At only 21 years old, singer and songwriter Michelyn Cierra has already made some of her dreams come true. Currently a student at Bowie State University, Michelyn's passion for singing and songwriting is what fuels her to pursue her music career.

The Washington D.C. native grew up in a musical family, as her father works in music production and is a bass player, and she discovered music at the early age of 5. Music became Michelyn's medium of self expression and she hasn't looked back since.

Michelyn has already performed at World Cafe Live and The Voltage Lounge, both located in Philadelphia, as well as the legendary Howard Theatre in D.C. and she didn't disappoint. Michelyn gives her all when she performs and makes sure that the crowd is feeling her music as she pours her heart out.

The pint sized diva craved her fans' sweet tooth when she released her first single entitled "Red Velvet" from her upcoming project Dust. The track is complete with with horns, strings, percussion, and piano elements that'll have you grooving with that special someone.


Michelyn is definitely an artist to keep an eye on. I've seen her perform live, and I was absolutely blown away. She's very talented, incredibly optimistic and unshakably determined to make the rest of her dreams come true.
