Rekindling beautiful songs with meaningful lyrics coupled with an infectious rhythm

Michelle started singing at school, joining the choir which led to her wanting to pursue singing as a career. She has worked with many singers and songwriters over the years mainly singing soul and jazz tunes, her first love. She says "I don't think I have lived a day where I haven't sung a song I love" and gets so much pleasure from singing classic songs and learning new ones.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Please let me know if timings change as soon as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

This is a service I will provide in the future by I’m afraid that I do not provide this service right now.

How much time do you need to set up?

1 hour set up should be enough time.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Together, we can agree the songs you want to hear although I have a list of songs that I hope you will have seen on the website.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I would prefer if the venue has it’s own PA system but if absolutely necessary i can arrange to bring my own if needed.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I am always happy to learn a new song and there may be a chance I already know it but if I do not I charge an additional £30 to learn and rehearse the song.

I have listened to Mishel’s amazing voice on many occasions both here and in Bermuda. Her voice is warm and welcoming and lights up a room when she sings. You need to listen to her voice to fully appreciate her talent. She is diverse and can perform for any occasion be it a party, funeral or wedding.

Michelle Porter - She touched us with the perfect songs at an imperfect moment......., I had an expectation that Michelle's singing would be of a high standard, after all I had heard Michelle sing in public once before. So on this most sad occasion at my niece's funeral, there was only one person I could trust to set the tone just right. The quality of Michelle's delivery and level of professionalism was on point. She sang two songs on the programme. 'Gone to soon' and 'Smile'. She naturally moved us all to a well of emotions and rememberance for my much loved niece. So many family and friends commented on her wonderful singing. She brought serenity and grace to the service. I have no hesitation in recommending Michelle to sing on any occasion. If need be, Michelle will also help with ideas to choose just the right songs with appropriate words too!
