If you missed today’s episode of  NewsOne Nowwith Roland Martin, you missed an exclusive interview with Chrisette Michele!

The last nine months have been extremely tough for R&B/Soul star. Fans have continued to spew their disappointment, frustration and disdain on social media after her decision to accept an invitation to perform at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration in January.
In what seems like a wound that will never heal, Chrisette has endured intense backlash from the community that once loved and supported both her music and artistry. After being dropped from her record label, Capitol Records, three weeks ago, she took to social media to sound off about the pain and hurt she has experienced throughout the year.

Martin engaged in a real-time conversation with Chrisette on Twitter as her vent was unfolding and invited her to share it all on his show. Today, she joined Roland in-studio and did just that. As the first interview she’s done since her inauguration performance, Chrisette has a lot to say about her current situation, the gut-wrenching personal loss she endured and her next move!

Lalah Hathaway Rolling Out

The Hathaways, Gays, O’Jays, Jacksons, DeBarges, Ross/Gordy are the most important families in our music history. Their legacies influence and impact, generation after generation. One member of the aforementioned dynasties continues to wow us. Her government name is Eulaulah Donyll Hathaway, with her forename meaning the highest praise when spelled backwards. And to us, this legend is affectionately known as “Lalah.” She’s collaborated with eminent talents like Pharrell Williams on the Hidden Figuressoundtrack, and Kendrick Lamar, to name a couple. Her performance history, meanwhile, has seen invitations to the stage from epic artists including Prince; Stevie Wonder; Herbie Hancock and Anita Baker. With her new album honestly now available online and in-stores, there are no limits.

Hathaway has shaped a career so impressive; having an autographed CD of hers is enviable. It’s a collector’s item, real memorabilia that won’t escape your history box; a selfie as currency isn’t enough. It’s industry veterans like Hathaway who detest social media during live shows for many reasons.

“When it comes to social media, Hathaway’s wish is for fans to enjoy the moment, the live experience. She shares, “When I am trying to connect with people in the crowd and I’m seeing iPads instead of faces, it’s this reminder that people don’t feel like it’s real unless it’s in their phones now. I really hate it for them that they pay for a ticket and basically come to look at YouTube. They are missing the real life experience!”

A five-time Grammy Award winner, including wins as Artist and Producer for 2017’s Best R&B Album Lalah Hathaway Live, Hathaway recently completed a six-week run with the “Strength of a Woman” tour opening for Mary J. Blige and as she sits in our studio at rolling out headquarters in Atlanta’s West Midtown section, she opens up about her yearning to sleep in her own bed, cook a meal and play with her 11-year-old Bichon Frise, Boston, while she catches up on her favorite shows that she’s TiVo’d – especially HBO’s “Insecure.”

Her newest offering, honestly is an invitation to go on a “journey that is intimate, disruptive and, time-appropriately, honest.”

This is true poetry! You can catch the rest of Lalah’s amazing interview by clicking here. Happy reading!
