A Family Follow Up With Melissa

At this time of year we like to reflect on Wednesday's Child children of the past, and this week we even catch up with one of them.

Remember this adorable little girl with her doll? Well, Melissa is now 13 years old and -- while outwardly quiet by nature -- her (adoptive) mom tells us she sings around the house nonstop. And it was music to our ears to hear all about Melissa's life since the adoption.

In true Wednesday's Child style, we thought Melissa would like a taste of what it's like to sing someplace besides around the house, so we also met up with teen rap sensation Lela Brown from “America's Got Talent”. Some of our entourage got to sing on the song (and be in the video) "Rap It Up For Xmas" which can be found on YouTube under Lela Brown.
