Briclyn Ent. presents A Tribute to Nina Simone featuring Michelle D. Bennett
Michelle D. Bennett, a native of Indianapolis, Indiana, and daughter of a preacher, Michelle tapped into her musical talents at a very young age. While other children were playing, Michelle was on her front porch singing and playing the tambourine. By the age of 10, she was serving as the drummer of her father’s church and by 13, she was teaching and directing the choir.
After moving to Chicago, Michelle began to develop her musical talents and joined Gospel music groups Visions-A Choral Ministry, and later Just Friends, where she served as a member and integral voice for several years. She also was a member of Class Act Entertainment, honing her skills singing cover songs of her favorite female artists. Often compared to the vocal stylings of Oleta Adams and Nina Simone, Michelle has a unique, soulful sound that touches and mesmerizes the soul of each listener.
Michelle has shared the stage with gospel recording artists such as Kurt Carr, Rance Allen, Lisa Page Brooks, VaShawn Mitchell, Lonnie Hunter, Dorothy Norwood, and the late Albertina Walker, just to name a few. She has toured abroad in Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the British Virgin Islands. In 2016, Michelle released her first single “In This Place”, which was nominated for Praise and Worship Song of the Year by Rhythm of Gospel Music Awards. She was also nominated for both Praise and Worship Female Vocalist of the Year and Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year. Michelle's highly anticipated EP, “I Finally Found My Place” was released March 2, 2017.
Michelle relocated to the DC Metropolitan area in January 2010 and continues to hone her craft. She possesses an effervescence that is exuded both on and off stage. Her compelling presence, along with her sound will leave you wanting more. Her desire is to always be a shining light in this world as she shares her gift of song.
