R&B Songstress K Michelle Releases First Single From the Long Awaited Debut Album, "Rebellious Soul", Set to Hit Streets July 30th

Live Showcase Scheduled for New York -- June 6; Launches National "Rebel Against" Campaign, Urging Fans to Push Towards Social Empowerment

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - After countless sold out shows in major cities, a mixtape and singles with lyrics that throngs of fans know by heart, everyone's favorite R&B bad girl K Michelle, is set to release "Very Special" (VSOP), the first single from her fan demanded debut album, "Rebellious Soul", scheduled to hit the streets on July 30th, which is currently available on iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/v.s.o.p.-single/id647540351). With a sample of Debra Laws beloved 1981 hit record with the same title, and sung in the key of heavenly, K Michelle tells the sultry tale of a night of romance over a remixed beat of live strings and instruments. Having began her career as a classically trained pianist and completing college on a yodeling scholarship, there is no surprise K Michelle, who has been singing since a child, would painstakingly incorporate an orchestra into her freshman debut. Just another unexpected nuance about the reality television star that keeps fans intrigued.

Those same fans who pack out performance halls to hear this songbird sing, will have the opportunity to see her perform at a live showcase. On sale through Live Nation, fans can catch her in New York on June 6th (http://www.livenation.com/events/247317/jun-6-2013/k-michelle?ui=event-row).

Keeping in the spirit of the album's title, "Rebellious Soul", K Michelle, currently managed by MBK Entertainment, has chosen to use the release of this album to impact the lives of the fans that have been drawn to her because of her openness with her own story of survival. The "Rebel Against" campaign was born out of the need to encourage fans to face head on and speak out against those social and personal hurdles. This national campaign has paired K Michelle with youth and women's organization and will spark career long town halls, conversations and events.
