Reverend Melanie Wilkinson – A talented gospel performer/singer/songwriter and well-known throughout Florida, when not traveling with the band she leads Praise and Worship at Christ the Cornerstone Church in St. Petersburg. Blending her keyboard skills and bluesy voice with the powerful messages contained in her songwriting, Mel sings with a glow that turns her songs into both sermons and autobiography all at once. Her range and motivation make her an absolute force that lifts and moves an audience.
Listen to her story of being rejected and devastated by the loss of her partner and how she overcame; writing the song, “Joy Comes in the Morning” and “Walk Through the Fire.” Or listen to her joy as she sings the lead of the ‘60s-style rock original, “Church House.”
Rev. Mel also delivers sermons with passion and fire, blended with humor to get the crowd in a place to hear God’s word. She’s direct and “real” with a way of creating parallels between Bible Stories and every-day living.
Along with Canaan’s powerful music of worship and praise, Rev Mel is also available to deliver God’s word.
