Hi I'm Melinda Aveleira!

I grew up in Sierra Vista, Arizona and I'm a singer, artist and an actress. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a singer/songwriter, an artist and an actress. I'm interested in music, Graphic Design and pretty much anything else in the Fine Arts area of things. I was a Round 1 contestant in the 1st Avon Voices International Talent Search in 2011 and was flown to Paris, France to record a few demos for our voting videos. It was a wonderful experience and I'm proud to be able to say I was able to do it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because, first of all, I was born and raised in it and the reason I've stayed in it is because... I truly feel that it is 100% true. I know it's hard to follow all the "rules" sometimes, but in the end, it is definitely worth it. Especially to feel that pure happiness and knowledge of your worthiness to enter into his kingdom.

How I live my faith

I am a Visiting Teacher to a family in our ward and I find it a lot of fun to go and just have a chat with them and a nice, spiritual thought. It really brings the spirit into our conversations and also gives us something extra to talk about. I also find it is a really great thing to have Visiting Teaching in the first place. We all want to feel loved and cared about, knowing someone's checking up on us because either it's their duty, or they genuinely want to know how you're doing and feel the need to help you in any way they can. It really lifts our spirits sometimes and can be a very helpful thing in many cases.
