Brittney Crush / Bio

Brittney Melvin, better known as "Brittney Crush”, was born in 1993 in Hartford, Connecticut. She remembers waking up on Saturday mornings to walk and get fresh bread from the local Puerto Rican bakery. Growing up with a single mother she learned the importance of love, faith and staying humble. Her mother always kept her involved in extracurricular activities such as step & drill, basketball and the Hartford Children's Theatre. When school ended, she would fly out to Atlanta, Georgia and spend the summer with her father getting a taste of soul and southern hospitality; she is the queen of versatility. She later attended and graduated from the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts in 2011, where she majored in voice (Jazz) and also learned Classical technique. Brittney's style is unique. She has a pop sensation similar to Keri Hilson, the strong voice of Beyonce with the soul of Alicia Keys. She writes all of her own music and melodies and tries to come up with concepts that are versatile yet easy for people to relate to. Brittney Crush says that her only goal is to make music that will touch people's heart and soul and although she loves the finer things in life and the glamorous lifestyle that comes with it, she would rather make people feel the emotion of her lyrics.She has performed at many local venues throughout her young years including having a standing ovation at Hot Chocolate Soul at the Bushnell Theater, singing the national anthem at the XL Center in Hartford and opening up for a comedy show at the Foxwoods Casino. She currently attends Five Towns College in Long Island New York where she is a sophomore majoring in Music Business. She has a mixtape CD entitled "Not Another Female Singer" and her music is currently on rotation on 89.9 WQTQ fm in Hartford.
