Charley says ARTIST! Melanie Martins

Sometimes there’s these popstars you just have to feel bad for. Melanie Martins is one of them. Early 2003 Melanie became the winner of ‘Star Academy: Made In Belgium’, to my knowledge the first and only Walloon talent show of its kind to be made without the aid of a French network.

S’Aimer Plus Que Tout‘, Melanie’s first single, sounds exactly like you’d expect a French talent show winner’s debut to sound. Unfortunately Wallonia was to busy going crazy over French Star Academy winners Jenifer and Nolwenn Leroy to bother supporting their homegrown talent. The song only managed to peak at number 17.

Over a year later Melanie released an overdue sophomore single. ‘Je Pars‘ was a perfectly pleasant pop/rock song, but alas, the ship to fame and fortune had already sailed. It never made it out of the bubbling under chart.

And that was it. That was the end of Melanie Martins’ music career.

Poor Melanie Martins.
