“Life is a Journey, enjoy it” is one of Melika’s favorite quotes. Her life has truly been an amazing journey. Originally from Arkansas, Melika lived in New York City for 20 years and now, she currently lives in Memphis, TN. Over the years, she has inspired others through her gift of music and perseverant spirit.

As a licensed professional counselor, educator, entertainer, mentor, transformational keynote speaker, and author, Melika believes her life is the message.

Melika’s Arkansas roots influence her music. Her musical style is a mixture of blues, country, soul, and gospel. She is unapologetically original. Melika writes from her heart because she does not know any other way. If she does not connect with it, she cannot be honest in her performance. She lives and feels every word and wants to bring her audience into her reality.

Music is a healing tool and Melika uses it to help bring love, joy, hope, and peace into other’s hearts. “I was created for this purpose and my life’s journey is to pour my life out so that others can feel the love of Christ.” Melika believes her music and her life goes hand in hand.
