An Evening with Emeline Michel: Hear the Stories Behind Her Success | The Haitian Times


Born in Gonaives, Haiti, her first experience in music was singing gospel songs in a local church. After completing her education, Emeline accepted an opportunity to study at the Detroit Jazz Center and returned to Haiti as a professional musician. Emeline’s debut album, Douvanjou ke leve, featuring the hit song “Plezi Mize” (Pleasure in Misery) was written by Beethova Obas.

Emeline Michel is considered the reigning Queen of Haitian Song. A captivating performer, versatile vocalist and one of the premier Haitian songwriters of her generation, Emeline has recorded and appeared on concert stages throughout the Caribbean, Europe, and North & South America. Singing in both French and Haitian Creole, her ten albums have catapulted her to international acclaim. Her most recent album, Quintessence, was released earlier this year. via | The Haitian Times
