Melanie Tierce is in development as an artist/writer in the People & Songs Community. She is currently a student at Azusa Pacific University earning her degree in Music and Worship with an emphasis in Biblical Studies. She has been involved in music ministry for the past 5 years at Centerpoint Church in Murrieta, CA. Part of this time was spent doing a one-year internship, during which she co-wrote and was a part of recording their worship album, Living Waters. Melanie was a finalist at the Immerse conference in both 2012 and 2013 in the vocalist and artist/writer categories. This past summer, she was an intern at The Emerging Sound, where she co-wrote on the single that came out of that year, Touched By A Fire. She is passionate about writing music that facilitates the many different ways that God encounters His people, and is so excited to be mentored by Jennie Lee Riddle and join such an incredible group of songwriters as a member of the People & Songs family.
