time, I wanted to reach out to let you know that I am doing well and have been indeed working on some things. First off, I have started an organization to help families suffering after the devastation of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. This organization has already been able to raise $2,300 to help over 50 families in Yauco (my hometown) and surrounding areas by bringing much needed supplies. We brought solar light bulbs, solar cell phone chargers, mosquito nets and marigold seeds to repel mosquitoes. Our work is not over. The small community of Luquetti, located in Yauco, has been one of the most hard hit areas in the southwest part of the island. The river next to this community rose to over 5 feet in their homes leaving these families with nothing left. They have lost everything and we are committed in helping them through this difficult time.
I invite you to view our documentary and visit our GoFundMe page to continue to help these families in need. To view our documentary view here:
