My name is Melanie Lynn Berhorst.
I was born and raised in St. Martins, a small town in MO.
As a child I always sang to the radio and added harmonies.
I also would sing and dance to records with two of my sisters,
we would pretend we were singing to an audience.
I wanted to sing back up with my older sister,
who was recording in Nashville
but I was too young at the time.
By the time I was old enough to sing with her,
she passed away from cancer.
I have the music she wrote
and would like to record some of her songs someday.
I have been singing at church for 15 years
and in public at small gatherings for approximately three years.
I grew up on traditional country music
and a life long dream of pursing a career in this industry.
I have teamed with DJ (Don Joy) approximately a year ago
and since that time I have been to Nashville twice.
We are now Don And Mel, the traditional country duo.
We will have a new CD out shortly.
Don and I have also recorded a tribute album to Wade Jackson,
whom I love dearly.
We have also performed at various venues
and are pursing our dreams with vigor.
Country Music has been my life and I love what I'm doing.
