McMillan has released three original CDs and collaborated with Grammy-nominated producer Joe Taylor. She performs with the band Melanie and the Bookends.

When she was studying French in Paris, McMillan bought a front row ticket to see Bob Dylan at the Rex Theatre. As she tells it, since she was the only girl in the front row and knew all the words to his songs, Dylan noticed her. And when he sang the lyric, “Are you too good for me, or am I too good for you?,” he winked.

Melanie took that wink as a good omen--a sort of "go ahead" to pursue her dream of playing music professionally.

Hi Meleka,
I am happy to hear that your church wants to perform Bright Star of Bethlehem.I will ask the producer for the sound track and get back with you as soon as possible. What is your email?

You would not be charged for the track. My producer would just mute my vocal and create a file to send you. When do you need it? Melanie
