MICHELLE JOHN BIO

Michelle John was born to sing!

Whether it was singing as a child in her local Gospel Choir or recording and touring with stars such as George Michael, Annie Lennox, Mariah Carey and Eric Clapton, the diversity of her musical background and the wide range of Artists she has worked with have given Michelle a great vision for her musical destiny.

At the age of 18 yrs old Michelle was asked to join the UK’s finest Gospel Choir – The London Community Gospel Choir and during her 11 years as a member she toured Europe extensively and participated in various recordings ranging from Spiritualised to Tom Jones. As Michelle progressed and began doing more and more session work, her reputation as a highly talented vocalist flourished.

Michelle experienced the thrills and challenges of Theatre work by appearing in the musical “ Mama I want to Sing “ and also “ Smokey Joe’s Café “ . In 1997 Michelle collaborated with producers M&S and hits such as “ This is it “ and “ Take Control “ were released by The Ministry of Sound recording Label and landed in the Top 20 on the UK Charts. Michelle’s vocal dexterity has allowed her to work with artists covering the whole music spectrum, from the late R&B Diva Whitney Houston to the Legendary Tenor Andrea Bocelli.

Throughout her career, Michelle’s expertise have helped her to craft the voices of tomorrow too through her vocal coaching on Pop Idol and with artists such as Razorlight , Girl’s Aloud, Atomic Kitten, Liberty X, Mis-Teeq, Bryan McFadden and Westlife and most recently Rita Ora.

For the last 13 years, Michelle has worked with Eric Clapton and during this time she has toured North America, South America, Japan, Asia, Australia and Europe . She has also had the pleasure of touring with Will Young on his last 3 UK Tours and the opportunity to perform with Herbie Hancock and Sheryl Crow and recorded with the Phenomenal Lenny Kravitz . Notably Michelle also performed at a concert for President Barak Obama at The White House.

Retro Youth

2015 was a brilliant year for Michelle, as she released her first 5 track EP of songs all written by her which is entitled ” Little Me ” . She also released a Gospel Single with Karl Nova entitled “Shining On “, produced and wrote a Charity single to raise money and awareness for the ” Bring Back our Girls ” Campaign and has been asked to perform the song at many rallies and events in support of the campaign.

In 2016 Michelle continued to work with talents such as Eric Clapton, Will Young, Joss Stone, Paolo Nutini , Ed Sheeran and The 1975 and worked with Carole King on the British Summer Time Hyde Park Concert which was attended by over 50,000 people.

Most recently Michelle has been on a World Tour with Joss Stone promoting her latest album ” Water for your Soul ” which features Michelle on backing vocals.

The Voice UK Quarter Finals

The Voice UK – Michelle John finishes as 4th place Finalist on The Voice UK 2017!

The Voice UK chapter ends and a new one begins!

Michelle John has ended her run on the Final of The Voice UK 2017 with a stunning finish! 4 contestants were dramatically cut to 3 by the public in what must have been a difficult choice with fantastic performances from all the acts last night.

This week Michelle got the chance to perform 2 songs with 1 of them being a duet with her coach and mentor Will.i.am.

First of all Michelle performed the iconic Prince song ‘Purple Rain’, which is an epic track and not easy for anyone to do. But Michelle received a fantastic response from the audience, on social media and in today’s press. Once Michelle had finished hitting high notes in ,Mariah Carey fashion’, Will stated that Prince himself ‘would have loved this version of Purple Rain’. Jennifer Hudson also gushed ‘He would have loved every minute’. How amazing it must have been for Michelle to perform one of her favourite songs to individuals who knew and worked with the music icon.

After the ‘Purple FIYAH’ came the Team Will FIYAH with Michelle and Will.i.am doing a duet of Chaka Khan’s ‘Feel for you’. Michelle said she had so much ‘fun’ performing with Will and you could tell as they delivered an entertaining, vocal fantastic performance full of energy and catchy choreography. The audience could not resist dancing along with Michelle and Will and Jennifer Hudson found herself grooving to the beat in her chair too. Will Young was also in the audience supporting Michelle and enjoying the show in a ‘Vote Mich’ T-shirt gifted to him by her family.

Despite her two Superstar quality performances, Michelle unfortunately did not get enough votes to stay in the competition for the final show tonight. Michelle would have loved to have won such a brilliant competition but as she said ‘I’ve overcome so many things to be here….. I feel like a winner’.

As she left the stage and waved goodbye to the show the remaining contestants shared how much they loved Michelle with a teary-eyed Jamie saying ‘She represents The Voice….Michelle I love you so much’. Mo also hinted at a possible collaboration with Michelle in the future after saying ‘I can’t wait for her to release her album….. Michelle’s sensational’.

With all the support and guidance that Michelle has had from her coach Will, who admits he has had a ‘blast’ working with her it will be interesting to see what happens next? After the Chaka Khan performance it would be great to see more from this pair.

But the continuous support of the great British public voting to keep her in the competition each week and the constant love and admiration that she has received on social from artists she has worked with, celebrities and ‘Mich Power’ fans clearly shows that she has cemented herself as a talented soloist in our hearts whatever her next move may be.

Now Michelle will reflect​ on how far she has come and decide how her journey will continue. However, we do suspect that a Michelle John album is definitely on the cards!

The Voice UK – #MichPower strikes again at the Semi-Final!

Could Michelle John win The Voice UK 2017?

Michelle John has successfully been voted through to the Final of The Voice UK 2017! 8 contestants were dramatically cut to 4 by the public with Michelle announced as the 2nd act to go through.

It was a tremendous night at the West London TV studio with Michelle achieving another standing ovation from the coaches and another winning Public vote in front of a rapturous studio audience and millions of viewers watching at home.

This week Michelle treated us to her take on the brilliant ‘Get Here’ by Oleta Adams. The talent and the voice was undeniable as she delivered an expertly crafted performance sprinkled with some stunning high notes. She was the whole Superstar package and was simply awesome in every way and this has seen her become the final female left in the show!

Jamiroquai, who also performed on the night, congratulated Michelle on social media as he reminded us that she has also worked with him as a backing vocalist. What some may not know is that in the run up to his new release, he once again approached Michelle to do backing vocals but she declined in order to pursue The Voice UK opportunity – Excellent decision Michelle!

This clearly reinforces the message Michelle had for her son Carlos last night, immediately after she sang – ‘chase your dreams!’ A statement that Will.i.Am was also moved by as well as Michelle’s performance which evoked happy memories of his Uncle and Mother who also encouraged him. The other coaches Sir Tom Jones, Gavin Rossdale and Jennifer Hudson were just as impressed with only positive feedback and applause for Michelle.

Now just the last two Grand Final Shows on Saturday 1st April and Sunday 2nd April (Michelle’s Mums 60th Birthday) and 3 contestants stand between Michelle and the highly sought after recording contract with Polydor.

Will Michelle’s dream come true? Will the public help her get there?

Tune in to The Voice UK Final weekend on ITV or STV to see her shine on stage again and VOTE Michelle John to win and secure her very own, well-deserved Record Deal…… #VotePower

Michelle looked like a Superstar singing live with backing singers of her own for the first time on a Big stage – a key milestone in her career so far I am sure. She seemed more confident than ever as she sang powerful lyrics to a studio audience who went wild for her. Social media gushed too as the talented Mum hit the high notes – a truly flawless and empowering delivery of a big anthem.

Will.i.am has done a stella job working with Michelle thus far and the strong song choice was a mark of the coach being truly in tune with his contestant and her journey.
