Artist • Composer • Lyricist
Michelle is like a prism with each refracted ray of light beaming one of her colorful skills. She was raised in the zesty city of Miami, Florida and began her artistic training at the age of 3 with the violin. She later went on to receive formal lessons for piano and voice, and began performing with an Opera Company at the age of 14. She graduated magna cum laude in all three college degrees from Associates to Masters with her studies in Music/Music Education, Theater Arts & Music Business, and Music Vocal Performance respectively.
Currently residing in sunny California, Michelle is beginning to blossom in the field of music and film entertainment. She recently sang on the soundtrack of The Dictator, as well as composed original music for award- winning short film Sumtin’ like ‘Dat written and directed by Andrew Amani. She has also had the honor of working at Del Oro Studios as a studio musician for vocals and violin on various artists’ albums, and is ever so grateful to be a “working musician.”
Audience and Press Reviews
Michelle is very gifted! She performed in my TV Special for PBS and was one of the shining stars in a stage full of world-class performers. She brings her talents and lovely personality along with her outstanding drive and work ethic. These new compositions are just the tip of the iceberg as to what is yet to come.
She is constantly working on her craft so you can be sure to be pleasantly surprised by the gifts she brings to her work. She brings something so modern to her songs, but you can still hear the roots of her classical training in these musical arrangements.
The first time she played me these songs, they were immediately engrained in my mind ? such beautiful melodies! I kept singing them to myself all day long.
