Every now and then a special artist emerges – young, brimming with talent and complete with a strong vision of their future. Mikhale Jones is one such artist.
Neo-Soul, Trap and Pop singer, dancer and fully-packaged star in the making, she knew from an extremely young age that she was destined to be a performer. Now, at 25 years old, she has been more than noticed by the industry and public alike.
Currently wrapping up the recording process on her first signed album, It Is What It Is, Mikhale holds nothing back in her raw and honest delivery of the stories that make up her life. The first single My Soul is a goose-bump-inspiring, slow-tempo teaser that shows Mikhale’s range off perfectly, just doing what she does best.
The song speaks from a deep part of her personal journey with growing into herself as an artist. “Just settling into my twenties and having completed varsity, I was ready to discover my purpose and who I was as an individual. It was scary as f%@k! I was scared of the unknown, because all I knew is that I no longer knew who I was. I became numb as a coping mechanism because the world just didn’t feel like a safe space to be in. I felt like I was losing my soul”, she states.
Putting down final tweaks in studio with her production team, The Cousins, as well as having shot a stunning video for My Soul, Mikhale is being backed by her record company
Afroforce1 Records, a division of Universal Music Group, alongside her new peers, Mi Casa.
A priority artist for the Universal Music Group urban catalogue, Afroforce1 will be releasing and marketing the single not only in South Africa, but in continental Africa as well as Europe.
With her phenomenal voice, natural beauty, flawless work ethic and commitment to being real, Mikhale is destined to make it as one of SA’s brightest new stars.
