Working with Pop Stars | Wright Entertainment Group | *NSYNC | Backstreet Boys
Working with Wright Entertainment Group, Melinda Bell has managed such pop music celebrities as *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys.
Just ask Melinda Bell. During her career as Vice President of Special Projects with the music management company Wright Entertainment Group, she's worked with Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, to name just a few. Melinda's love of the music biz started when she was young. She used to be a performer herself and spent her teen years in Florida singing and dancing. When it was time to go to college, Melinda chose the University of Central Florida's School of Communication and majored in Radio and Television, with a minor in Marketing. Eventually, she snagged a job with Walt Disney World in their Events Department. "I was lucky because there are theme parks where I live," says Melinda. Melinda was there when Backstreet Boys auditioned for Johnny. If you're a die-hard *NSYNC fan you already know and love Melinda. She's the lucky lady who keeps you up on the guys lives through her column, *N Touch at *NSYNC's official site. She also does everything from organizing Challenge For The Children events, to organizing the Sound Check parties and helping the guys out while they tour. Yep, she gets to go on tour with them. "It's a lot of hard work, but it's gratifying," says Melinda. "My favorite part is when all my hard work pays off and I can get a kid with cancer to one of the shows." Her hard work means long hours. Though the WEG office is open 10 am to 7 pm, Melinda says her phone does not stop ringing all day and it means staying late to get paper work done. Her hours are generally 9 am to 10 pm. UGH! But Melinda says all the long hours, grueling travel schedule and hard work pays off when the guys win an award. "When the guys win an award it's one of the signs that all the work has paid off. Oh yeah, and if you've ever heard the guys thank "chicken", that would be Melinda. "It's because when I get excited my voice gets higher and Johnny says I squak like a chicken," explains Melinda.

"All of the members of 'N Sync were committed to donating their time and resources to various causes," said Melinda Bell, senior vice president of Wright Entertainment Group, which managed 'N Sync.
They participated in benefit concerts, golf tournaments and other events when their busy touring schedule allowed. Prior to each of their shows, meet-and-greets were scheduled for children with disabilities or special needs. "Often, Chris would spend extra time with kids, showing them around the stage and dressing rooms," Bell said. According to Bell, from 1999 to 2005, the foundation raised and distributed more than $5 million to various children's programs and charities throughout the country, including Orlando's Arnold Palmer Hospital For Children. Bell added that many of the youngsters came from the Children's Home Society of Florida and The Russell Home for Atypical Children. "We issue a fraternity [and] sorority challenge to local college students," Bell said.
Melinda Bell, the teen's agent with Wright Entertainment Group in Orlando - the same agency that managed 'N Sync, Backstreet Boys, and Boyz II Men - said, "I think she's an incredibly talented little girl who is going to be a superstar.
