Day 58, another fabulous “family soccer day,” and while driving home we were pumpin’ Chrisette Michele. She’s one of my favorite most recent breakout artists, who’s been responsible for contributing her seducing voice to numerous songs of your favorite artists like Jay-Z, Nas and The Roots for starters. Her album I AM was incredible all the way through and what I found just as enjoyable were her “eyes.” There’s something about those eyes of hers that makes her dreamy and with the combination of her voice she could probably charm a cobra snake from a basket.

Right around the time I first signed onto FaceBook, was about the time that I heard about her Grammy Nomination as I posted a comment of Good Wishes on her Fanpage. She didn’t comment back, but I wasn’t expecting that anyway as she has way too may fans to count and reply too. It’s All Good! The video above is the song that captured the Best Urban/Altertative Performance Award at the 51 Grammy Awards with the assistance of Will.I.Am on the track. I hope to hear and see more of Chrisette in the years to come. I think she is more powerful and more deserving than the more noted and awarded female singers in the field, without naming any, she’s the one I’d more preferably like to see getting ALL of the attention. Oh, Jill Scott is my girl to..she also has those dreamy eyes and a voice that touches the soul.
