Melissa Pettignano releases her second single of 2021, titled 'I Know You', on June 18th, following the release earlier this year of 'Blessed Lord Jesus'.
Melissa and her father Raymond Pettignano, Sr wrote the new single 'I Know You'. They teamed up with legendary Eric Copeland with Creative Soul Records in association with Word Entertainment.
'Blessed Lord Jesus' was nominated for Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year in the Christian / Gospel categories in the Josie Music Awards in 2020. The song also hit #1 on the Christian Radio Charts in July 2020.
Melissa started showing signs of musical talent at the age of two, singing along and dancing to songs like, Connie Francis, The Supremes, and many others. Melissa, and her family as well, had a fond love and respect for the Doo Wops, as well as many other artists in the musical world of entertainment.
Her father and her aunt are the Doo Wop group/duo named Rickie and Vickie. Rickie and Vickie came out with “Joanie/Why Are You So In Love” on Angletone Records in the early 1960’s. For Melissa, it wasn’t just Doo Wop Melissa was fond of. Melissa sang and danced along to many other great artists of many different decades.
Melissa’s parents knew she was a true artist in her own right for all the many gifts and blessings she was given by the Grace of God. From a very young age she knew she was destined for something more, something bigger beyond herself, thanks to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She knew she was destined to be a performer, as well as all the other talents she possessed.
