By SHERRI SMITH/Special to The State Journal Published:

 

Kentucky native and Franklin County High School graduate Michelle Robinson-Wilkins, known as simply “Myshel” to her list of growing fans, will perform selections from her debut album “Relentless” at 7 p.m. Monday, April 9, in a concert at the Historic Franklin Theater in Franklin, Tenn.

“Relentless” is scheduled to be released May 10. 

If interested in traveling to Myshel’s show, you may book your space for a round-trip excursion from Frankfort. Transportation will be provided to Franklin and back the day of the show at a cost of $5. For more information about the trip, call (502) 352-9005.

Tickets for Myshel’s show may be purchased for $10 at www.franklintheater.com. 

Ken Gay, one of the visual effects producers of the Super Bowl 2012 halftime show, will produce Myshel’s show at the Franklin Theater.

Myshel will incorporate two of her favorite charitable partners into her performance – Nashville’s YWCA Weaver Domestic Abuse Center and the W.O. Smith Music School, a Nashville institution that provides music lessons to students of low-income families.

Daughter of a missionary father and a Ghanaian mother, Myshel made her singing debut at the age of seven, and she has since developed into a multi-dimensional artist who creates music to move her listeners.  “Music is a powerful gift that must be used wisely,” she said. “It must speak life and hope.”

And Myshel’s music has done just that.

She was selected from more than 2,000 entries as the winner of the Atlantis Music Conference songwriting competition and has been recognized by Billboard Magazine as “one to watch.”

Myshel has performed in numerous countries, including Trinidad & Tobago, El Salvador, Venezuela, Johannesburg, and Ghana. She has also toured throughout South Africa with R & B artist Tamia, has performed with award winning artists such as Kelly Price, Grammy Award winner Toby Mac, Don Moen, and Matthew West.

Myshel currently performs with Grammy winner Laura Story, Britt Nicole and American Idol’s Mandisa in cities throughout the country.

Myshel’s insight and inspiration doesn’t only speak through music, however. She has won several pageants, using her titles to influence and inspire thousands of young women to look beyond the surface to find the radiant queen within.

Myshel’s pageant success began when she was crowned Miss FCHS during her junior year at Franklin County High School, and her pageant accomplishments continued to grow from there. She attended Tennessee State University and while there, she was crowned Miss Tennessee State University and Miss National Alumni Hall of Fame, a title which made her the winner over all the top Historically Black Colleges and Universities’ (HBCU) queens.

According to Myshel, these pageant accomplishments taught her to carry herself in the public eye and showed her how to relate to and serve the needs of her peers.

After college, Myshel began the pursuit of her dream – becoming a professional singer and recording artist. These dreams are finally being realized with the release of her debut album in Franklin on Monday evening.
