Grammy Award winner Chrisette Michele has no shame in voicing her love for Beyonce. Speaking with Singersroom at the recent 2011 SESAC Awards, Chrisette let it be known that she was a fan of the Pop/R&B diva and how she goes about her business.
“Beyonce can’t do any wrong by me, Unfortunately fortunately I’m one of her biggest fans so I don’t know if that’s good or bad,” Chrisette tells Singersroom. “But I will tell you one thing that I think is really interesting, that terrapin that she has on on the cover of the single [Run The World (Girls)], I thought that was so cool. I think that she switches it up whenever she feels like it and does what she wants to do and she does it in a star like manner. Everything that she does is tasteful so I love Beyonce.
Along with touring and promoting her latest album, Let Freedom Reign, released in late 2010, and recording her first Gospel record, Chrisette has been doing several charity events and she plans to turn it into a tour via her out imprint.
“Right now I’m working on a gospel album and I’m working on a charity tour through my company Charity Fan. We’re going out and just getting our hands dirty all around the country and even around the world,” Chrisette tells us. “We try to get out on every single tour date and see as many kids as possible or as many people as possible. A lot of kids don’t have a lot of books in their house to read so we were giving away books and reading stories and encouraging kids to just open up books and read.”
As far as music goes, don’t expect Chrisette to crossover into the pop trend anytime soon. “You know what, who really knows what that meansâ¦what’s more important to me is that I keep my heart in it the entire time,” She says. “The next sound that you hear from me will be gospel.”
