La même année, Fred Mella a épousé la comédienne québécoise Suzanne Avon, dont il a eu deux enfants, dont Michel, chanteur lui aussi, et comédien de doublage. Le couple s'est marié en 1949. Certes, sa voix exceptionnelle avait fait de lui le soliste des Compagnons de la Chanson, mais il avait réussi à dégager une personnalité propre voire à apparaître comme le primus inter pares de l'ensemble vocal le plus populaire de la francophonie. Le dernier concert des Compagnons de la chanson remonté au 14 février 1985, à l'Olympia à Paris. Issu de parents italiens, le jeune Fred développe, très tôt, une passion pour le chant. Dans les années 50, c'est la chanson d'Edith Piaf, "Les Trois Cloches", qui a lancé la carrière des "Compagnons de la chanson".

Fondé en 1941, d'abord sous le nom des Compagnons de France, puis Compagnons de la Musique, le groupe des Compagnons de la Chanson a pris son envol à la Libération, avec comme autres parrains Yves Montand et Charles Aznavour. Leur "tube" commun, un titre empreint d'émotion, retrace la vie d'un homme, Jean-François, de sa naissance à sa mort, scandée par des cloches: Les trois Cloches. Le groupe avait accompagné la chanteuse lors de sa tournée américaine de 1947.
