Melody Thornton

Jessica Sutta (born 15 May 1982) is from Miami, Florida.

The baby girl of the family, Jessica started dancing at age 3 and hasn't stopped since. Her audition for the Dolls came with a graceful save; when her hairpiece fell out, she kept going with a smile and of course, she got the job. Her love for Robin's choreography makes the job her perfect match.

In 2002 Sutta moved to Los Angeles, and as a freelance dancer appeared in music videos for Will Smith, Beyoncé ("Crazy in Love"), Baby Bash, Craig David and Gloria Estefan, among others. She came to the attention of choreographer Robin Antin who cast her in the re-vamped Pussycat Dolls in 2002. As with all the other Dolls, Sutta is a salaried employee of Interscope Records.

Jessica says "When I first saw the Pussycat Dolls perform, I was so taken by the concept. I mean, they were just girls being girls. And honestly, what's better than being a girl?" She also had some problems in her audition. She says "I decided to wear a hairpiece that would make my hair look fuller. I didn't know I had to put more than two pins in it and well...by my first head spin, my hair was flying across the room!"

In 2007, she appeared on an episode of the game show Identity.

Sutta is featured on a track that reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Singles Sales, called "White Lies", which also has a video, from Paul Van Dyk's album, In Between, released in August 2007. "White Lies" is the first single from this album and was released in July 2007.

On May 15, Sutta confirmed via her website that she is working with Dj Cedric Gervais on a song called "Where Ever You Are"., which will be featuring on his upcoming album called "Miamication" which is scheduled for release later this summer.. In recent interview Jessica confirmed that she will be featured on Eva Simons new song called "Look But Don't Touch". The song is set to be released in July, and will serve as the official second single from Eva's debut album.

In late 2009 Jessica Sutta announced on her Twitter account that she has been working on her solo music with Dutch producer Terace "Kizzo" Keaz.

In an interview in Starpulse.com she revealed more details about her solo album. She told,

"This year is going to be really busy for me because I'm starting my album so I'm not going to have a lot of time, I'm writing and I'm working with up and coming producers.... The sound should reflect some of the same influences as the Pussycat Dolls music, but more focused to Sutta's own inspirations. "I have a love for dance music so it's going to be dance music, also inspired pop dance music."

Atfer her announcement of her departure from the group, she told MTV News that she will try her hand at another aspect of the musical process, songwriting. She explained,

"I'm really excited about my solo project. I've been working with my friend Tearce Keaz...and I've actually been writing. I didn't get a chance to write on the Dolls albums, and I just found out I can write, which is really cool." She also describe her music: "It's really upbeat, it's fun dance music that you hear in the clubs. Kylie Minogue is one of my idols, so I'd like to have something similar to her album. It's just going to be inspiring, fun music that you can put in your ears and drift away. And I'm showing my alter ego, which I'm really excited about, and is kind of a theme to my album."

She recently announced that she has finished a song with British songwriter and record producer Martin Harrington called "Rodeo", and there will be a rapper on it. Harrington has written and produced for many artists including Celine Dion, Kylie Minogue and Natalie Imbruglia. Jessica and Harrington also recorded a song "I Got This Down".

On popcandiesTV on she announced that she is working on a song aimed for a July release titled "Wherever You Are". She also stated she is co-writer on the song.
