Who are Melissa & Rayna?
Melissa and Rayna met and became friends during their time in Italy’s first edition of The Voice Kids. During some struggles in her personal life, Melissa found love and passion for music. Melissa’s love for music led her to win The Voice Kids, since then her friendship with Rayna has grown stronger and they have both found success on TikTok.
In 2023, Melissa & Rayna were internally chosen to represent Italy at Junior Eurovision 2023, and will represent Italy with their entry “Un Mondo Giusto”.
