"I am so excited to be partnering with PRIMARY WAVE for the release of my third album. The journey from my last project to this moment has been graced with many moments of happiness, vulnerability, strength, and ultimately, growth,” explains FIONA. "I am looking forward to sharing my personal and musical evolution with the world."
In addition to winning two GRAMMY AWARDS in 2012 in the categories of Best R&B Song and Best Traditional R&B Performance for the song “Fool For You” with CEELO GREEN, FIONA has received a multitude of awards, nominations, and honors since the release of her first album, “The Bridge” in 2009.
MELANIE FIONA's music has been featured in a variety of television shows such as ABC’s "Grey’s Anatomy" and "Ugly Betty"; MTV’s "The Hills" and "Taking The Stage"; and CBS' "CSI: Miami." In 2009, her recording of “La Vie En Rose (La Vie En Rosato)” was created and used for a pan-EUROPEAN TV and radio campaign to promote the launch of MARTINI & ROSSI's Rosato.
