Lead Vocals, Guitar
“Michelle is better than 99% of the lead singers in 99% of the local bands 100% of the time.” – Metroland Magazine
By the age of three, Michelle’s mother knew her daughter had a special talent. Michelle would run up on stage, where her Mom worked, and sing into a microphone. At that time Michelle didn’t converse except to repeat words. A doctor told her Mom that she was autistic and intellectually disabled and would probably never be able to have conversations. Michelle has since become one of the most expressive, outgoing stage performers around, connecting with audiences like no one else.
In 1993 Michelle and her mother moved to Gloversville from New York City. In 2003 Michelle won a Lexington talent show and expressed her interest in starting a band, which led to the creation of FLAME. Michelle amazes and inspires people of all ages with her incredible voice and guitar playing. She has a great ability to understand and quickly figure out musical instruments and songs. Music is a big part of Michelle’s life. She performs for people at Lexington, gives guitar lessons and enjoys listening to music and going to concerts. Her beautiful voice and tremendous range allow her to sing rock, blues, country, and pop classics.
