Who is Michelle Anseeuw?
For many years prior to my involvement with karaoke I was involved in live music. I spent years bouncing around the industry as a performer and Producer of Country Music Shows. I earned a certain degree of respect for my ability to recognize talent and for bringing it to the public as many of my “finds” went on to successful careers in the music Industry.
I had started selling Karaoke music and was developing a respectable clientele when circumstance brought Michelle to my doorstep. We quickly found our way to the basement, where our karaoke system was set up and for the first time I was treated to the sound of Michelle’s voice in song. It became an instant love affair. For the first time since her untimely death, I heard the distinct sounds of Patsy Cline and Michelle’s delivery was so natural and pure it was hard to believe I wasn’t listening to the original.
At this time, Michelle did not have the confidence required to play center stage, the talent was obvious but there were a few rough edges. Singing came natural and her love for the works of Patsy Cline was evident in the songs she selected to sing. Michelle doesn’t describe herself as an imitator of Patsy Cline but rather as a singer who sings her songs in tribute to the greatness of that formidable entertainer.
I hope my influence and direction had some input to her developing confidence and shedding the image of a stay at home Wife and Mother. The transition was extremely fast and it proved further; the talent had always been there, it just remained to bring it out. Michelle has gone on to produce her own recordings and appear live in tribute shows around the Country. She is in great demand and if the opportunity ever presents itself I recommend you take in a show. She is presently putting together a tour which should take her across Canada and hopefully into the USA. She has a CD for sale and on it she has recorded “Amazing Grace” totally without accompaniment. It is a prized possession in our home and workplace where it gets lots of play whenever the need is felt for a little spiritual uplift. No we do not have the CD for sale but if you go to Michelle’s website at theinclines.ca I think you may be able to find it.
We take great pleasure on putting these short clips of Michelle’s performances on our website and hope Patsy Cline fans around the world will get as much enjoyment from them as we do. Truly a ray of sunshine wherever she appears and we will post her itinerary on our website for you to follow in the event you wish to take in a show, You won’t be disappointed. We would also appreciate hearing from any who have seen Michelle perform. To Michelle we say, Good Luck and God Bless you, in our humble opinion; you stand for everything good in our Industry, May success dog your footsteps all the way to the top!
