Bio

Born in Harlem NY and raised in North NJ, EssenceMichea has grown up in the best of both worlds. Starting at the tender age of 7, Essence began singing at her home church Mount Olive Baptist Church in Hackensack NJ. This is where she discovered her talent and love for music and the arts. With a passion for dance, music, public speaking and acting, Essence has kept active in all four areas over the past 10 years. In 2004 Essence came in first place for the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. Bergen county talent search, where she then moved on to win second place in the national competition. Essence served as a member of the Grammy nominated Morgan State University Choir at the time of their nomination with Peabody children’s choir. Essence has traveled nationally and performed on world renown stages such as the Meyerhof and Carnegie Hall to name a few. In 2011 EssenceMichea took on a new venture to record an EP titled TruthOrDare:IChoseDare. The title embodied a feeling that many indie artists like Essence face when perusing a music career, "will I allow the odds to discourage me or will I fight because I know this is my destiny". Within just eleven months Michea made that goal come true. Essence Collaborated with Kenny Fernandez of Final Round Productions to produce and mix the EP as well as producers Mav, Kick & Snare, and Epik da Dawn. With a hit single Love You Better featuring Queens rapper Just FLoW, Essence began to make her mark on the indie world in November of 2011. This was followed by a music video for Love You Better and a second single entitled Friction. In preparation for the release of TruthOrDare:IChoseDare, EssenceMichea performed for the 2nd installment of MamaImmaMakeIt hosted by Sammy Aye and Derrick Swerve, Spotlight Live hosted by D Prados and XL Lounge. TruthOrDare:IChoseDare released March 8, 2012, significant to EssenceMichea' because it is her date of birth. "I wanted everything about this project to be meaningful to me so my birthday was the right day to give my baby to the world." The EP is now available for free download at Mediafire.com. 'My goal is to no longer write my goals with pen and paper but with a Mic in front of the world." For the rest of 2012 EssenceMichea will be touring locally and working on her actual album.
