The conception of Melodious started in the parking lot of the Calvary Baptist Church of Pacoima, CA, where Apostle William T. Broadous, Sr. is the Senior Pastor. The members shared ideas of writing and performing original gospel music. The group started as "Melodious Hearts", later dropping the "Hearts" and is now known simply as "Melodious". The group has been together for five years and in 2004 released their debut self title CD.

While a member of "Rapid Transit," Lara had her first experience as a songwriter. Then while singing lead for a vocal trio (that was un-named and included two guys), Lara received an offer for a recording contract, which she declined because of her full time student status at California State University Dominguez Hills, and the contract required a two-year commitment. Also the record contract didn''t include the other members of the trio and Lara didn''t want to go it alone. The trio never performed anywhere but in the living room, but the experience helped Lara to embrace her gift of music.
Lara was a member of the choir for the live recording of Rebecca McCallaugh''s "God is My Strength In Song" album. After college she became a member of the Calvary MBC of Pacoima, Rev. William T.
