In preparation of her upcoming mixtape, Chrisette Michele has released a full video for her cover of Adele’s “Hello”.
In it, the Grammy Award winner, has a sit-down talk with an invited guest filtered through a black and white vignette. Adding her soprano runs to the song, she gives a jazzy feel to the hit song.
On Instagram she commented about the debut and her excitement about the upcoming mixtape, The SteadyGang Mixtape available on Feb. 27. “Mixtapes are a time when artists can play and share with out any expense or charge to fans. It’s a moment where we don’t have to take it too seriously. We can play and be artists.”
I’ve gifted myself with the privilege of enjoying art, creating this mixtape. I’m happy that people might take a moment to ignore color and enjoy the idea that some people just like to sing.
In addition to releasing a mixtape, the 33-year-old is also working on her fifth studio album, Milestone and documenting her engagement to manager and longtime partner, Doug Ellison on her video series “Becoming Mrs. Ellison” on Rich Hipster TV.
She shared the news of her engagement on Instagram and talked about wedding plans on “The Scoop Reloaded”. Michele noted,”We haven’t decided on a wedding date. I know where I want to get married though. I want to get married at Oheka Castle in New York,” she shared. “That’s like a dream of mine.”
Sounds like 2016 will be a monumental year for the talented artist.
