Michelle Bonilla

New York, NY-- After a four-year hiatus multifaceted singer/songwriter Michelle Bonilla readies to release her sophomore studio effort entitled In Spite of Me, April 13th on RockSoul Productions. She’s back with her producer Lee Jerkins (Out of Eden, Cross Movement) with an inspirational 16-track CD--13 full songs and three diary excerpts--with strong infusions of R&B, pop and Latin melodies featuring Jamaican gospel recording artist Chevelle Franklin, and gospel hip-hop artists Lecrae, Flame, and R-Swift. "My music is a blend of who I am culturally—urban, Latin, rock and soul," says Bonilla. The first single, I Love You, is a fun anthem-like song. According to Bonilla, "It’s a new way to praise without the traditional flare." It’s also the cry of her heart when it comes to how she feels about God. You is a personal favorite of Michelle's. "It says everything I feel when I just can’t seem to get it together. When my world is going crazy I don’t need nobody else I need You. No stranger to the industry Bonilla has performed in the company of artists as Crystal Lewis, Nicole Mullen, Out Of Eden, and Papa San, and has been featured on Cross Movement’s Grammy and Dove nominated album “Higher Definition.” Four years later, with a newfound understanding of who she is in Christ, Michelle Bonilla presents her sophomore album, In Spite of Me, an attempt to illustrate that being a Christian is a process of growth and a journey of becoming more Christ-like. With refreshing, strong, and stirring vocals, she shares her faith in a fun and unobtrusive way. She talks about her real life struggles and how she has been able to overcome them with Christ.
