A little about Mel Waiters:
R&B singer Mel Waiters was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, where in 1974 he began his performing career at local teen clubs; after a stint as a radio deejay, he was awarded a government contract to entertain at military bases across the southwest.
Debuting with 1997's Suki-Suki Man, he quickly followed with the LP I'm Serious, notching a hit with the single "Hit It and Quit It." Upon signing with Malaco/Waldoxy, Waiters returned with Woman in Need in 1998; Material Things followed a year later, and in mid-2000's the singer resurfaced with I Want the Best.
