Come and celebrate love, with Melinda Schneider in LOVE SONGS
Multi Golden Guitar Award winner and chart-topping singer/songwriter, Melinda Schneider, presents LOVE SONGS: an intimate two-hour concert production featuring Melinda’s Golden Guitar winning hits plus the greatest love songs from some of Melinda’s most cherished singer/songwriters.
LOVE SONGS is a show inspired by the unconditional love Melinda has found with her long-time partner, Mark Gable, whom she will marry in October 2021. "I’ve been living in un-wedded bliss for the past thirteen years with Mark, but our little boy Sullivan, who is eight, came to me last year and said; Will you please marry daddy? I just don’t want anyone else to marry you! How could I refuse such a beautiful proposal" Melinda explained.
