 R&B Singer, Michel’le Performs at Yoshi’s in Oakland, CA

Michel’le donates a portion of show proceeds to Crisis Support Services of Alameda

OAKLAND, CA – One of the most exciting women in R&B is taking the stage at Yoshi’s in Oakland, CA, for a special live performance on November, 26, 2014.  Michel’le is scheduled to perform two shows, 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm.  A meet & greet for true fans of this powerful songstress will kick-off the spectacular evening.  A portion of the shows proceeds will be donated to Crisis Support Services of Alameda County.  Yoshi’s is located at 510 Embarcadero W, Oakland, CA 94607.

Michel’le Toussant is an R&B recording artist and songwriter who will forever hold a place in music history as one of the most important female voices in the history of the West Coast Hip Hop Movement. Signed to Ruthless Records as a teenager, her label mates included pioneers such as Eazy E, NWA and the D.O.C. Unlike the gritty, hard hitting rap music previously produced by Ruthless Records, Michel’le’s melodic, yet powerful vocals offered an amazing contrast on her debut album “Michel’le” which was produced entirely by Andre “Dr. Dre” Young and Executive Produced by Eric “Eazy E” Wright.

She now has new music on the horizon, a book in the works, voiceover projects, and performances across the country; Michel’le is making her move back into the spotlight. Her first major endeavor was joining the cast of the TVOne reality show “R&B Divas LA”, where she quickly showcased her fun loving personality, and witty humor, making her an unexpected fan favorite. Michel’le who has been termed appropriately as “One of the true, West Coat Urban Music Icons”, is preparing to share her story the only way she can, from her unique and singular point of view. She will let her fans into her world in a way she has never done before and allow her fans to see the highs and lows of being the First Lady of West Coast Rap.
