Music is and always has been a passion of Mel's. A good way to sum up his thoughts relating to his music lies in a quote from the famous Greek philosopher Plato, who spoke these words over 2,300 years ago: "Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form." The meaning of these words written so long ago haven't changed...they still apply today. This is Mel's philosophy as well.
Mel is fulfilling his lifelong passion and dream, to sing a song...his way. When recently asked why he waited so long, he jokingly replied: "I was waiting for my voice to develop." Yeah, right Mel. Often joking around, he does have a serious side...when creating and performing his music. He went on to say: "I truly believe there is a time, a reason, and a season for everything. I hope to be an inspiration to everyone, and to show that it's never too late to fulfill your dreams. So, never look back, always look forward, and put your heart into everything you do."
He enjoys the personal touch on stage - mingling with his audience whenever possible...a touch, a comment or a laugh to be shared by all. Mel is a genuine "people person". When you combine that trait, plus the feeling that he is completely at home on stage - entertaining - it's likely you'll leave the show feeling a connection with this performer...and probably humming a tune or two.
Mel has said that he would thoroughly enjoy meeting the actor one day - "It would be a real high. I'm sure we'd get along great and who knows, we could probably work on a project together somewhere, sometime, and have a lot of fun doing it." At one time, Mel was actually interested in an acting career, but his love of singing and relating to people in a live audience venue was what he preferred and chose to pursue.
Music is Mel's destination, and he's finally arrived. So, welcome to
you'll definitely enjoy your stay!
