Mackinley Grace Melgoza is 17 years old and a senior at Capital Christian High School in Sacramento, CA. Her father is from Uruapan, Michoacan, MX and her mother is from Sparta, Michigan, which may be partly responsible for her love of so many different styles of music. She has loved singing since she was a toddler and has been involved in many productions at both church and school.
Being a part of broadway musicals in her school is a love of hers, her favorite roles being the Queen in Once Upon a Mattress, Ruth in Pirates of Penzance, and Anna in The King and I. Mackinley is also a part of the worship band at her church and school and has been a part of the church’s Singing Christmas Tree productions for 12 years.
During the summer of 2017, she toured California during weekends as a backup singer for a band supporting a rising pop artist. As a budding songwriter, she recorded two of her songs to add to her versatile repertoire.
Mackinley’s goal is to continue to pursue music as a career in whatever direction God leads.
