Melody Kyzar – Co-founder, born a 2-1/2 months premature twin and raised in Orlando, FL. I truly believe my twin brother, Mark is my guardian angel, keeping a constant vigil, always watching me.
I have been visually impaired since birth, and totally blind since age 9, due to the 100% oxygen I received to keep me alive in the NICU. I have never considered this a disability, but a gift from God since I relate to others for who they are rather than what they look like. I like to think that I see others as God does.
I attended primary school through eight grade, and my mother home-schooled me from 9th – 12th grade. I attended 4 years of college and received an Associates of Arts Degree in Music with a 3.87 GPA at Valencia Community College. I sing in the SJV Church Family Choir every Sunday and for Healing Ministry because I enjoy praising God through the gift of song. I am passionate about sharing the gift of God’s love to all I come in contact with. With my passion of music and singing I look forward to sharing and helping others learn about music and sound therapies through my forthcoming Celestial Sounds Ministry. I also have a devotion to our Blessed Mother and faithfully pray the Rosary everyday and actively participate in expanding the Healing Ministry through All People’s Spiritual Temple of Central Florida and St. John Vianney Church.
