Emeline Michel - Djannie - Music video made for victim of Domestic Violence.
Emeline Michel (born in 1967) is a versatile vocalist, a captivating performer and one of the premier Haitian songwriters of her generation. She is the reigning queen of Haitian songs, but the title 'queen' rather embarrasses her more than feeling special. She was introduced to music by singing gospel music in church in her neighborhood in Gonaïves. Michel belongs to a new generation of Haitian musicians that combines traditional rhythms with social, political and inspirational content. After completing her education, she moved to the U.S to perfect her musical education at the Detroit Jazz Center, where she worked alongside Aretha Franklin and Anita Baker. Then she decided to make a career in song and came back to Haiti. Her first album "Douvanjou ka leave" (May the Sun Rise) was recorded in 1987. Following the September 1991 coup, she moved to Paris and Montreal to build her career as an artiste. With a released album "Tout Mon Temps", she got concerts in France, Belgium, Canada, Africa, Japan and the United States. Then she returned to Haiti and founded her production company to produce music that best suits her version. Her name is always synonymous to the country's fight for survival.
