Just Melanie.


I have always loved the beauty of Melanie Fiona’s voice, and her being. In my opinion, she is underrated. “I Tried” is raw, real and very beautiful. Although to some it is a smack to the face, it illustrates what’s really going on in the world today. In my opinion, what she chose to do with this video, takes serious strength. No makeup, no fancy or flashy clothes. Just Melanie trapped in a box with images of the madness and evils of the world we live in. Fiona gives hope for a better tomorrow. I can’t wait to hear more of this kind of music from Ms Fiona. My heart and soul truly felt this.
