Michon c. Young
Michon C. Young is a proud native of Gary, Indiana. She has resided in Michigan for the past 16 years and considers Detroit, MI her second hometown.
A gifted psalmist and song writer, Michon has been singing and writing since the age of 12. Michon started her professional musical career by being hand selected by Pastor Marvin L. Winans to sing background on his debut concert in Detroit, Michigan for the release of his 1st solo CD, “Alone but Not Alone”. She has traveled extensively singing background for Pastor Winans and was honored to sing a duet with him at the Grand Opening of Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Michon has also opened for such world renowned artists such as Grammy Award Winner CeCe Winans, Karen Clark Sheard, renowned Jazz trumpeter TL Williams and a host of others. She has also appeared on several nationally syndicated televised programs including the Dorinda Clark-Cole show. Michon released her first single “Something About You” from her upcoming project, “Love, Life, Experiences” in July 2016. This song reached #1 on the UK Soul Charts in September 2016 and continues to soar. Her debut R&B album “Love,Life,Experiences” has twelve original songs Michon wrote from the heart expressing the pleasure and pain of LOVE, the joys and struggles of LIFE and the many good, yet sometimes difficult EXPERIENCES in dealing with them all.
I have always believed that music is love. It is universal. It can soothe the soul, bring tears to your eyes or simply just place you in a reflective state. Either way, music has the ability to penetrate the heart and invoke many genuine, real emotions. Each song on this project is taken from a personal experience. Each song represents a part of my life that most can relate to e.g. the joy and excitement of love, the hurt that love can sometimes bring and the encouragement that you sometimes must give yourself when you’re left facing life alone. This project takes you on a journey from beginning to end. For me, this musical journey was written from experiencing the pain of lost love but also the joy of finding new love again. It also lyrically expresses the concerns about the divisive world we’re living in today and the importance of uniting as one. Many songs on this project are filled with Live instrumentation. I’ve always been a fan of old school great musical composition and the way it merged with sound lyrical content. “Love, Life, Experiences”, tells a story similar to the stories told in years past by songwriters and musicians alike. This is my story. My hope is that at least one song from this project will touch a heart, involve a raw emotion, soothe the soul, uplift and inspire. I hope many will enjoy the journey and musical ride of “Love,Life,Experiences”. - Michon
