Grammy–winning R&B vocalist Chrisette Michele has a show on April 28 in the Armstrong Atlantic State University fine arts auditorium.
In 2007, Michele won a Grammy for the will.i.am.–produced “Be O.K.,” from her I Am album. Her latest single, “I’m a Star,” was written by Ne–Yo.
Known for her work with hip hop legend Rick Ross (“Aston Martin Music” with the Canadian vocalist Drake, and “So In Love”), Michele hit No. 1 on the Billboard chart with her second album, Epiphany.
Her third full–length project, Let Freedom Reign, was released last November.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $10 students, $20 general public (going up to $25 on the day of show), at etix.com.
