Ladies and Gents: Introducing the multitalented and multi-instrumentalist K.Michelle. Destined to be a musical force to be reckoned with, she isn’t your normal artist. She’s raw, blunt and rough around the edges at times yet commands respect and a true scholar of the arts indeed.

Michelle is ‘The Ultimate Experience.’ A lyrical thoroughbred, she exudes confidence and has dedicated years to perfecting her craft. K.Michelle’s vision for her music is longevity. “I want to make great music that will be around forever,” she expresses. “I feel that a lot of music and artists out now are one hit wonders. You can always listen to my music. I need for my songs to be big records, emotional records and motivating records that people will always be able to remember.” Hailing from Memphis doesn’t mean K’s music is country or rap. This multifaceted entertainer wants to inform her audience that she’s a country music connoisseur, a pop princess and a music lover. Veering into an alternate lane with her music, K. Michelle’s play list encompasses love ballads, uptempo grooves and dance pop tunes. “Above All” and “Life Support” reflect K’s artistic expressions and her vocal versatility. “Life Support” written by Rico Love (Usher, Omarion, Marques Houston & Donell Jones), is a slow groove uncovering intimate lyrics about losing someone that’s near and dear to your heart. Showcasing her song writing skills as well, she penned “Above All,” a mid-tempo ballad that exemplifies a person who motivates and inspires you all around. Singer, songwriter and dancer K. Michelle created her buzz after being inspired by music’s supreme ambassador, Whitney Houston. Continuing to excel in her craft, K elaborates, “She’s my inspiration. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t want to be a singer. I’ve studied Whitney’s music and continue to do so today. It’s the reason my voice is so big and why I project extremely well.” The passionate ballad entitled “Love,” co-written by K. Michelle and produced by Elvis (Ciara “Promise”, Kelly Rowland “Bump Like This” & Fergie “Glamorous Life”) will remind listeners vocally of a Whitney or Celine Dion epic. “Love” represents K’s aspiration to find true romance and wondering if it even exists. Close your eyes and listen to her tone, pain, soul and realness. With her voice, this young singer paints a picture, tells a story and draws you into her artistically. “I respect all the female artist out here today but I’m in a completely different lane. I’m an entertainer. I’ve been vocally trained since the age of 7 and along with my passionate lyrics and my energetic dance moves, I intend to raise the bar on the entertainment circa.” Reared in performing and entertaining since a tender age, K. Michelle describes her upbringing. “My parents were very active in my life growing up. My parents are still together. They had me in ballet, dance and piano. My mother was a stage mom and my father reminded me of Joe Jackson. I didn’t have a bad life like so many singers.” Performing since 5, K was classically trained on the piano for 12 years and her vocal coach was Bob Westbrook, Justin Timberlake’s voice trainer. K’s musical journey also landed her a singing opportunity with George Clinton along with touring and performing with the Chinese Orchestra. K.Michelle is destined for greatness. Talent and charisma will not only get her far but she will surpass her competition to say the least. “My talent speaks for itself but now I’m just waiting for my stars to align. It’s inevitable and I won’t be denied.” Memphis breeds dreamers, thinkers, doers and nothing less. No regrets thus far and K.Michelle is confident in bringing the truth.
