    2Melissa O'Neil [2005]


    Melissa Crystal O'Neil (born July 12, 1988 in Calgary, Alberta) was the winner of the third season of Canadian Idol. Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta (parents Tim O'Neil and Alison Yeung), Melissa worked at a daycare centre, and was involved in local musical theatre productions. It wasn't until three years ago when Melissa was found to posses a powerful singing voice when she was asked to sing at a relatives birthday party, as quoted by her mother.

    Personally, Melissa is a very family-orientated person; she shares a unique bond with her brother Colin and the song "Safe Place To Hide" is for her brother Colin (It was the only song on the album co-written by Melissa). Romantically, on April 6, 2006, Melissa O'Neil and Idol runner-up Rex Goudie confirmed in an interview with the CTV entertainment program eTalk Daily that they have been dating since the third week of Canadian Idol.

    Melissa is of partial Asian descent; her heritage is Chinese, Irish and some French. Her Chinese name was given to her by her maternal grandfather, and is pronounced Oh Seemun which means lady-like in Cantonese.
