Other than Valentine’s Day, there is another great reason to celebrate the month of love. The Voice alumna Michelle Chamuel is set to release her follow up to 2013’s All I Want on February 10th. Face the Fire, Michelle’s upcoming album, promises to show how genuine she really is as an artist. The singer who made Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” during her stint on The Voice rock, as well as made Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” an anthem, can transform popular pop songs into edgier versions. Thus, it is no doubt that she will bring out the best in her when she releases the album, as exemplified by previously released singles “Lottery” and “Golden.”
Although Michelle Chamuel has been very busy with her Turn it Up Tour in 2014, the mainstream audience last saw her when she sang her original “Go Down Singing” on The Voice way back in Season 4. Therefore, it is really high time that she releases an album that will remind the world how promising she really is.
This Team Usher graduate has already proven her worth as an artist. As vocalist of Ella Riot, she proved how she could influence change through music. Meanwhile, as The Reverb Junkie, she executed her production expertise through her EDM album, All I Want, which peaked at Number 6 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic album chart. Now, as her own self, she is going to affirm how staying true to one’s own self can make somebody shine bright. During her stay on The Voice, Team Usher’s mentor Pharell Williams noted how much star potential Michelle has. Now, it is time to actualize that potential everybody knew she has.
Few days before the Face the Fire release, it is exciting to note how much Michelle has grown as an artist. First, it is interesting to hear what she and her girlfriend, Mary Lambert, came up with during their time in the studio. Second, it is noteworthy to discover the type of songs Michelle actually selected to be a part of the album. We know that she can sing anything, but Face the Fire will show us what music will represent her own person. Probably, Michelle is one of the truest persons in music. But to what extent, Face the Fire might tell.
