“When I get to see people appreciate what I’m doing, it makes me feel like I’m doing something right.”– Melonie Gillett
Melonie is one of Belize’s brightest musical gems. Her singular vocals are equally impressive whether wrapped around a poignant ballad, or one of her signature dance cuts. A native of Burrell Boom, she made her singing debut at age eleven. By the age of twenty, she had become a seasoned pro, known nationwide for her appearances on a variety of TV shows.
Her first EP, titled “Rush” with a single of the same name was a bonified hit, garnering critical acclaim and extensive airplay. The reggae-tinged single “Luv Mi” – winner of a Best Music Video award is still featured on a regular basis.
Melonie’s trajectory as a singer/songwriter reached a new plateau with the launch of “The Dreamer”. Melonie has also won the most Music Video awards in the country of Belize for her groundbreaking music videos.
She has shared the stage with well-established international talent including Jamaica’s Konshens and Etana, as well as local stars such as Supa G, The Garifuna Collectives, and Paul Nabor.
