Mycah Chevalier

Mycah Chevalier is the new sultry and soulful vocalist who stirs a hypnotic blend of jazz, soul, and blues, spiced with hints of her Creole roots from her upbringing in her music. Born in the Nation’s Capital, she embarked upon her professional music and performing arts journey at age 5. During her childhood years, she also performed in a host of musical productions through Howard University Children’s Theater, The LaVerne Reed Dancers, Kennedy Center’s Children's Theater and Washington Choral Arts Society.

Realizing how drawn she was to the music of such greats as Phyllis Hyman and Sarah Vaughn, Mycah Chevalier decided to hone her vocal studies under the tutelage of Mr. Ricky Payton Sr., Founder and Director of BET’s Urban Nation HIP-HOP Choir and HBO’s City at Peace. Always striving to be the best at which she put her mind, the young prodigy graduated early from high school, majored in Music and Communications during her Howard University years, and earned music and academic scholarships from Mt. Vernon College, where she furthered her vocal studies under the tutelage of Washington Opera’s mezzo-sopranos Linda Allison.

Mycah Chevalier credits

Blessed with an irresistible and soulful voice, Mycah Chevalier's music is in a class of her own. She has shared the stage with several legends and notable artists such as The Whispers, Patti Labelle, Luther Vandross, and Arturo Sandoval. Working with Vandross was an amazing experience, “He was every bit of the artist that he portrayed…he made me feel every note and he reinforced my desire to do the same for my listeners.”

Mycah Chevalier's tremendous vocal and performing talents led to her casting by the playwright and choreographer Debbie Allen in the theatric production of Soul Possessed, starring world renowned recording artists, Patti Labelle, and trumpet player, Arturo Sandoval. As she graciously reminisces, “I was so honored when Ms. Labelle took my hand to tell me I have a beautiful gift, and confirmed that I should never let anyone stop me from my dream. Her comments led me to seize an opportunity to sing across the world.” At the end of a 4-year US touring stint, this artist spent 3 months in Ethiopia and Sweden, where she was the opening act for recording artist Ja Rule during the Ethiopian New Year Celebration.

In addition, her studies in music, led her to create musical and vocal arrangements along side partners “The Schoobies”. You may hear their handiwork on Mycah Chevalier debut project, as well as a host of other independent artists from gospel to alternative rock!
