A shame, that there's music like this and it's hardly known. Melody's music is absolutely perfect. Her voice is to die for.

Her voice is the honey, the purest of smoothness.

This song is freaking amazing

@haroldhill2864

First time I heard her voice and this song, I was swept away and stuck to her like a powerful magnet. I am just so happy she's alive today. "If All The Stars Were Mine' is a great song as well, because she sings it so convincingly and loving.
