Melody Thornton is an American pop singer, songwriter, dancer and television personality who rose to stardom as the youngest member of the successful pop group The Pussycat Dolls. Melody has gone from being a key member of multi-platinum selling pop juggernaut Pussycat Dolls to a fascinating and fabulous solo career completely on her own terms. Rather than sticking to the script, she continues to challenge both herself and the environment around her.
Thornton discovered her passion for music at a very young age, and she hit the stage the first chance she got. She went from turning heads at school talent shows in her native Arizona to joining Pussycat Dolls at 19-years-old. With the group, she toured the globe in front of sold out venues worldwide and released two chart-topping full-length albums PCD in 2005 and Doll Domination in 2008. The quintet went on hiatus in 2010, but Thornton’s journey had just begun. Her first mixtape P.O.Y.B.L [Piss on Your Black List] hit in 2012, and it immediately began to turn heads. Thornton’s impressive range and powerful delivery carried the offering with a combination of sass and savoir fare culled from all her years on stage. She embraced her timeless earliest influences and carved out a style all her own in the process. This is most definitely the future for Thornton. She soulfully struts between eras with modern confidence, belting out every song with the same inimitable infectiousness that helped drive Pussycat Dolls. She’s also evolving lyrically and is now every bit the solo star.
