Grammy-Nominated Singer, Song Writer and Humanitarian

Melky Jean

Melky's distinct vocals can be found on Carlos Santana's album "The Shaman". She has also contributed songs to the soundtracks ''Love Jones'' (their breakout single ''I've Got a Love''), “Little Nikki”, “Two Can Play That Game”, ''The Hurricane'' (''Still I Rise''), and she is the voice of Sanaa Lathan in HBO’s hit “Disappearing Acts” where she landed one of her biggest hits (Brooklyn) a heart felt ballad.

Melky has been critically acclaimed by Rolling Stone Magazine who named her one of the best underground acts.

Given her extensive musical and performing career, she has still made time to pay it forward. Her most gratifying accomplishment to date is an organization she founded, The Carma Foundation. A non-profit dedicated to addressing the needs of women and children in her native homeland Haiti.

In September 2010, Melky Jean was honored at The 5 Continents Academy Awards for her work in Haiti and as a role model to the Haitian Diaspora.
