ThisisRnB Nights: Melanie Fiona Performs Private Show in Los Angeles


The extremely talented, and often underrated, Melanie Fiona partnered with Verizon for a special private show on Friday night at The Montalban Theater in Los Angeles.

The soulful songstress has been away from the spotlight for quite a while (at least in today’s standards), so it was great to see Mel back on stage, and exciting to hear some of the new music she has been working on for her anticipated third album.

Following an unfortunate technical difficulty with the theaters stage curtain, the Canadian singer-songwriter hit the stage with her band and put on a great show. Treating the audience to many fan favorites such as “4 AM,” “Give It to Me Right,” “Wrong Side of a Love Song” and “Fool For You,” Melanie also debuted the brand new song “Bite The Bullet.”

She also embraced the city by paying homage to Kendrick Lamar with a cover of “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”
