Growing up in the shadow of her dad, Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers, young McKenna Medley was singing by the time she was 5, and she quickly became aware of the physical nature of beauty. From the time she was young, she has struggled with her weight. “You go to an audition and they say, ‘You’re great, but you need to lose weight,’” says McKenna.
After transplanting to Branson to perform with her dad, McKenna soon fell into a hectic work schedule that helped her drop extra weight, and after several years of performing on the road, McKenna learned a few tricks about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. To share her knowledge and document her diet, she started the blog arighteousfit.blogspot.com.
Still hitting the road with her dad, who is now 73, McKenna has settled into her role as performer, writer and singer. She’s also dropped 80 pounds and is now happy to have her shapely curves. “As a little girl, I wanted to dress and look like the Spice Girls and No Doubt,” she says. “But now I don’t want to be like anyone else. I just want to be what I am. I think that’s more beautiful than imitating something else.”
