American Idol contestant Michelle Sussett performs at Ball & Chain

Not too often are we able to sit down with a finalist from American Idol on a regular Saturday night. This past weekend CREATIV was invited by the Tag Experience to attend a show by young new artist Michelle Sussett at the historic Ball & Chain. Michelle made it to the Top 10 of American Idol this year which was a huge accomplishment adding to her journey. She stole many of our hearts with her beautiful voice and quirky personality while performing weekly on American Idol. Watching her she’s has everything that it takes to be the next star coming out of Miami’s music scene. I was able to catch up with Michelle before her first performance after leaving American Idol to talk music, experiences and her life after AI.
