Prior to making her debut as a solo artist, Michaels became one of pop music’s most in-demand songwriters. The cumulative worldwide stream tally for songs she has co-written is 20 billion to date, with 21 titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including “Issues.” DaniLeigh, the emerging R&B singer and songwriter who appeared on Pandora’s Predictions Chart, has landed on two of Pandora’s biggest stations, Todays’ R&B and Hip Hop Hits as well as Today’s Hip Hop and Pop Hits with her current single “Lil Bebe”. A regular on the NYC DJ circuit with his energetic club remixes being requested by some of the most well-known celebrities, DJ Big Ben rounds out the entertainment for the evening.
