ABOUT ME

Melissa Bel has been captivating audiences and listeners her whole life. After a fateful night in Vegas in October 2015, Toronto-bred Melissa Bel followed her heart and took the leap to move to rural England with her new found love. Her latest album, 'In The Light', which was released on 4th November 2016 and reached #49 on the iTunes Canada Top 200 Pop chart, tells the story of this journey.

Melissa is a seasoned performer. She has headlined her own German tour, opened sold out shows in New York and London, and toured internationally as a backing vocalist for Francesco Yates. In 2015, Melissa reached the finals of Quebec TV's The Voice (La Voix), and now performs regularly in the UK and Canada.

Acoustic guitar in tow, Melissa performs regularly as a solo act but can also perform as a duo, trio, or full band. Her extensive setlist of cover material ranges from Adele to The Beatles to Ed Sheeran to Dolly Parton, and set lists are tailored to each individual event. In most cases, if you'd like to hear a song at your event that is not already in Melissa's repertoire, chances are she can learn it!

Melissa is incredible. She sang at our wedding, she made the whole experience leading up to the day feel so personal, it felt like she was one of our guests at the wedding. Her singing and guitar playing were absolutely stunning. Melissa was one of the real highlights of the day for everyone, especially us. Incredible, very talented, very special.

Booked Melissa Bel for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

Melissa Bel has once again outdone herself. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank her for touching everybody with her beautiful and phenomenal voice. It was a wonderful experience working with Melissa, from the planning and designing of our ceremony and cocktail music, to her incredible performance on the day of. She was definitely a highlight of the day! Our wedding would not have been the same without her. I will forever play her beautiful rendition of "You've Got the Love" in my head, as I walked down the aisle. This was one of the happiest moments of my life.

Friday, August 12th was the hottest day on the planet, and Melissa rose to the occasion. She didn't let the 44 degree celsius heat wave and rain stop her from doing what she does best - she didn't skip a beat!

From the very beginning, we knew Melissa was our gal. She understood our vision, and how we wanted the music to reflect the feeling and mood of our wedding day. Melissa was appreciated and adored by all of our guests, and I would highly recommend her for any wedding or event - you won't be disappointed! Her musical talents will blow you away, and I wish her the best of luck in her career.
