On November 24 2001 Melanie and the girls from Passion Fruitt died in a plane crash near Zurich. Saturday night she performed in Leipzig and then she drove to Berlin where she took the plane to Zurich for radio and TV appearances (among others, the broadcast "Die Bar" on TV3, which was cancelled) to promote her new single "Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming)".
"Wonderful Dream" was a Christmas ballad recorded for a Coca-Cola TV commercial.
The irolny of the situation is the album was called "Ready to fly" and she died from a plane accident. Her album was planned to be re-released on the 26th of November.
Melanie was only 34 years old...
