K. Michelle, real name, Kimberly Michelle Pate,Â grew up in Memphis, Tennessee and started singing and playing the piano at a young age, she tells KONTROL:
â€œI always used to walk around the house singing when I was a little girl, and they used to tell me to shut up! (laughs).â€
â€œThey always knew I was gonna do something with muÂsic,â€
â€œI just decided it was what was what I was supposed to do,â€ says K. Michelle. â€œEvery time I tried to walk away from it, it didnâ€™t happen.â€
K. Michelle signed to Jive Record and wasÂ unfortunately wasÂ engaged in a domesticÂ violenceÂ dispute which resulted in being let go from Jive. K joined the cast of LHHA and was a hit on the first season. She continued working on her music and a new EP will be released soon.
â€œThereâ€™s a lot of things you can overcome and a lot of different things you will go through in the business, but thereâ€™s nothing more important than the music.â€Â
K explains that she is no different as an artists or reality star, â€œIâ€™m the same way on TV as I am in my music.â€
