About: Melanie Rutherford
While other people sit at the door waiting for opportunity to knock, Pontiac, Michigan native Melanie
Rutherford, unapologetically kicks the door down. Bold, brash and extremely talented, this twenty
something singer/songwriter has been wowing music educators and industry professionals alike since the
age of five. She began singing at the age of three. As a kindergarten student, Melanie Rutherford was
selected to sing a solo behind the fifth grade choir at Bethune Elementary School. After hearing a seven
year old Melanie sing at a talent competition, legendary gospel great, Dr. Mattie Moss Clark remarked
that she had “an anointing on her voice.” Just last year, Universal Music/Motown recording artist KEM,
named Melanie one of his musical inspirations, alongside Michael Jackson, Prince and Chaka Khan.

As a student at Pontiac’s Central High school she continued to win numerous music accolades and
scholarships including: securing a number two ranking in the Michigan Solo Ensemble Competition and
scholarships from the James Tatum Foundation for the Arts and the Zeta Phi Beta sorority. Melanie was
also awarded a full music scholarship to Dillard University in Louisiana. After her stint in college,
Melanie returned to Detroit more determined than ever to pursue a music career. She continued singing
and writing, perfecting her crafts.
