The distance between dreams and reality is called action. While others spend most of their time thinking about their future, some remarkable people take it upon themselves to mobilize and make their fantasies a reality.
For a goal-getter like Melanie Koussa, it did not take that much time for her to act on her dreams. From the moment she realized her aspirations of becoming a renowned artist, Melanie went over and beyond to reach her goals in one of the most competitive industries around the world.
A singer, pianist, composer, dancer, pre-medical student, part-time hospital employee, Phoenicians band and choir (check them out on Instagram and Facebook) teacher, film director, producer, actress, and Houston Bucket Drumming (check them out on Instagram and Facebook) founder, Melanie Koussa, proves that no dream is too extraordinary for goal-getters like her.

And as she continues to hone her talents and put them on a pedestal for the world to see, Melanie takes on one of the most challenging industries across the globe – in the realms of music and entertainment.
As more and more people have seen the realities of how the entertainment industry works, many have concluded that such an enterprise vehemently fosters a cutthroat environment.

As a result of her talents, coupled with hard work, this 20-year-old talented Texan lady uses her unparalleled abilities to show the world the beauty of art and music.
