TULSA, OKLAHOMA –
The embodiment of Pure excitement,energy, and life –is undoubtedly an understatement when is comes to Michelle Love. With the release of her debut album “Michelle Love Stand, on November 6th, this highly energetic diva, and songwriter has turned her passion for music, dance, and plain outstanding showmanship into an album of unorthodoxed Gospel/Funk that can be danced to in the clubscene.
