  11. Hello Keith Nellie Melba was a famous Australian operatic soprano: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nellie_Melba Check out a $100 note for her picture. I think you might be referring to American rapper Nelly: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelly I am surprised that I know about Nelly as rap is not on my radar.
