Chrisette Michele - R&B Singer Songwriter 6:15pm
Let Freedom Reign Available Everywhere Now!
Surrounded by music since she was a small child, twenty-three year old singer, songwriter and composer Chrisette Michele has been blessed with an old soul and this Long Island bred songwriter and vocalist has a deep appreciation for the harmonic foundations that includes gospel and jazz. "I did my first solo when I was four years old," Chrisette remembers.
Currently putting the finishing touches on her soulful debut album, an artistic exploration that fuses Chrisette's diverse musical interest into a wonderland, the young artist couldn't be more pleased. "I realize that I'm new to the music world, but I've been preparing for this moment for long time."
Dr. Nicole LaBeach - Author, Relationship Coach 7:15pm
Representing a new generation of life, relationship, and executive coaches, Dr. Nicole is a Success Strategist who has changed the lives of all who dared to strive for their personal best. She is the host of the “Dr. Nicole Show” on Blog Talk Radio, and is also the CEO of Volition Enterprises, Inc., a premiere personal and professional development firm.
As author of the life-changing books “A Woman’s True Purpose: Live Like You Matter” and “Choose Yourself: A Journey Toward Personal Fulfillment for Women,” radio personalities from Steve Harvey to Tom Joyner, Sally Jessy Raphael, and Jesse Dylan have all shared her expertise with their listeners.
Time away from the spotlight can be a bad thing.
But for Chrisette Michele, it was a necessary thing. Without the break, there is a strong possibility she wouldn’t be sitting in her Williamsburg apartment on a crisp morning, excitedly talking about her brand new album, Better.
To say the album title is fitting would be an understatement. Chrisette is giddy and proud to share the name of her fourth album with anyone who asks if only because she is a living embodiment of the word. “I’ve sang a lot of broken-hearted love songs because I had a broken heart from love,” says Chrisette. “I began to write a little bit darker. And for me, dark just means a song that doesn’t have a happy ending.”
On Better, even when Chrisette is laying her heart out on a table, she sounds confident and composed. Whether it’s the emotional Prince-like balladry of “You Mean That Much To Me” or the stern warning of “Snow,” Chrisette sounds independent and resolute. Even on “Soopa” a song where she explains to her lover that she won’t always be the perfect woman, Chrisette isn’t apologizing for her flaws as much she’s telling him, take it or leave it, and if you leave it, that’s okay.

Chrisette Michele: Five Months Later,
I STILL Haven’t Got My Grammy!
Good things come to those who wait. And wait. And wait – and are still waiting as we speak. So goes the tale of R&B diva Chrisette Michele, upon whom, on Feb. 8, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences bestowed Best Urban/Alternative Performance honors. Otherwise put, girl snagged a Grammy.
It was Chrisette’s first, for the track Be OK, after having been nominated two years ago in the Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, for If I Have My Way.But this week on Mutha Knows, she revealed a frustrastion with the honor.
“Where’s it at? Where you got that Grammy?” asked host Mutha. “I haven’t gotten it yet,” said Chrisette. “It’s on its way somewhere in a box from Fedex – on its way to my house? I don’t know.” “Wow! How long does it take?” said Mutha. “I have no idea! And when was it – February? We in July now. I ain’t gonna say nothin’ crazy, though,” promised Chrisette. But then she added: “No, I’m nice and, ahm, calm.”
