Melanie Anne Safka born on February 3, 1947, in Queens, New York, and grew up in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens. Her father, Fred, was of a Ukrainian ethnic background and her jazz singer mother, Polly, was of Italian heritage.
She made her first public appearance at age four, singing "Gimme a Little Kiss" on the radio show "Live Like A Millionaire".
In 1970 released her third album "Candles In The Rain". The album produced Melanie's first Top Ten single in North America, "Lay Down (Candles In The Rain)", which was inspired by the crowd's reaction to her performance at Woodstock. The cover of The Rolling Stones' 1967 song "Ruby Tuesday" reached the Top Ten in the United Kingdom.
