Chrisette had us in admiration while modeling her new bold, blonde haircut and wearing
a chic black blazer over a printed t-shirt and lack ieans. She exuded a very pleasant
and charming personality as we conducted her interview. It is evident her personality
in her music.
Her jazzy, neosoul sound pulls us closer to her soul as does "Epiphany" seems to
be able to do for us. With the help of Neyo, the sultry songbird sings about breaking
up and falling in love.
Chrisette, age 26, is a native of Patchogue, NY where her father was a deacon of
their church and her mother was the choir director. Chrisette had led the gospel
choir in her high school. She graduated from Five Towns College with a vocal performance

She made her acting debut in "The CW's Girlfriends" in 2008, guest starring as herself.
C hrisette received the BET J Virtual Awards in 2008 and Grammy Award in 2009.

Billie Holiday appeal, as she is most often compared to. Her single, "If I Have My
from her first album, "I Am", was a slow, very sexy and passionate melody about how
would be with someone she is admiring if she, of course, had her way. That single
introduced us to Chrisette Michelle as a soloist. Even her black and white music
video of her on stage singing to a one man audience proved to us that musically,
Chrisette is definitely older thanher time.
Chrisette admits being "shy and laidback" when she first started and "wanted to make
songs that were more edgy, youthful and urban". "Epiphany" is indeed a much edgier
side of Chrisette. Although it took almost two years for the release of her second
"Epiphany" has proven that it was worth the wait.
It has also proven itself by charting
number one of the Billboard 200 countdown in its debut week. "Epiphany", also
the album's single, is not the only song that catches the attention to many
fans on her second album. "Epiphany" fun sounding journey takes us through a break
up between her and her man due to his insensitivity for the relationship.
