Note: Seeing as the only sources of Melissa in pictures during the Captain & Tennille era are 70's video transfers and album/DVD covers, unavoidable video artifacts and printing/scanning issues are introduced so any such picture is of poor quality and/or has 'Moiré' patterns, unfortunately.
.......................................................
Underlines mark notes found in more prominent and/or solo vocal parts.
*= Notes sang on the Captain & Tennille Show from 1976-1977 or the Captain & Tennille Christmas Show for Christmas songs.

The Soprano voiced singing sister of Toni Tennille, Melissa Tennille sang the background Soprano parts on 'Captain & Tennille' recordings, and so toured with the duo and appeared on the 'Captain & Tennille Show', from 1976-1977, singing the same parts. A classically trained Lyric Soprano, Melissa's bright, bell-like head voice lifted more ambitious Captain & Tennille recordings like "God Only Knows", "Little Saint Nick", "Can't Stop Dancin'", "Love Is Spreading Over The World" and "Happy Together (A Fantasy)". Said head voice could extend to a D6, and her pleasant low register down to an F3, making her 2 octaves and 5 note range equal to that of her sister Toni.

Resized both photos. Sorry, I made the mistake of not resizing a portrait picture to a small enough horizontal resolution D\'oh
