Michelle O'Donnell was born with a paint brush in one hand and song sheet in the other. Whenever we must speak to Michelle, we are more than likely interrupting her humming a tune. Michelle enjoyed early guitar lessons and still enjoys picking up the instrument. Her enthusiasm for learning, whether it be the art form of drawing or singing, puts her in the constant state of improvement. Michelle started at an early age story boarding cartoons moving on to her love of singing, especially harmonies.
What some may not know is that Michelle has the rare gift of perfect relative pitch. This means if a sequence of notes is played to her, she can repeat them accurately every time. I call her "one take Michelle." She has also developed her voice over the years with hundreds of hours spent practicing harmonies and complicated arrangements from Celine Dion and the like.
Michelle is also responsible for reworking lyrics on Second Chances and Remembering as well as creating my album cover exposing her creative talents as an artist designer.
Today Michelle enjoys a full-time occupation at the American School for the Deaf working with deaf, blind, and autistic children, some of whom are afflicted with all three conditions. Her love and patience with special needs children is a gift and her calling.
