Over the weekend I was lucky enough to be in the presence of a great voice and all around great spirit in the form of singer Alii Michele. She came through this Saturday on her way to a great event in Jackson, Mississippi.

I have to admit I didn't know what to expect when meeting her. When I initially heard the single "Never" , I was blown away by her vocals and jazzy style singing. It's funny during the interview, she spoke about the song being an uptempo song. I have to say that this is a smooth groove that exudes sexiness from the first time hearing it. We talked about her new album "Away" that is available online and all streaming services and a little about her career.

I think that it is safe to say that she will be around for a while and if you have not heard the single yet. All you have to do is keep it locked to your favorite radio station and it will become your favorite new jam. She is also doing plenty of shows now and Saturday night she made an appearance in Jackson for the Capricorn Aquarius Birthday Bash featuring plenty of great talent like Shaliek, George Tandy Jr, Terisa Griffin and of course Alii Michele and so many others.

Peep out some of the great shots from the event and also from her visit here at the station. Also check out the interview this afternoon in the 6 pm hour as we'll get the chance to introduce Alii to Lake Charles.
