We love to draw inspiration from those who are not afraid to dream big. Singer-songwriter Michelle Green had a successful career as a voice actor and was touring the world with the musical performance group "The Vocapeople" when she decided to pack her bags and move to New York to pursue her solo career. After five years in the Big Apple, Michelle’s passion for her music is just as strong as it was when she first started. With her next album set to be released later this year, she is full of anticipation to reach new ears and hearts.

What was the last song you listened to? And what do you most expect listening to next?
The last song I listened to is “Let It Burn” by Jasmine Sullivan. I discovered it through an episode of “Insecure”, a show I just started watching. Their soundtrack is amazing. I most expect to listen to my finished album, once it’s fully mastered and ready.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a part of people’s life soundtrack, and play my music to as many people on the planet as possible.
How would your 10-year-old self react to what you do today?
She’d be proud. I’ve kept my promise to her to be as passionate about music and making people feel good as she was back then.
What is the one thing we should pay more attention to as human beings?
Self-love. We should be kinder to ourselves and practice self-forgiveness. In order for mankind to be more tolerant and caring towards one another and our planet, we must first start with “the man in the mirror”.
For right now, What or who inspires you the most?
During these crazy times we’re going through right now, what I find most inspiring is mankind. The creativity, generosity, love, humor, and compassion that I see everywhere brings tears to my eyes. There’s a lot of uncertainty at the moment and people all over the world have stepped up to show us we are stronger than this. This is our finest hour and I pray we will maintain this momentum and treat our planet with the same compassion in the future.
What do you most enjoy spending money on?
That’s easy. On my loved ones. And on good desserts.
If you could go back to anytime in history, where would you go?
Probably to the early 90s. I’ve missed so many great concerts because I was too young to go. REM, Pink Floyd, Phil Collins… and the list goes on.
Currently, what is your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge at the moment is finding the right business team, so I could bring my music to as many people as possible. But on a broader scheme, my biggest challenge is figuring out my next step. But I always do 🙂
What is your most irrational fear?
