New artists try to make it in the entertainment industry everyday, what makes Melissa Ruth any different?

For starters, this Orange County, Ca. native’s first single “PLEASE” hits straight to the point of how to deal with emotionally abusive relationships. Talk about a message! She’s targeting her audiences with solutions to these problems, rather then dwell in the pain it causes.

The title “PLEASE” is a misnomer, in that the song is directed to the abuser, from the “victim.” She is saying that the victim no longer exists, but the time for payback is here. Her title earned in the industry, “The Princess is coming to take her throne” is derived from the concept of “life after abuse.” And, she wants the princess in every girl who hears her music, to recognize the beauty she has in herself.

The song “PLEASE” rivets the abuser into a corner and hits him with a left hook to the chin for the knock out punch. This song has explosive connotations to society. Her album sends meaningful, truthful messages that listeners can learn from, and also enjoy. Not only is she victoroius in her music, but she also choreographs her own dances used in her performances.

“I feel the music, so it’s only natural that I would feel the moves used on stage.”- Melissa Ruth.

Expect even more from this artist and learn from her experiences. “The only reason I try so hard to have my music heard, is so it can help others get out of their own emotionally abusive relationships. The day someone comes up to me and says my music helped them in their life is the day my goal has been acheived.”- Melissa Ruth. Expect her album in stores soon, and look for her in your town. But don’t think you won’t have fun when listening to the music, this girl knows how to throw a party. You can view nore about Melissa Ruth on her website:
