Michelle’s new single “Woman First” is an uplifting song that honors women and the roles they play as nurtures, leaders, and the givers of life!
“This is a song of empowerment for all women and there is no better time than now to release a song that celebrates women! As we have witnessed throughout history and even more recently with the election of our first female Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, women are defying the stereotypes that society has set in place based on gender. We are seeing a rise of women in corporate & political leadership positions, religious leaders, science & medicine, technology, law, and entrepreneurs all over the world.
These women have become influences on generations of women to come, by showing them that women are more than the roles that have been prescribed to them because of gender. Additionally, while these powerful & revolutionary women have achieved great success in their professions, many have balanced being a wife or a single mother while raising their family or serving as a caregiver. And these extraordinary women have done so without any of these responsibilities interrupting or hindering their accomplishments and that is something to celebrate and honor,” Michelle says.
“Woman First” simply highlights the beauty, strength, and joys of womanhood that unites women regardless of race and ethnicity. It is an anthem of empowerment & inspiration for women to celebrate all that they are! “Woman First” is available on all digital media outlets including iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify, and Soundcloud.
