Imagine a mix of a young Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Diane Warren. Throw in an exotic, beautiful actress. You have Michaela, a young self-contained, versatile, pop artist with staying power. A powerhouse who transcends music. An impact artist in the multi billion dollar music industry.
Michaela is a multi-talented 15 year old singer, songwriter, producer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and actress. She has been singing and performing for audiences since she was 3 years old. Michaela also began writing and composing songs on the piano at the young age of 6 years old.
At 9 years old, Michaela wrote “Comprehend”, a song that became a Finalist in the 2008 International Songwriting Competition. The competition had over 15,500 entrants from over 100 countries. The song was in the top 15 and received “Honorable Mention” in the “Teen” category.
Michaela started acting professionally on stage at 5 years old, and made her TV debut as a co-star on the Nickelodeon show iCarly at 9 years old.
Michaela is a featured singer on two popular “Dance Dance Revolution”
games for the Wii, "Hottest Party 2" and "Disney Grooves".
Yoshitaka Nishimura (aka DJ Yoshitaka), renowned Japanese composer, personally selected Michaela to write a song for (“Super Hero”) to include on “Hottest Party 2”.
At 10 years old, as a result of her dancing skills, Michaela was accepted into all adult (over 17) Hip Hop classes at the famed Millennium Dance Complex in Los Angeles.
Michaela has always been a compassionate person, who understands the importance of being involved in the community. At 11 years old, she wrote, produced, and performed the theme song for the Music Helping Haiti Beneﬁt Concert in Washington DC, titled "We Can Stand". She also performed the song at The Organization of American States in Washington DC for several Ambassadors. In April, 2011, she performed the song at The Japan Relief Benefit Concert in Los Angeles, backed by The Agape Youth Choir. “We Can Stand” was a Semi-Finalist in the “Lyric” category of the 2010 International Songwriting Competition.
Raymond Joseph, Haitian Ambassador to the United States, invited Michaela to perform “We Can Stand” at The Embassy Of Haiti in Washington DC. After hearing her sing, Mr. Joseph commented, “You touched me with it, you touched me. That voice. I kept humming with you”.
At 12 years old, Michaela composed, arranged, produced, and sang all 15 songs of an audio book, “Rhymz for the Nursoulry”. The book is a collection of nursery rhymes inspired by the lives of Africans in America. It was released in February, 2012. The audio book is currently being produced into a play by a Broadway playwright.
Dr. Johnnetta B. Cole, director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art, stated she was “very proud of Michaela for writing the music, singing the vocals, playing the instruments, and producing the CD that comes with the “Rhymz for the Nursoulry” book”.
The proof is in. The journey has begun. Michaela is already setting standards through her accomplishments. She is not only the now, she is the next.
