Stardust and Shine | Sage Melcher | 2015

My whole life has been devoted to my love and passion for music and art. Humanity is our greatest gift. I believe theatre, art, and music emphasizes this point and is the reason I am a performer.

She has performed with Michael Feinstein and Les Paul. Last year she received a scholarship to study musical theatre at Tringpark in the U.K.
