Melody Thornton Facts

  1. Her talent was first noted at a Papago Elementary School talent show when she sang Mariah Carey‘s remake of the number titled Without You.
  2. She has disclosed that she had seen The Pussycat Dolls for the first time on Christina Aguilera‘s show called MTV Diary and she had loved the concept.
  3. Thornton has revealed that being with The Pussycat Dolls had taken a toll on her personal life when she experienced that the music business is a difficult industry involving high levels of stress and anxiety behind the scenes. She has recalled that she found the pressures to be immense and as a band member, she was compelled to do things that were in the best interest of the group, which made her get lost and lose a part of herself in the process. She reported that after leaving the group, she somewhat recovered only after seeking therapy to heal the damage caused.
  4. Melody has been deeply influenced by her own experiences in the past and that can be heard in her music. Along with the infusion of her ancestral roots, she has also dwelled on the time she had spent growing up in Arizona. She has shared that her parents were both brought up in small towns in the state with a wild west vibe, the region having a rich history and interesting stories, and all that has been a huge influence on her creativity.
