ABOUT MICHAELA

Michaela - CrazyDubbed by Radio Presenter Dave P (Choice FM) as ‘compelling and inspirational, truly amazing’, Michaela The Poet began writing performance-poetry in her chicken-shed bedroom on the 22nd May 2006, since then, the words she frequently places on common ground to fashion the comical, cheeky, spiritual and matter-of fact poetry she recites has rippled over the UK’s every impulse.
Never failing to hold an audience captive, Michaela has featured in some of the UK’s most premiered venues including Hackney Empire, The Roundhouse, Theatre Royal, Carling Academy, Stratford Circus, Hammersmith Theatre, Bloomsbury Theatre, Trafalgar Square’s open stage to a crowd of 6,000 performing material from her first EP release, ‘MAY the 22ND’ released in October 2007. Her EP continued to gain her notoriety and took her to some of London’s most famous poetry nights including The Sunday Show, ADLIB, and Soulcial. She has also featured on TV Stations BEN, Passion TV, LOVEWORLD TV, OHTV, REVELATION TV, OBE and radio stations Choice FM, Colourful, Déjà Vu and Premier Radio as well as over 30 Universities all over the UK.

‘Singing ‘n’ Poetizing’ with the boldness of a preying lion, Michaela is also a battle-Poet and has gained four 1st Prize Competitions at Theatre Royal Stratford East’s ‘Word Up Slam’ all before spending a month touring across New York and Orlando in March and April 2008. As a strong believer of Christian theology Michaela has also recited her sometimes hard-hitting words of reality at churches such as ‘Ruach Ministries’, ‘New Wine’, ‘Epainos’, ‘Emmanuel Christian Centre’ and many more!

Michaela’s newly released debut album; FIXING BARBIE is an eclectic mix of raw live poetry, with funk, electro-pop, comedy, soul and jazz, and is currently No.1 on the Colourful Radio Newcomers Chart.

2009 has been a great success for Michaela; selling out Stratford Circus with an amazing album launch, winning Best Female at this year’s Gospel Music Awards and being accepted to the renowned Guildhall School of Music & Drama School to study Acting. However 2010 is also set to be ground-breaking; after selling out her first show of the year; ‘Fixing Barbie Live’, International shores are calling again with a tour of South Africa confirmed for Summer 2010!!

DRAMA SCHOOL DIARIES

I’ll keep it short; I’m a Poet, and actor in Training at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I’m happy to be here, it’s just that being here doesn’t always make me happy. It’s not supposed to.  However to be fair, sometimes it makes me itch with excitement. Enjoy these, be encouraged, laugh, gasp in horror, and cry at your own will. These Diaries would not be available if it wasn’t for The Leverhulme Trust for sponsoring my tuition fees. The lady I speak to also writes poetry! Isn’t that great?!
