Melanie Fiona Sends New Message To Fans
Wussup world! Just sending a special message to keep you up to date on what’s going on and going strong in my life.
I kicked off 2010 with a major dream come true…opening for Alicia Keys on her North American and European tour. It was honestly the perfect journey to promoting my debut album The Bridge, and to help prepare me for the next phase in my career. I learned so much about myself as a person and as an artist. Every city I went to offered something different, and I was able to make so many new fans around the world. It was surreal to see people singing and dancing to my songs in massive arenas, night after night. It is truly one of the best highlights of 2010. It has given me tons of inspiration to take it to the next level.
Fresh off the tour, I find myself back in the studio working on my sophomore album, The MF Life. Keeping it true to my sound, I’ve been creating amazing songs (once again) with Andrea Martin, J Fenix, and working with dream producers like…well, you’ll see. I also wrote a song with and featuring John Legend! I want this album to reach further and dig deeper into the person I am now.
I’ve also established The Purple Heart Foundation. A charitable organization that will focus on raising awareness and support for the benefit of various female causes. I feel so passionate about the good that can be done to help others, it has to start with me. I will keep you posted on the latest developments and ways you can get involved to help promote and honor strength and courage in your own community.
In the meantime, my acoustic EP featuring songs off The Bridge is available now, a raw live recording…just me and a guitar. I hope you guys enjoy.
I’m also featured in the new Rocawear Campaign—NEXT. Myself and Trey Songz will be featured in various magazines from Fall 2010 through Spring 2011 and I have a billboard in NYC’s legendary Times Square. Pretty Dope!
