You can’t have a name like Melody Star without having a passion for music! At the tender age of 3, Melody starred in her very first YouTube video, singing and playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on the Drums. She also played her first recital in Kindergarten, where she performed a short repertoire of some of her favorite selections on her signature pink Violin. Her talent for learning to play musical instruments has since expanded to the Bass, Guitar, and Keyboard. Today, Melody Star, is a 7-year-old Musician/Entertainer who is enjoying the release of her first Hip Hop Single ON GO, which she co-wrote while developing her alter ego cartoon character – Starchella!
While music is her passion, Melody is no stranger to the worlds of acting and modeling. She has 3 feature film roles and 14 runway shows under her belt. She made her film debut with a cameo appearance in the music visual Ups and Downs. Other feature roles include Indie films Afterbirth and Val. Her biggest film role to date, includes an appearance in several flashback scenes of Don’t You Tell a Soul, a period film starring several academy award winning actors. This fall, Melody will star in the lead role as a young blind Girl in the movie Perception.
Her first time on stage was as a runway model at Brooklyn Fashion Week, at age 4; and, she hasn’t slowed down yet. In fact, Melody has modeled for popular Children’s clothing retailers such as Belk Kids, Dillard’s Kids, and Justice. Her high-end runway show experience includes modeling at exclusive events such as Miami Art Basel and New York Fashion Week. She has also been featured in Dixie Magazine numerous times.
