Interview with Lee Michelle
Because my mother was the head of the family, she was very strict and at times kind of stern. My siblings’ personalities were nearly all like that as well but when it was time to play, we had lots of humorous laughs and fun.
The youngest of my older sisters played a mother’s role for me a lot particularly on my character building.
Since I was 5~6 years old I used to sing along to the songs playing on TV or the radio and used to sing harmonizing with my sister. When I was a freshman in High school I learned singing at a practical music academy for a short while and the teacher there said I had talent. I started learning singing properly when I became a junior in High school.
For Korean artists, I admire Moon-Sae Lee, Yong-Pil Cho and Lyn. (She added선배님 after each of their names. Sun-bae is a respectful term meaning ‘senior’)
For oversee’s artists I admire Beyonce, Idia Arie and Ledisi.
It always depends. Nowadays I listen to ‘Treasure’ by Bruno Mars the most.
I am just so grateful rather than just being satisfied. I’m just very thankful ‘cause I hadn’t thought there would be so many fans are out there liking and supporting me. All the more I’m just happy because of the people who are content from listening to my music.
I don’t have any wishes, I am just content with the current life God has given me.
I am able to think positively in any given situation, even if it’s the gloomiest state. I am at times more naive than I need to be.
In meeting with God.
I sometimes make one up when I sing.
I like someone who is like a bear. My ideal is someone who is heavy and attractive, rather than a tall person with good looks.
I like wearing shirts, Man to Man T-shirts and jackets. It’s always the best to dress casually.
When I was a high schooler I had to earn the tuition fee for the academy so I got a job at a fast food restaurant. I took orders, worked as a cashier and made burgers.
I love to watch videos of other artists on youtube, I can also watch concerts I couldn’t go to in person. When I listen to diverse music I often feel that I want to make better music.
When I first started music I had in mind that “I must make music if there is even just one single person in this world who is happy, encouraged or be comforted through my music.” I wish I would continue without losing that in mind and make music of diverse genres and contents.
First, I thank you all very much. I’ve always considered myself a very small person, thank you very much for loving me and my music.I sing about something not everyone can sing about, but I hope make music that anyone can sing along to easily. Please root for me, I am going to try to be that kind of an artist.A singer who sings about life. Thank you!
