Chrisette Michele's "Epiphany"

Chrisette Michele is the definition of real music! I am so mesmerized by her new album “Epiphany,” her sophomore album, which just dropped May 5, 2009. Each song is like a teardrop of heartfelt poetry in your ear. I remember seeing Chrisette perform at The Black Cat in DC before her debut album “I AM” came out. She possessed such a strong presence of a lady but more so an amazing classic demeanor from the 1920s. In an interview following the debut album “I AM” Chrisette talked about how she has definitely been influenced by singers from a different era. She came to us as such a soft heartfelt young lady opening her heart to us. This album “Epiphany” can be described as the adaptation of a strong woman! She has truly grown. Her voice was already sultry like that of Sara Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday but this album is different because she takes you there! I know that I have a classic on my hands when I have no problem letting the whole CD play on repeat… this one is a winner! It is so hard to pick a favorite from this album but so far my picks are “Porcelain Doll,” “All I ever think about is You,” and “Mr. Right.” However I enjoy each song on the album equally and might not be doing it justice by picking favorites. I love the whole CD. Definitely can relate to this album. It sounds like Chrisette has been through some things and you can pick up on the passion in the songs even better when you witness it live. So I'll let you be the judge! Below are some videos from a performance Chrisette did for Vh1 SoulStage. Enjoy!





As always remember to be "REEL" and stay on the MOVE!
