A young man of undeniable talent and charm, Michael Robinson has his eyes set on becoming one of the greatest vocalists that the Caribbean has ever produced. Born into a family of musicians, Michael developed a love for music and effortlessly found his voice in more ways than one. At an early age he discovered his passion and talent to match and so began his journey to stardom.
Michael started performing as a backup singer at his family church, Streams of Power Ministries on Waterworks Road, Castries, St. Lucia. His spiritual background and strong family ties have molded him into a gentleman beaming with humility and gratitude which keep him grounded along his journey.
In 2007 he was pushed out of his comfort zone to open for gospel sensation Mary Mary at GosFest. The voice was now in great demand and he soon began serenading at pageants, performing at weddings and competing at Youth Fest where he emerged victorious. Michael’s career began taking shape in 2011 when he started working with notable St. Lucian producers to professionally record his music. The result was Michael receiving his due recognition for his star quality crooning. Local radio stations included his music on their playlists with each song landing a spot in the top 3 amongst locally produced music on countdowns.
Michael continued to expand his repertoire, producing more original music. He spent the second half of 2013 creating and releasing four hit songs; ‘Caribbean Way’, ‘Who Feels It Knows It’- tribute to slain friend, Chereece Benoit, ‘Island Love’ featuring St. Lucian beauty and songstress, Aiasha, and a cover of ‘The Christmas Song’. The genres range from pop to R&B and each nabbed the number one spot on local charts.
In 2014, Michael continued to satisfy his fans with a cover of John Legend’s ‘All of Me’, the release of ‘Frenzy’ which was number one on local charts, and his first groovy dance-hall hit ‘Make You Mine.’ Also in 2014, one year after performing backup on the main stage, Michael performed at various Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival events as a lead vocalist, with his very own main stage Jazz performance, backed up by two musical icons, Ronald ‘Boo’ Hinkson and Barbara Cadet. November of that same year, he was fortunate to share the stage and perform with Jamaican sensation, Tanya Stephens at OMG Fest and had the pleasure of serenading the Queen of Bacchanal, Destra Garcia for her birthday. Up to this day, Michael has collaborated with fellow St. Lucian entertainers, and has proven he is not afraid to experiment with musical genres as he was crowed favorite and got a tremendous reception every time he took the stage with soca artist and DJ Sirlancealot for performances of their popular 2015 Groovy track “Hooray” during St. Lucia Carnival. The people desired more from Michael, so he opened up 2016 with his 3 rd release off his up-coming album called “Living life” which has created a resounding buzz throughout the island & region. In April, Michael featured Grenadian artist “Mr.Killa” on his 4th release off his project. Of course, with the Saint Lucia Festival around the corner, Michael Robinson was in high demand. In May of 2016, Michael was ready to set the stage at the Opening of Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival headlined by dancehall artist from Jamaica, Mavado . He was also awarded his time to shine and spread his feel good music at Pigeon Island Landmark, where he performed before the last act of the evening, Kassav. When you thought performing at two of the biggest stages at the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival was enough, the sensational singer took his amazing energy to Fire Grill Jazz, Tapas On The Bay & Tea Time Jazz .
We can expect so much more from this rising star in years to come. He has been featured in local and regional media and performed regionally at the Barbados ‘Cooler Jazz’ launch. The word has surely gotten out about Michael Robinson and this is only the beginning. Michael continues tirelessly to put in the work and is currently working on a music video for his unreleased single off his upcoming Album called “SHADES” This project which feature local, regional and international artistes, to be released soon
Michael is intent on making music that inspires others and makes them feel good. If you asked him he would tell you he is human being first; one who feels what others feel and can identify with their moments of joy, sorrow, heartbreak and triumph. He believes in his dreams and that of others, as is reflected in his work with a local charity named Our Future.
With a voice that soothes and music that grooves, Michael Robinson is certainly the artiste to watch. MR. Music has arrived…
