Chrisette Michele Opens Up About Miscarriage, Suicide, and Finding Her Center Again

Songstress Chrisette Michele is in the process of releasing a new album and to kickstart it all, she released a single titled “Strong Black Woman.” But in the midst of her new project, Michele also opened up about some struggles she’s faced that have tested her strength.

⠀⠀
On Friday the singer took to social media to announce that she was dropped from her label, Caroline/Capitol Records.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀
“I complete an entire album and my label decides to walk away from me. Capitol records. I was quiet for a few days… I go into the studio and literally poured out my heart and soul and the label decides to walk away from me?” she said.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀
She also mentioned how the backlash for performing at Trump’s Inaugural Ball, caused a drastic shift in her image. “I went from someone being revered and loved to facing putting out an album in the worst climate of my musical career.”

⠀⠀
“I know God. He was kind enough to soften the blow. I promise you, I felt Him cover me like a blanket,” she said. “I told Him I was out of control. I told Him I was having thoughts about leaving and not finishing all He’s called me to. He listened.”

⠀⠀
She also revealed that she had had a miscarriage.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀
“Something came out of me. It was my child. The one my love and I worked so hard on,” she said. “I never knew I could allow myself to be so broken that my physical body would break down. “Just because I had a negative experience didn’t mean I had to become negative and broken. When I lost my child I knew that it was time for me to become a #StrongBlackWoman.”

⠀⠀
Through learning to love herself and practicing yoga, the songstress was able to find her center again. “With every asana and meditation I found my new focus. It was love,” she said. “It was understanding. It was Peace. I could be the catalyst for peace because I now have a deep understanding for what the exact opposite of peace looks like.”
