Melissa Martinez is currently co-starring with Bai Ling, Kristy Wu and Treach (Naughty by Nature) in Bertha Pan's feature film Face. Born in the heart of Spanish Harlem on the east side of 115th Street, Melissa grew up in the projects and lived with her mother, father, and two brothers. She was fortunate to have parents that were very encouraging and supportive of her career choices, and as a child, sang in front of crowds of people outside the community center. Her first joy is performing, and it is something she is determined to do for life. In the 5th grade, she did a dance to Frank Sinatra's New York, New York and realized she loved dancing. Her favorite film as a kid was Singin' in the rain.
