Meli’sa Early Successes
Her initial chart entry was as the lead singer of the dance group, Shades of Love. They had a single entry on Billboard magazine's Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1982, the #26 "Body to Body (Keep in Touch)". This was re-popularized in 1994 by new remixes, "Body to Body (Keep in Touch)", and reached number 1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. That same year, music entrepreneur Jacques Fred Petrus asked her to join his newly created studio group, High Fashion, that featured Morgan and two other New York vocalists, Eric McClinton and Alyson Williams. High Fashion's sole hit, "Feelin' Lucky Lately", reached #32 on the U.S. Black Singles chart. In 1983 Morgan left, and was replaced in the group by the jazz vocalist, Marcella Allen. As a solo artist she topped the R&B chart with her cover version of Prince's "Do Me, Baby", (the title track from her debut album) which also became her only Billboard Hot 100 entry, peaking at #46 in 1986. She had several solo hits on the U.S. dance chart as well, including "Still in Love With You," which hit #3 in 1992.
After a lengthy hiatus, Morgan released her fifth solo album, I Remember. The first single, "Back Together Again", a song originally recorded by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway, received moderate airplay on urban contemporary radio stations during early 2006 and peaked at number 46 on Billboard's R&B chart. The follow-up singles included "I Remember", "Will You?" and "High Maintenance" which was released in September 2006. New material by Meli'sa Morgan can be heard on a German release by Cool Million, which features Meli'sa Morgan on lead vocals on the opening track Sweet Baby. This proves she is still vocally on top condition.
On the horizons in early 2012 is a new single release. It will be Meli’sa first time going back into the studio to record new music since 2007! “I think it's time.....Don't you? I hope so and I am going to as always give it my ultimate best. I feel stronger and more wiser as a vocalist and this I hope will show in my vocal delivery on this song...Which I think is a smash hit!”
This year has been truly wonderful with Meli’sa performing on Two Cruise Ships - The Royal Caribbean and The Norwegian. Meli’sa performed to over 10,000.00 people in Brooklyn, NY this past Summer. She also performed at The Al Goodman Tribute at The Paradise Theater in the Bronx and at Newark Symphony Hall in New Jersey. As well as performing in Indianapolis, IN for the 100 men Annual Dinner, just to name a few highlights of the year.
2011 year end with shows at The Westin Hotel in Charlotte, NC with Christopher William and Alyson Williams, a private performance in Newark, NJ for Breast Cancer Survivors and New Year's Eve in Long Island, NY.
With an Unsung show on TVOne in 2015, new music on the way & a new team, the future for Meli'sa Morgan promises to be bigger and brighter than ever!
