To quote GO! Magazine (where Lori appeared as a covergirl for their August 2008 Music Issue, and as one of "100 Women We Love" 2009), "Every once in a while an enigmatic, stereotype-breaking artist like Lori Michaels comes along to level the playing field and change the rules of the game." She is a powerful singer/songwriter, a musician of the first order, and the star and a choreographer of her Me & The Girls song and dance act. The fans of the NFL, NHL, NBA, and WNBA franchises know Michaels for her chilling rendition of the National Anthem, as well as producing, directing, and wowing crowds in her pre-game and half-time performances. Countless couples know Michaels for “Unconditionally,” her love song sung at many a gay (and straight) wedding. Since her Coming Out in March of 2006, Michaels has taken Me & The Girls from coast to coast to the biggest pride festivals, club shows, music festivals, appearances, benefits, etc. all over the country.
She has been non-stop with her LIVE OUT LOUD PRIDE TOUR (which kicked off at Dinah Shore Weekend in April 2008). While on tour, Lori Michaels has graced the cover of GLBT magazines from NY to LA - including: GO! (cover & 2 features), SHE (2 features), Curve (mentions, features & Entertainer of the Year) IN LA (cover & feature), San Francisco Bay Times (feature), GirL (cover & several features) and more. She has also been interviewed and had her songs played on Clear Channel radio stations, satellite and internet radio such as: Sirius OUT Q, Z-100- NY’s 1 Hit Music Station, WEOW 92.7, 99.5 The Sun, Energy 92.7, G.I.R.L. Radio, AOL Radio, Voice of America, and more.
Vlog interviews have included Afterellen.com’s All Access Pass & GirlRock. SheWired.com’s “What’s Your Problem?” features a 3 part series on Lori (& the girls) with a theme song written and performed by Lori Michaels. Her dance single, "Wild Ride" is featured in the new film, "And Then Came Lola" and her song, "Meet Me At The Partay" has an exclusive dance remix feature in the new film, "Ptown Diaries". This song grabbed the attention of the film's director, and the official music video will be available soon.
With various television networks (LOGO, TLC, Style, CW11, here! Networks and more) showing footage of Lori, we can see why everybody wants more than music from Lori Michaels! Michaels grew up in the small town of Fairview, New Jersey. Her professional training began in her youth at Broadway Dance Center in New York City. She later graduated from New York University with a pre-law degree. She is the founder and president of the non-profit organization, Reach Out, Inc.
and is an honorary board member of the Joey Dipaolo AIDS Foundation. For more information go to: www.lorimichaelsproductions.com. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
