Now blazing? "NOT OVER U" in celebration of love, America's soldiers returning home and all in the spirit of Black History Month. What you may love about LaDeana Michelle is the fact that she's a leader and is NOT CONCERNED in following trends. What you don't see in public is very much alive in private. She is who she is, with a limitless mind. We're not just saying that, either. She was tested as highly-gifted, with speed-reading capabilities, a photographic memory and a laundry list of other, exceptional gifts. Did anyone even KNOW she taught herself to play 9 different instruments? The surprises to come are FAR from over. Meanwhile....
LaDeana Michelle is all about love...and she ain't tryin' to change that!

LaDeana Michelle mirrors predecessors R. Kelly and Prince as the sole writer, producer, arranger, composer and performer of her forthcoming 2012 debut album. Shes been consistently yielding those timeless jams, so we trust that the album will be sizzling. Its a digital world now, baby. Shes got that on lockdown.
From everything we have heard---song after song---of LaDeana Michelles phenomenal voice, style and influential messages within her music and lyrics, whenever she rears her lovely head above water for good (and make no mistake about it--she's coming on HER OWN TERMS) there wont be a soul alive who will be able to resist her. - Trace In-Stereo Evans
