About Melica

Rich, soulful & hypnotic. Melica is guaranteed to wow any crowd and inject energy into every performance! Encore's Top 25 Booked Singer 2021
Singer
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Influenced by like likes of Aaliyah, Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse. After falling in love with music from the age of 5 I continued to study my influences and became mesmerised by their star studded performances. By the age of 12 I began doing local shows, this opened doors to compete in singing competitions throughout my teens. Often struggling with my identity during this time music became the escape for expression and self discovery- on stage is where I’ve always felt at home and blessed to share my gift. In the last few years I have released music of my own, receiving support from the likes of BBC Introducing and 1XTRA. Performing is second nature to me, I've sang across and outside the capital for festivals, at restaurants, weddings and parties.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients enjoy the energy I bring with my performances when performing upbeat songs, and the emotive value I add to slower songs. As well as delivering vocally, clients are always impressed by my personality and ability to interact with the crowd, keep them engaged, and get them moving.

-The Samsung KX (in collaboration with Bacardi) -Mayfair Hotel -The Ritzy -The Hoxton -Sofar Sounds -Grand Sapphire Hotel -Camden Assembly -Lost in Brixton -The Hacha Bar -The Tiki Bar -The Jigsaw Festival -Boxpark Croydon

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Artists that have influenced me both vocally and via their performances include Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, Rihanna, and Amy Winehouse. My passion for music has allowed me to study and attend some of their shows. Their ability to leave their audiences engaged, in awe, and captivated is what I always strive to do as an artist and performer myself.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

-The Samsung KX in collaboration with Bacardi as part of an activation launch. I sang to an audience of over 250 people! -Headlining at the Ritzy

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

That’s fine, I understand that timings may change slightly. If this is the case in the run up to the event please let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes, I can provide a DJ service after my set is complimented via my PA. For this complimentary service, I charge an additional £50 per hour.

How much time do you need to set up?

Before performing I set up my PA and do a soundcheck to get the levels right. This usually takes between 10-12 minutes.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes, you’re more than welcome to choose the pieces I sing from the setlist. My priority is to ensure that the client and the guests are happy and entertained. Picking the right songs to create that environment is the first step.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I perform with backing tracks and bring the relevant equipment.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, I can learn new pieces for your event if given enough time to prepare. If there is a special song you would like me to sing this would be an additional £15

Melica performed as the headlining act at my event. All I can say is wow! She has the type of voice that captivates a crowd. She’s incredibly soulful. She’s a natural on stage and super confident. I look forward to working with her again in the near future.
