Michelle SgP has been described as a rare individual. She is a kind of musical cosmopolitan, with a deep understanding of blues, soul and jazz “whose sound reflects her personality”. In 2018 she was nominated for three VIMA awards including Overall Best Female Artiste, and then embarked on an international tour performing her ground-breaking album Multiplicity. 

Now back in Singapore, you can once again experience Michelle SgP’s mastery when she performs a selection of her own songs backed by her acoustic trio and all-woman eight-string ensemble from Vocalise Strings. With arrangements by Bang Wenfu and Germaine Goh, it’s bound to be a phenomenal night of live music.michelle sgp on piano and conductor

The Chamber Orchestra Special, titled She Shines SG, will feature many of Michelle SgP’s original songs, including “Dreams” which was chosen as Singapore’s contribution to Unesco’s Dreams at 50 project—a celebration for the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Other songs in the January performance include “Free to Fall“, a self-produced, composed, arranged, sung and recorded hit from 2010, and “Serenity”, a song co-produced with Grammy associated producer Stephen Laurence Harvey, among many others.

Michelle SgP, her acoustic trio and eight-string ensemble directed by Lester Kong will also perform covers of other classic hit songs like “Sweet Child of Mine”, “Leaving on a Jet Plane” and “Both Sides, Now” to round out the show and demonstrate their versatility and prowess.drummer and other musician part of michelle sgp trio
