Lisette Melendez
Lisette Melendez
Lisette Melendez grew up in East Harlem where she still resides, and where she began to take an interest in singing at the age of 12. Both her mother and her aunt sang in church and in community theaters, inspiring Lisette to take a chance. Growing up with four other siblings in the "barrio", Lisette set herself apart from the dangers of inner city life. As a child, Lisette spent most of her time at home listening to cassettes and working on her singing skills.

Eager to become a singer, Lisette marveled at the rise of another young Puerto Rican diva named "Lisa Lisa" of Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. Inspired by their success, Lisette formed a boy/girl group while she was still in high school. This group later led her to producer Carlos Berrios, whose credits includes such freestyle divas as Corina and Jasmin. Soon thereafter, she was doing background vocals for Berrios and eventually provided the lead voice for the 1988 club hit "Noise."

Lisette went on to work with Fever Records' executives Sal Abbatiello after the release of Lisette's smash hit, "Together Forever". Later that same year, Lisette was signed with Fever Records and her debut album "A Day In My Life" was released. In 1993, Lisette released her second album with Fever Records/Columbia entitled "True To Life". In 1994, "True To Life" reached double platinum status in Japan, where she also won a Grammy for "Best New Artist" for that same year.

Lisette has gone on to release yet another album, which features back up vocals from fellow freestyle divas, Joei Mae & Sa-Fire entitled "IMAGINATION." She has also branched out to do Spanish/Salsa music and has released "Un Poco De Mi" under Sir George Records.
Fascination
Fascination
Born as Elsie Rodriguez in The Bronx, New York, Fascination, has always dreamt that one day she would be a successful recording artist. With that in her mind, she studied music, drama, and dance. Her love for dancing is what actually gave Fascination her big break in the Freestyle business. She was discovered dancing up a storm at the Copacabana in New York City, where she was introduced to producer Todd Terry.

Fascination's first release, "Why Ya Wanna Go" under Vinylmania Records, was a huge success that it was later followed by another huge hit, "Don't You Think It's Time". After the success of her first two releases, Fascination was signed to Lumar Records. In 1990, "Remember" was released and hit Billboard's Dance charts which then led to a major endorsement deal with Coca-Cola. During the time "Freestyle Lives" was released, Fascination had just released her next single under Cutting Records entitled "Still Miss You", and is/was currently collecting material for her a future album.
