Who is Melissa Galindo?
Mexican pop singer and social media star Melissa Galindo was born under the zodiac sign Scorpio on 24 October in 1988. She’s perhaps known best for her music, while she began attracting attention when she entered and won the music competition show “La Voz… Mexico”; it’s been airing since 2011, today stars Mariel Santos, Marian Santos and Ruth Vazquez, and each season features a group of singers of various age competing to become the best.
Early life and education
Melissa was raised in Mexico City by her parents, but because she respects their privacy, not many details have been shared about them; it’s believed that her mother was once a singer and that her father’s a guitarist, which has led her to become interested in music. Melissa’s believed to be an only child, as she’s yet to speak about having siblings.
She began studying music at the Konzert School at a quite an early age, while she was also into various other activities while growing up as she enjoyed appearing in school plays, playing tennis and running track. Melissa studied at a local high school, and it was during her time there that she became even more serious about music and eventually decided to pursue a career in the entertainment industry; she also had a dream of becoming an actress, a model or a fashion designer.
Melissa matriculated in 2007, and then remained focused on her music career rather than enrolling at college.
