The Hip Hop Enquirer’s EIC Dennis Byron sat down with Laura Michelle for an EXCLUSIVE interview on her musical breakthrough.
HHE: When did you realize that you wanted to be an entertainer?
Laura Michelle: I was probably eight or nine years old when I started writing. When I was about fourteen I went to my mother and said “We have to get a vocal coach, we have to do what we have to do because this is my calling. I’m going to be an entertainer and it’s time to get started.”
HHE: How would you describe yourself as an entertainer?
Laura Michelle: Well, I grew up studying the Motown era. I also grew up studying Prince and Tina Turner, so I definitely use a lot of movement in my performances. I like to put on shows. I grew up going to Broadway plays. I listen to everything; rap, country, hip hop, pop etc. So I try to incorporate that into all of my shows. I make all my costumes, I do it all. I just like to put on a very creative show. When I first started, I had this white throne that I came out on and every time I performed I try to do something different.
HHE: Some of your fans have made a comparison with you and singers like Keri Hilson, Ciara and Rihanna with your style and energy. How would you categorize your type of music?
Laura Michelle: You are absolutely correct, if you want to just put me in a category, I would say pop which means popular music. However, at the same time, I may feel like singing an amazing ballad with an R&B vibe but you can put that all into pop music. Keri Hilson, she has an amazing style, she is an amazing writer.
