Melissa Harrell

Melissa Harrell is a fresh face here in Abilene. She and her family moved here from Murray, Kentucky in 2019 for her husband's job with ACU Athletics. Prior to their move, Melissa worked as a professional performer at The Badgett Playhouse in Grand Rivers, KY singing and dancing in decades based variety shows as well as starring in their Christmas Variety Extravaganza! She was also heavily involved in musical theatre including lead roles in RENT, Next to Normal, Jesus Christ Superstar and Kiss Me, Kate. She and her husband Steve were foster parents in Kentucky and are very passionate about homeless youth. They have four children and are members at South Side Baptist Church here in Abilene. Melissa works from home as a Trunk Keeper for Matilda Jane Clothing and is a licensed Disney Vacation planner. Her favorite artist of all time is Prince, but she loves to perform any genre from any decade of music. Melissa is also a provisional member of the Junior League of Abilene and is so honored to be part of Celebrity Idol not only to raise money, but also awareness to the importance of the arts.
