Michel'le Toussant first captured the world's attention in 1987 as a featured vocalist on World Class Wreckin' Cru's "Turn Off The Lights." Her childlike voice easily stole the show from WCWC's sleepy spoken-word flow, and she soon gained a record deal with Eazy-E's Ruthless Records. She would go on to release several albums, including the raunchy Hung Jury in 1998.
The shy and squeaky-voiced singer has been at the center of many controversies in her lifetime, including abusive relationships with rapper Dr. Dre and Suge Knight. She has fought back against the violence, and her resilience is an inspiration for anyone facing adversity.
Her relationship with Dre lasted over a decade and resulted in the birth of their son, Marcel. At one point, the pair were so intimate that they even lived together. Their tumultuous relationship eventually led to their breakup, but Michel'le continued to make music and was able to establish her own legacy in the hip hop scene.
In recent years, the singer has been focusing on her solo career. She has released a few singles, appeared on the reality show R&B Divas LA, and shared her story of survival in the Lifetime biopic Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le.
Fans have been worried about the singer's well-being, especially after a video was recently circulated of her wobbling on stage and struggling to finish her songs during a concert. However, the talented R&B star put her supporters' minds at ease by announcing that she was simply unwell and not high or drunk.
