OLTL & DAYS Alum Melissa Archer Mourns the Loss of Her Father to COVID-19

Covid-19 has now taken over 500,000 lives in the United States, and it’s heartbreaking to hear the stories of loved ones being separated by this virus in their time of need.

Now comes word from former One Life to Live and Days of our Lives actress, Melissa Archer (Ex-Natalie, Ex-Serena), that she lost her beloved father to Covid-19.

Melissa shared her thoughts in a beautifully written post which we have posted here.

In her Instagram post, Archer shared: I never wanted to imagine what losing a parent would feel like. I knew it would happen one day, but it always seemed so far in the future. My dad was so young. Covid is so evil. He fought hard – 51 days away from his family – even made it to his birthday. But the Lord decided to relieve him of his suffering and bring him home to Him. I know my dad will live on in so many people. He touched the lives of many and wanted so much for all to know and see the good in the Lord. I’m grateful for the memories. I’m grateful we got to do some amazing things together over the years. While there were times I didn’t appreciate him, he patiently waited for me to come back around. Sounds like another Father I know. I’m sad that I can’t call him right now to tell him how sad I am about not having him here to call. That I won’t ever hear the words missy poo pot pie again, that I won’t hear him look at a sign and say the words in a silly voice and think it’s funny (I now do this), that I won’t hear him sing with his band again, or have him say how much he loves his girls. But I know he’s in heaven, doing all those things, and I know he’s watching out for us. I hope he’s enjoying the beauty of heaven and all the promises we’ve been given. I hope he sees the rest of the fam that’s in heaven and rejoicing in their freedom.”

Please send your condolences and thoughts and prayers to Melissa and her family via the comment section below.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

Renée Elise Goldsberry & Brandi Carlile Drop Cover of ‘I Put a Spell on You’ In Film Soundtrack of ‘The Social Dilemma’

One Life to Live alum and Tony-Award winning star, Renée Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline Williamson) duets with multi- Grammy winner Brandi Carlile in a stunning recording and haunting remake of Nina Simone’s version of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell on You”.  The track dropped today.

The song is part of  the docu-drama, The Social Dilemma.  The film deals in part of how Silicon Valley tech companies have their way with people and civilization.

For the soundtrack album, producers thought that a new and lyrically updated version of the track could be hypnotic to fit in with the throughline of the story of the film.

Enter Carlile and Goldsberry to sing in it!

Brandi shared to Variety, “I loved The Social Dilemma and was thrilled they asked me to sing this song especially with the incomparable Renée Elise Goldsberry. I hope this soundtrack continues to bring attention to the film, which I think is so important.”

Renee expressed:  “The Social Dilemma confirmed some of my greatest fears about social media, and added a few. I jumped at the chance to collaborate with the great Brandi Carlile and Mark Crawford to amplify the film’s haunting message. Now that we know the truth, will we insist on reform? Or remain spellbound, bought and sold?”

The mesmerizing single can be heard here via Spotify, Apple Music and more

So what do you think of Goldsberry and Carlile performing together? Did you catch Renée on ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway? If not you can watch last night’s livestream again below! Share your thoughts via the comment section.
