On Thursday evening, February 18th, Johnny D’s in Somerville is the place to be for fantastic world music and dancing fun. All of the proceeds from this Haitian relief benefit concert will go to support Oxfam America in their efforts to bring much needed aide to the citizens of this country in crisis. Headlining the show will be one of Haiti’s biggest and brightest stars ever, songstress Emeline Michel, to be accompanied by Boston’s local world music greats Zili Misik, Samba Tremeterra, and Alex Alvear.
Singing sensation Emeline Michel has been dubbed “The Queen of Haitian Song” and is enjoying a stellar career spanning over two decades thus far. Also an accomplished songwriter and producer, she has endeared countless fans of her native homeland and world-wide with her mesmerizing stage presence and trademark style, which is a blend of traditional Haitian beats such as compas, rara, and twoubadou and other genres including, jazz, pop, bossa nova, and samba. All this is punctuated with wildly popular socially concious, uplifting, and though-provoking lyrics.
From gospel singer at her local church, Michel’s career has propelled her to national stardom, not only in her native Haiti, but where she has lived elsewhere in her travels, including France, Canada, and the United States. She has gone on to become a favorite amongst singing fans in the Caribbean area and world-wide, as well. After landing numerous recording contracts in all of the countries where she has worked during this lengthy career, she has now formed her own production company, Production Choral De Feu, in order to better project her own pure artistic vision to the rest of the world. This vision has earned her such honorable performance invitations as to be the leading act at former president Clinton’s 2006 Clinton Global Initiative, a prestigious gathering of over 2,000 of the world’s most influential leaders and philosophers.
Don’t miss out on what promises to be a night of fabulous entertainment. Best if all, its for such a great cause!
