OK if you know about Melanie, you probably already do know that she is Guyanese. Yet another Canadian crossover artist with West Indian roots, she has always repped her parents’ homeland of Guyana and island culture in general. But did you know she got her start voicing reggae tunes for Black Chiney Sound? (Check her out singing Wayne Wonder’s “The Saddest Day” at a Beres Hammond show back when she was called Syren Hall).
