Following years of well-documented drama within the music industry, R&B singer and FAMU alumna K. Michelle emerges more anticipated than ever with her debut album, Rebellious Soul, released via Atlantic Records on August 13.  The singer was initially signed to RCA Records in the mid-2000s, though an album never materialized.  Despite the setbacks, she busied herself recording and releasing four mixtapes, as well as collaborating with artists such as Missy Elliott, Bobby V, Trina, Gucci Mane, and her mentor, R&B legend R. Kelly.

K. Michelle became a household name in 2012 as one of the cast members on the hit VH1 reality series, “Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta.”  She quickly became known to fans and viewers for her no-holds-barred antics, commentary, and her numerous run-ins with fellow castmates.  Although the 2013 season is her last on “LHHATL,” fans can expect to see her on the upcoming season of “Love & Hip-Hop: New York.”  Additionally, she is reportedly in talks with VH1 and the “LHH” franchise executive producer, Mona Scott-Young, regarding her own series.

Born Kimberly Michelle Pate, the Memphis, TN native attended Florida A&M University on a yodeling scholarship.  As a student, she was very active on the FAMU campus, becoming her class’s freshman attendant, being crowned Miss FAMU, and joining the Beta Alpha chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Rebellious Soul is now in stores and available for download on iTunes.
