Looks like K. Michelle is really turning over a new leaf. Toning down her feisty approach and trading in the fiery red hair we’re used to, K. Michelle was shown in a more positive light, being presented with the Mayor’s “Ambassador Award” by Mayor AC Wharton at the Memphis City Hall on Aug. 16.
“It gives me so much pleasure today to honor one of our own. I proudly give her the Ambassador Award…I say ambassador because this is someone who was raised up here, so she found out what this great city was about,” said Wharton. “She is the Memphis story. Not only is she keeping that story to herself, everywhere she goes she tells the Memphis story; personifies the Memphis story.”
The ‘V.S.O.P.’ singer clad in a simple little black dress expressed how moved she was by the recognition from her hometown.
“This is an honor. I absolutely love my city,” K. shared. “I want to thank everyone. It’s been a struggle and a fight, but I’m just getting started in this business. You have to fight if you want to be a musician. If this is what you want to do, you can never give up on it.”
K. Michelle’s debut album, Rebellious Soul is flying off shelves nationwide and she is set to debut her very own reality show titled, “No New Friends,” on VH1.—Kandice Lawson
