Who is Recording Artist Melissa Pettignano

Hello. My name is Melissa Pettignano. I am 31 years old. I have been writing since I could write. I love expressing my feelings on paper and letting people read it and feel what I feel. I am a professional music artist as well, and hope to share that with many of you one of these days. I’ve won many awards for singing and writing . I am truly blessed, and I thank God everyday. My family is very big. My household contains my mother, father, brother, one cats and myself. I grew up in Jersey City until  I was seven  and then moved to Secaucus, New Jersey six months later.

I went to Clarendon School until sixth grade when I graduated.  After that, I attended Secaucus Middle School for two years (seventh and eighth grade). After passing eighth grade, I graduated . For the first two years of my high school education, I attended Secaucus High School  ninth and tenth  grade. For the last  remaining two years, I was home schooled.

I decided after tenth grade it was time for me to pursue my music, writing and modeling. I have done everything any young girl my age would want to pursue. I experienced many wonderful things, went to prom, and  learned a lot from my experiences. I didn’t have it easy when I was younger. I didn’t have it hard either, but I’ve been through a lot since then.  My faith has and always will be a part of me and it has truly helped me with a lot. If anything faith is #1 to really bring you to your roots.

One of the biggest losses I have had to deal with was losing my aunt, Arlene T. Babakitis on September 11, 2001.  I’ve shown  my love and support  through writing and music. That day was a day no one will ever forget. I pray for everyone, and my love is with them all. I started writing when I was in fifth grade “Suzanne Lantana” and I’ve been hooked since.

As I stated earlier certain things are real, but sometimes that is what makes a story interesting. It’s fun to figure what’s real and what’s not. This book, a collection of short stories, is something I feel many young girls and even  some boys can relate to. I say this because many pre-teens and teenagers have so much to say and sometimes don’t get the chance to say it. These stories will make many pre-teens and teenagers say,  as they read, “I know what she went through“, “I know of a friend who is going through the same thing” or, “I went to a party just like that,” or  “my school does the same thing. ”  By this,  they can gain some sense of  certain situations and relate or learn from it.

Remain Anchored from Eastern North Carolina is coming to a city near you

Remain Anchored is a brother/sister duo from Eastern North Carolina. Patrick and Hannah Rose are talented songwriters, musicians and vocalists with a passion for God. Their group title comes from Hebrews 6:19 – “We have this hope as a steadfast anchor, which reaches the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.”- and is a testament to their rooted faith in God. 

The Emerging Recording Artists began in the summer of 2011, during the Edenton Music and Water Festival. Patrick was scheduled to perform as a solo artist that day, but God had other plans in mind. With Patrick battling a sore throat, younger sister Hannah graciously stepped up to the plate to help her brother through his set and Remain Anchored was born!! 

Over the course of the next few years, the duo sang at various acoustic festivals, youth events and local churches, all while growing in their musicality and faith. Some of their more notable appearances include NC United Methodist Eastern Conference Pilgrimage, Relay for Life, Elizabeth City Potato Festival and Chowan County Regional Fair. God would open another door for the group in 2013 when they were introduced to National Recording Artists, Paula & Angie. This introduction served as the beginning of a beautiful friendship and eventually led to Remain Anchored being signed by Angie Greene Gray in 2016 to her Indie Label – G2 Music Group, LLC

In January 2017, the duo traveled to the legendary Daywind Studios in Hendersonville, TN to record their debut self-titled EP, comprised of all original music written by Patrick and Hannah, and produced by Angie. The radio single from the EP – “Footsteps” – is available now on select Internet and Terrestrial radio stations and Soundcloud. The EP released on April 28, 2017 at all major digital retailers, select stores (Walmart, Target, Best Buy, etc) and via their website. 

For Patrick and Hannah, it’s all about Jesus and growing in their relationship with Him. One of their favorite verses is Psalm 16:8–“I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” Even with all of the excitement from performing for crowds, Patrick and Hannah know their performances are all about God. All glory and honor go to Him. Using a story from Sheila Walsh, they liken themselves to the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem during his triumphant entry before going to Calvary. They are merely the messengers of the one true King. Whether they are in their living room harmonizing or singing on stage, they want God’s light to shine and encourage others to seek Him.

Meet William Tolson the guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter from Maryland.

Who Is Recording Artist William Tolson?

It is a blessing when God smiles on someone and bestows the gift of music.  For William, that gift has been overflowing!  The first gift granted to him was the ability to play the guitar.  He gave it back to the Lord by using it to worship Him.  At the age of 14, he started playing the guitar at church.  William had a zest for music and began singing in various church groups.  One of the church groups he participated in was a locally known gospel quartet, The Harmonizing Five.  Membership in this men’s quartet, holds a special place in Williams’s heart.  As a young adult, William took on the role of choir director for the church’s Young Adult Choir.  Today he serves as the church’s Minister of Music. Over the years, William has been dedicated to his musical service to the Lord.  That dedication was rewarded with the gift of songwriting.  His gift as a guitarist and songwriter has lead him to develop many musical compositions.  Those compositions lead to the recording of six albums.  Recent recordings include three instrumentals and three choir albums.  The latest instrumental album entitled, “Renewed” is a continuation of the inspiring hymns of the earlier released albums “Lifted” and “Expressions”.  The instrumental albums features William’s gift as an accomplished guitarist.  The “Lifted” album was a must recording based on the overwhelming support from the “Expressions” album.  Enthusiastic admirers of the earlier instrumental yearned for another guitar instrumental. William Tolson’s guitar performance is a style that is uniquely his own.

William’s melodious guitar playing appeals to all age groups and diverse religious backgrounds from traditional to contemporary music lovers.  Youngsters have been known to do their homework listening to his instrumental albums.  Others have spoken of how this music ministry delivered them out of a state of depression from the loss of a loved one. William’s musical talents extend beyond that of an accomplished guitarist.  His talents as a songwriter are showcased on two of his latest choir albums entitled, “Bring A Praise”, featuring the AFC Voices of Praise and “Lord We Praise You”, featuring the AFU Mass Choir; a community choir that was formed and directed by William.

William is dedicated to performing routinely as a guitarist and director for his church choir, the AFC Voices of Praise.  The choir has sung and inspired many over the years.  Noteworthy are appearances at Luther Barnes North Carolina Fall Gospel Classic and the Bobby Jones Gospel in New Orleans television show (Aired on The Word Network – July 2008).  William Tolson and the AFC Voices of Praise are pleased to be the 2008 1st Place Winners of the 12th Annual North Carolina Fall Gospel Classic, and 2010 2nd Place Winners of RT Productions 1st Annual Workshop and New Artist Showcase.

William’s music ministry extends beyond the church doors into the community.  He performs for the homeless, at benefit concerts for cancer, and hunger fundraisers.
