FEBRUARY 23rd: Chrisette Michelle at 9:30club with Laura Izibor
It has been two years since sultry voiced singer Chrisette Michele released her debut I Am. Blessed with a gorgeous instrument and described as a “soulful songbird” by Entertainment Weekly, she proved to the world that she could live up to the hype. Nominated for a BET Award for Best New Artist as well as two Grammys, I Am was both a critical success and a fans delight. Still, when it came time to begin recording her follow-up, Epiphany, she realized the need to challenge herself.
