Melissa Leigh has released her new single ‘Sun Shine Down‘ featuring Claudette King. Melissa is a Christian artist with a “lotta rockin’ soul” in her veins and her voice. The new release, ‘Sun Shine Down‘ shows the versatility in her style. It’s her roots in a little country church and singing growing up that gave her the love for music.
With the soulful vibe of this new release, felt it only appropriate to have her dear friend, Claudette King ( daughter of the legendary BB King) join her on it! Rocking for Jesus this time!! Bringing Claudette onboard with her bluesy genes brought the perfect soulful vibe with their harmonies
“Sun Shine Down,” (also called the whoop- whoop song) was created with Melissa and co-writer, Dave Lenahan and performed at writer’s rounds all over Nashville! The crowd always participated in the chorus. It’s been said once it’s in your head, can’t quit singing. Melissa feels that’s great perfect way to give all the glory to God up above! She and Claudette had been in the studio before but this their first collaboration! A great fit!
