(April 24, 2020) She was a singer and songwriter who was appreciated by her peers and who quietly fashioned an enviable career both on stage and recordings. We are sad to report today the death of Nicole Mitchell.

The Michigan native began her musical journey with vocal training from Bertha McNeal of Motown’s Velvelettes. She took her developed talent to the stage, performing in such notable stageplays as Dreamgirls, Beehive and perhaps her most notable role, The Lion King.

Mitchell became a regular performing in clubs and theaters around Chicago over the last two decades.

Finally, after years onstage and supporting other artists, she began recording a series of albums in the new century, and audiences discovered her rich vocal qualities. She began to work with legendary producer Preston Glass, and also focused her efforts on suicide prevention efforts. In 2011, working with Glass, Nicole released her most noted album, The Bi-Polar Music Project...Vol 1: Licensed To Chill, which featured a popular duet with Phil Perry, "Forever United."

In this period of sadness, this is another sobering passing of a talented artist who has died too soon. Rest in peace, Ms. Mitchell.
