Ever since Chrisette Michele’s Grammy-Award winning sultry voice was introduced to the music world back in 2006, the soulful Rich Hipster and R&B diva has been busy with her upcoming projects. Although currently touring, Chrisette Michele is putting her hands into various artistic endeavors like the true artist she is.
As an artist who lives outside the box, Chrisette Michele breaks the boundaries of culture and barriers. Influenced by her fascination of hipster culture, she launched her fashion line and website RichHipster.Biz on Aug. 11. The site features photographs she has taken of different types of hipster culture. These photographs are found on the Rich Hipster T-shirt line. “Rich Hipster”, is a term she coined for people who believe they are “rich at heart and rich at art.” Truly, rich hipster personifies who she is.
Chrisette Michele most recently appeared as one of the divas on the TV One reality show R&B Divas: L.A., which includes other divas, Li’l Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Chante Moore, Michel’le, and LeeLa James. Growing up listening to alternative rock, and later getting into R&B after entering the music industry, Chrisette Michelle quickly learned to become a diva by Patti LaBelle. From touring for eight straight years and into the limelight of reality television, Chrisette Michele opens up her private life to showcase herself to who she is outside of music and the idea of who Chrisette Michele is.
Coming off of the Grammy-nominated album, “Better,” the songstress has also been working on her anticipated album, the “Lyricist Opus”, due out on Sep. 16. Fully recorded and followed during R&B Divas: L.A, the stripped-down acoustic album will feature an all-live orchestra and contain material about acceptance, finding what really matters, and believing in yourself. In an interview with SD Entertainer, Chrisette Michele reflects on what she wants people to see in her,
“ […] I think it is imperative that what I put into my brand, into whatever Chrisette Michelle is, be reflective of the purity and the calmness and the peace that I have now. If I can give what I have now through music, then I will. If I can give it to them through an interview, through what I saw, then I will. So that’s important to me.”
