About Marilyn c
My name is Marilyn, most of my friends and family know me by Meddy.
I'm Puerto Rican. Born and raised on the North- West side of Chicago Illinois.
(believe me when they say Ill-inois) they aren't playing!!!
I lived there until I was 16.
Then I wanted to make a change and get away from all the violence that owned my neighborhood .
I packed up and moved to New York.
I lived there for two and half years. I then moved to Allentown, Pa to join the rest of my family. I've been here since 1998. its now 2009...Long time right!! lol.
Growing up in my childhood years, I remember memories of friends surrounded with almost all of my family being musically inclined aunts and uncles. Some played instruments and some sang their hearts out. I remember my father, oh god how he loved to play the congas, and he was really good at it too- I was a member of the church. I always enjoyed hearing the instruments and singers. I enrolled in a field house park called Simon's . I was part of the Choir their as well. I learned Hip_hop dance and song. I learned to play basic Piano, I tried the guitar but not my thing. If you ask me to play the piano,i'll play happy birthday or twinkle little star (laughs) thats what I learned so many years ago. I was involved in many activities, you name it i was in it, Volley ball, Basket ball,Hockey < gymnastics..< softball, And music. Those days I'd do any thing anything to stay off the streets and stay alive . Plus it was fun and I learned a lot about my self.
Music and dancing were amongst one of my favorites. Oh gosh how do i start, first off : I never thought I'd be singing and recording or ever even performing for people live, (its been a while since I've performed)
Doing what i'm passionate doing just makes me hungrier to learn and to push forward and practice the art an try and share any knowledge of music as best I can with new artist who are eager to learn.
I'm inspired by , Mary j, blige, Monica, Diana Ross, SWV, Escape Alicia keys, and the list goes on.
I also love to freestyle just a little( a little) ! Growing up watching rap videos of Queen Latifah, Brat, MC Lite, and so on: would inspire any kid to want to do the same.
you could catch me always tuned into music videos. i'd watch Mary J. Blidge, Monica, and so many other great artist .I would consider myself in the urban feel, I got a little pop, and r and b in me and versatile.
I really never freestyle much unless I'm at home joking around with my kids, we play a game were we all pretend to battle, i'll start dancing we put on music and sing aloud and sometime make funny videos. When i'm not busy I take that time to gather my thoughts, and I just write and sing about chapters in my life or others.. I've had a tough journey in my life and been through a lot of trials and tribulations. Music has always been my medicine,It took care of me emotionally and physically and mentally. Music is potent . I dont think alot of people know how powerful it truley is.
I'm an aspiring singer and song writer.I will always do this: even if I never reach the top or make a hit single. I still will always write just because I love it. I'm persistent. I'm a star without the riches, I'm unique in my own way , I believe everyone stands out in there own way like the many different stars in the sky. I'm beautiful no matter what inside out. Everyone deserves to be heard. We all have a story to tell.
telling stories from the true testaments we all have written and assigned to us ,will be heard through my music and many other artist whom I've collaborated with. many you will find on my music list( hope you enjoy). Hopefully someone can relate or use it as medicine.
