R&B artist Michel'le to headline Urban Pride San Diego benefit

SAN DIEGO -- R&B singer-songwriter Michel'le will perform a special set at Numbers Nightclub on Sunday, Sept. 2, as part of a Labor Day weekend celebration benefiting Urban Pride San Diego.

Michel'le is most known for her 1990s hits, including "No More Lies," "Nicety," "Before You Turn Off The Lights" and "Something In My Heart." According to her bio, she has a squeaky, child-like speaking voice, which is a startling contrast to her strong vocals.

The performer is currently touring cities across the country and earlier this year, debuted her acting skills as one of the stars in Derrell Lawrence’s hit stage play “Do You Trust Your Best Friend?” along side Angela Winbush.

The event at Numbers will include dancing, drinks and music by DJ Von Kiss, along with the opportunity to meet representatives of Urban Pride San Diego and support the organization.

Urban Pride San Diego is a social service and community-based organization committed to promoting positive self-images of the LGBT Urban (African American, Latino/a, Native American, and Asian Pacific Islander) communities of San Diego through education and enrichment activities.

“We’re excited to have Michel’le come to town for a special performance to help Urban Pride continue its important work of celebrating San Diego’s unique and culturally diverse LGBT community,” said Charles W. Patmon Jr., executive director of Urban Pride San Diego. “We are committed to empowering LGBT urban individuals and families, as well as the LGBT community at large and this fun event is going to be one everyone will want to attend!”

Tickets to the event, which is being produced by Global Male, are $10 in advance, and $15 at the door. A limited number of VIP tickets are on sale for $25.

Numbers is located at 3811 Park Blvd. in Hillcrest.
