City Winery St. Louis presents Chrisette Michele Live in concert on Friday, September 1st at 8pm
I’m from Long Island, NY (pronounced “Lawwwng EYE-lind, New Yawk”). I was raised on gospel music. I played sax thru high school. I studied Vocal Jazz Performance in college and I’m obsessed with gowns, books, candles and Sarah Vaughan…no yoga… no Sarah… no yoga. Oh, I also have A.D.D. That’s it in a nutshell.
It’s been about 13 years in the music biz. I’ve sang around the world a few times, released over 100 songs and collaborated with everyone from Jay Z to George Duke, Natalie Cole to Nas and John Legend to Drake. I’ve shared the mic with legends like Patty Labelle and Stevie Wonder and I’ve hit the stage with Rick Ross, Wale, Kirk Franklin, The Ojay’s and Rob Glasper amongst others. I’m blessed. I have a curious set of giftings. It doesn’t quite fit into any box. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Being diverse allows me to love so many different kinds of people and really, love is the point of it all.
If you’ve ever met me, you know I’m a talker. I don’t mind the time it takes for us all to understand each other. If you’ve got the time, I’ve got the patience. My speaking career has brought me to awesome colleges and universities like Harvard, Spelman, Temple and Rutgers and many others. I’ve been honored to speak on panels with organizations like The NAACP, The Congressional Black Caucus, Girl Scouts of America, VH1 Save The Music, The American Heart Association and awesome lifestyle companies like Beauty Con NYC, The World Hair Show, Essence and many more. I love subjects around women’s empowerment, jazz and the evolution of Hip Hop culture. I also love topics around self love and inner peace. It’s been an honor and a privilege and I’m beyond grateful. Respectful conversation is the beginnings of social peace.
