Artist of the Week: Melany Moloney

I have noticed the growing impact of Hispanic musical artists on the Anglo-American music market. Shakira, from Columbia, and Christina Aguilera, who's father is from Ecuador, are just a couple of examples that come immediately to mind. This week, I have selected a lesser known singer, who I recently discovered, Melany Moloney. The 22-year-old beauty describes herself as a "Colombian-Australian" artist. She writes and sings in both English and Spanish. Her work has achieved success in international song contests, like the Canary Islands International Song Contest and a first place finish in the prestigious John Lennon Contest, Latin Category, for 2006. Melany describes her music as Euro-Latin, with a touch of Colombian folklore. She has a lovely, clean voice, that appealed to me the first time I heard it. You can check her out on Myspace, at: .
