About Chrisette Michele

Building on the success of "Epiphany," her current Top 10 single on Billboard's Hot Adult R&B Airplay chart (and Top 20 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart), Grammy Award-winning Def Jam recording artist Chrisette Michele debuts at #1 on Soundscan with first week sales of more than 83,000 copies of EPIPHANY, her long-awaited second album.

Coming up, Chrisette will share the stage on one of this spring and summer's highest-profile tours, with fellow Grammy winner Anthony Hamilton and soulman Musiq Soulchild. Dates begin May 28th at Reliant Arena in Houston, and wrap up one month later at Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte.

"Blessed with a curvy, Billie Holiday-like vocal timbre and an exquisite sense of melody, Michele consistently rejects melodrama (take some notes, Amy Winehouse!), instead going further into the nuances of meaningful expression." - LOS ANGELES TIMES
