Grammy Award winning recording artist Chrisette Michele took time out of her hectic schedule to meet with a few hundred of her fans on Monday, June 13th in Riverdale, GA. Three days after the release of her fifth studio album, Milestone, lucky fans were able to take pictures, get an autographed CD, and chat with the woman described by Entertainment Weekly as a “soulful songbird”.
Michele teased music lovers who had been awaiting another studio album since her 2013 Better and the songstress did not disappoint with this project’s first single, “Steady” released last December. In the song, she musically and boldly showcases her evolved sense of worth and an admirable side dish of bad-A. Her essence and heightened sense of liberation could be felt throughout the venue, during the album signing, as fans nodded to the songs from her album which many liken to her first project.
“A lot of people are comparing it to my first album. They’re saying it has a similar energy. I think I’m equating that to me being in love with the same person for both albums… I just came to that conclusion today. ”
Natural Hair mag was happy to be at the album signing event at DBS Sounds in Riverdale, GA to capture the intimate moments between the beautiful songstress and her fans. Where the singer found time to finish her latest project while acting, releasing her ‘Trap Soul’-infused Steady Gang mixtape earlier this year, prepping for The Milestone Tour in 33 cities among all else, we don’t know. But do head over to Amazon or iTunes to listen and hopefully buy her latest project.
