Michelle Chamuel At Chop Suey 12/2
She won the hearts of many as runner-up in NBC’s season four of The Voice where she represented Team Usher, and for good reason. Michelle Chamuel seriously packs a punch with her incredibly powerful mezzo belt and her honest delivery on stage. And on the first stop of her Turn it Up Tour in Seattle, Michelle certainly left a great lasting impression on the crowd of dedicated fans.
Tucked away in Capitol Hill, the hipster-y sub-neighborhood of Seattle, Chop Suey hosts a slew of alternative and indie bands and artists that are on the rise almost every night of the week. Holding about 550 people in the standing room and full bar area, it was practically filled to the rim for Michelle Chamuel.
Throughout the night she gave us the down low on what we could expect from her upcoming album, Face the Fire. Like her previous projects, Ella Riot and The Reverb Junkie, her new material incorporated a handful of electro-dance elements, but it has also been vamped up with extremely catchy pop melodies that are radio-ready, and even some dubstep-y EDM was thrown in the mix while still maintaining a very indie vibe in her songwriting style to complete a very unique sound.
Although Michelle has a style of her own, her vocal prowess allows her to sing pretty much anything from an epic pop ballad, a dance to an R&B standard. She covered Mary J. Blige’s 90’s hit “Real Love” flawlessly with her ability to execute clean vocal runs and her capacity to emote so much soul.
