Former Miss Tennessee State University Myshel Wilkins is set to release her debut album, Relentless, on May 15, 2012.
If you attended TSU (or any HBCU) you know how important and influential your elected Queen can be. Myshel, now a recording artist and motivational speaker, was one of the best queens elected to represent the institution. During my time at TSU, I remember Myshel for being beautiful, kind, and gracious. Myshel went on to win many crowns, including Miss National Black Hall of Fame. No matter the stage, Myshel uses her good looks, personality, and great voice to encourage, inspire, and influence her listeners.
On her blog, Myshel says her music is a "true representation of her heart". After waiting plenty of years to debut, Myshel wanted to record an album that is music she enjoyed and showed her honest spirit:
"I care about why you hurt and this is reflected in the songs I write…I am an atmosphere changer…I want my songs to be smarter than me without restraint. I want the music to help you see something you might have overlooked within. I want to always be honest with the listener. I will sing songs that don’t require that you have quickly reduce the volume when your children come around. I want to be a safe place. I want it to bring healing." (source)With a heart for her audience, listeners should anticipate an awesome project from this great vocal talent.
Myshel will hold a live listening party at The Franklin Theater on April 9th. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased on Myshel's official website: www.myshelmusic.com. Make sure to be in the place!
