Yes indeed! Last night, I was FINALLY able to check out R&B sensation Chrisette Michele at Clark Atlanta University for an EXCLUSIVE listening party of her new album… “Milestone”. And let me tell you… this newly engaged diva has a little surprise “hip hop flavor” for world! Chrisette graciously shared music from her upcoming project for the very first time and provided the lucky students with an inside look of how she put it all together.
“I’ve always loved hip hop… and always wanted to be that vixen girl in the rap video looking cute”. -Chrisette
In true fashion… I couldn’t stay long (promised the boys a Star Wars movie night) but was able to hear the first song and WOW! Chrisette lends her soulful & silky voice to a smooth hip hop track. To be honest… it’s actually a perfect storm. I’ve photographed her in concert for the Atlanta Jazz Festival (see previous post) and know exactly how this powerhouse explodes on the stage. Can’t wait till album drops in 2016
On a side note: I am SO proud of my friend and publicist Sheena Wilder (Primas PR)…. the team behind Chrisette. We have watched each other and have grown in this entertainment industry… I’m so happy to see her living her dream. It was such a thrill to watch her in ACTION…making sure everything was in place for her client. GO SHEENA!!
Enjoy the pics I snapped!
