Melissa Rose on her singing background and Las Vegas
KSY: Tell us about your singing background?
MR: I have a very extensive singing background. I attended Bancroft JR. High TV/Film in L.A.,Hamilton High school Academy of Music in L.A., I sing at my church Canyon Ridge Christian Church in Las Vegas and I have also performed The National Anthem for UNLV and LA Clippers at The Staple Center in LA, amongst many other things. My Grandma was a Blues singer so I started young on Venice Beach boardwalk next to Michael Collier and various artist. I did every talent show in school, and even attempted "Hollywood" after graduation. Then I got married/divorced had children and things slowed down drastically
KSY:How is the music scene in Las Vegas?
MR:The music scene in Las Vegas is very vast. There are a lot of opportunities for entertaining but it still is about WHO you know rather than how talented you are and the gigs don't pay very well. Nonetheless, I'd still like a piece of it. Ideally, I'd like to be a recording artist but I can still do lounges and smaller venues. Heck, I will do it all!
