I know Miss Michael for 15 years. I watch her develop as a mezzo-soprano. She was then a real pro and a very hard working artist, always looking for perfection. I followed her career as a mezzo-soprano and was one , of possible several people that accepted her change to soprano and my adviced was based not only for her facility for high notes, but also for her ability to stay in the soprano tessitura. Miss Michael not only has a great voice, but is very musical, excellent actress and most important of all, a great, honest, sincere and generous person.
