Status: Partially Lost

"Melanie Martinez" (previously known as "Melmartinezx3") is the Melanie Martinez's official Youtube channel. It was created on November 3rd, 2007, before she started a singer's career.

Althought most of old videos are lost, some of them were archived on Wayback Machine and others later resurfaced, but only with only their audios available.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

Background

Melanie created her account as "Melmartinezx3" on November 3rd, 2007, but apparently only started posting in the following year, with two known videos uploaded in total. The first one was a cover of "Follow Me" originally sung by Uncle Kracker, and the second one another cover of "How to Save a Life" by The Fray.

From 2009 to 2010, Melanie started posting covers more frequently, and also her own songs, one of them being her fist known original titled "Hey Alice". In 2011, even thought she uploaded some videos, it is assumed that Melanie took a break from her channel as she decided to focus on her career as a photographer, founding her own company named "Little Body Big Heart", which later had its activities closed.

In 2012, Melanie deleted/privated most of her old videos, only mantaining some covers like "My Heart" and her song "Smoke", but was still uploading new videos . In the same year, Melanie participated of the third season of "The Voice" competition (later ending up in sixth place) and after that became more frequent on her channel again.

In 2013, she deleted/privated all of her old videos and started uploading fans recordings of her live perfomances and new covers. In 2014, she changed her username to her real name, and it turned into her official singer account and deleted her old videos.
