Melinda Lauture started her singing career at the age of fourteen. She was discovered by a local talent agent in 1989 while singing karaoke with friends. He became her manager and helped develop her talent. She and her friends formed a girl group called ESSENCE and performed in many talent shows throughout the Greater Boston area.
At seventeen, she began recording her solo demo CD under the direction of two up and coming local producers. One year later, after a lot of hard work and dedication, she was signed to record an EP deal with a major record company. During this time the voice of the Lord began calling her. She had to make a decision. She decided to give her life to the Lord surrendering all and leaving the secular world behind.
Melinda attends Greater Anointing Harvest Church in Boston, MA where she is an ordained minister, leads the Praise & Worship ministry, serves as Superintendent of Sunday School and is active in the women’s ministry.
Her love for God can be felt through her anointed songs of praise and worship. She truly has a heart for the people of God and loves to serve in the house of the Lord.
She lives in her home town, Boston, with her husband and childhood sweetheart, Charles, and their three lovely children who all love and serve God.
