My name is Dana and I'm 20 years old. I found out about Michelle through my girlfriend forcing me to watch The Voice. I found out about this forum because I created it My favorite Michelle song changes daily, but right now it's "How Do We Tell Them". And three things about me.... Um.... I've been vegetarian my whole life (My parents are, and raised me that way, and I stuck with it), I'm going to college majoring in video production, and I have 3 cats. On my way to becoming a crazy cat lady!
My name is Kyleigh and I'm 17 years old (my birthday's in just under two months!). I've been watching The Voice for the past couple of years because I really liked the concept of it being about "the voice," but while I really love the blind auditions, I never really connected with a particular singer. I'd watch the blinds and then I'd typically stop watching once the show moved on. But this year, this introverted, glasses-wearing, lovable dork came out and killed a Katy Perry song and I just knew there was something special about her. (Plus she was super cute.) So I kept watching, and here we are!
I found out about this forum from FYMC and tunebomb, the lovely creators, who told me the seeeeeeecret so I could join! My favorite song right now is "Growing Away From You (The Leaf Song)" because it's just beautiful and tells an amazing story, which is one of the main ways I can connect with a song.
Three things about me... um, I've been a vegetarian for about 3 and a half years and I'm planning to transition to vegan soon. I'm starting college in about 6 weeks where I'll be studying global studies in hopes of going on to law school and becoming a human rights lawyer! Lastly, I'm moving from a town with a population of about 5,000 people to New York City for college and I'm SO EXCITED!
Greetings, Frans! My name is Ashley but you probably know me as tunebomb, AKA the worst URL for a fandom blog ever, and the one with the rambling but hilarious tags. The Voice is one of my guilty pleasure shows which, until this season, didn't actually provide me with much pleasure, so I'm not really sure why I continued to watch it. I'm glad I did, though. I was a fan of Michelle's from the first moments of her blind audition. Actually, as a nerdy introvert who also still dresses like it's 2004, I was a fan fran of her as a person from the start of her introduction package. It was really just a bonus that she ended up being a ridiculously awesome vocalist and performer. When looking up Ella Riot after her audition, I realized that I had actually heard of them back when they were My Dear Disco, but I'd completely forgotten about them in the interim. Clearly, I was young and stupid then.
I found out about this forum from the lovely FYMC (real names are for the weak) when she recruited me to assist in the design because apparently I don't suck at that sort of thing. I don't even know if it's possible to pick a favorite song of Michelle's, though I've been really into Follow Me, It Will Rain ever since Michelle posted it on her tumblr. It's one of several songs (including Let Her Go and Tear Down Walls) that I connect with on a very visceral level.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Arts & Animation from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and am currently working on a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing for Entertainment. Why two Bachelors instead of a Masters you ask? Well, because they're both only three year schools, and because I want to be able to be involved in multiple facets of the creative process, that's why. I also have a reallyweird life in fandoms, having been contacted in some way, shape, or form by someone personally connected to every one I've been in. I don't know how or why, since I don't reach out to them. It just sort of happens and it's really weird.

Hey guys! My names Kaitlyn, I'm 16 years old almost 17. I'll get to graduate high school in a year with my associates degree since I am working on all college classes right now. I first saw Michelle on The Voice where I fell in love with her talent and personality. I found this forum on Twitter! My favorite song sung by Michelle would have to be 'Clarity' but it is really hard to choose because all of them are great. Three things about me.... well I'm from New York and recently just moved to Texas, I've been a cheerleader for 10 years, and I hope to one day come out with a album of my own! I'm on twitter under the account name TEAMCHAMMIES.

My name is Bridgette. I'm 19 years old. When I first saw Michelle's introduction on The Voice, I was hooked. I was in love with her personality. Then she sang! That's when I knew she'd be the one I supported through out the whole competition. I don't normally listen to pop music, but something about her made me love it, and I couldn't stop listening to her songs from The Voice as well as her original songs from Ella Riot and The Reverb Junkie.
A few personal things about me are that I go to the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina where I study physics and astrophysics, and I'm pretty band obsessed. Besides the MC frandom the only other major fandom I'm a part of is the band fandom; it's great as well.
Hi, I'm Tzie (pronounced as Chii..). I'm 24 years old. I wish you will all accept me. Haha.
I've found out about Michelle in The Voice. I find her interesting during her blinds audition. I continued watching The Voice because she's really interesting but she got my heart when she performed Call Your Girlfriend.
My favorite song of hers are Tear Down Your Walls, Ssh I Want You More, Part of You, It's Just The Way I Feel, All I Do, Love War, Until Then, U and I... maybe I should stop now because i think I'll list everything here.
I found out about the forum from FYMC because I religiously follow Dana's account even if she doesn't know me. Heehee.
Three things about me? I'm from the Philippines. I'm really into photography but I've never been THAT good so I stopped but for some reasons, Michelle made me feel like i have to continue learning it. I am now working as a Systems Admin in Cambridge University Press. I finished Computer Engineering so if you have computer-related concerns, hit me up.
Oh and my twitter is pritsijois. We have a PH fan account, @chammiesph. My tumblr is fritziejoyce.tumblr.com.
I really love this frandom. Sigh.

Hello you beautiful people! I'm Robin, I'm 25, and I heard about the forum from the lovely FYMC [Dana] who posted about it on tumblr! I found out about Michelle because I'm a diehard Voice junkie and never miss an episode. It's so funny because I remember watching her audition with my sister and saying, "She's different...I don't know, I think I really like her actually." And then she opened her mouth to sing and my sister and I just looked at each other and nodded and I was hooked. It wasn't just her voice but the creativity of the arrangement that I loved. :] On top of that she was such an adorable person that how could you not love her? My favorite MC song, oh goodness. I really, really, really love Here's To You because it just breaks my heart and it's so gorgeous, but I also really love When because it's something that I can really relate to right now.
Three things about me? I have a degree in United States Industrial History and am a professional writer in Nashville, which, sorry to anyone who disagrees, is the most amazing city in the world. I am so deeply in love with this place. I'm also the most talkative person you'll ever meet and absolutely adore people, so I'm so excited to hang out with you guys a bit!
Hey awesome people. I am Nick. 19 years old. I was doing my usual Youtube haven hunt when I stumbled upon Michelle's the Voice audition. I liked her. Loved actually. She's just so - herself. And her voice's gold. From then on, I became my stalker self and searched for more Michelle music. I found out about Ella Riot, Reverb Junkie, etc. etc. etc. More music, more fun. She had this statement about being alone and how it's not that lonely. It was so inspiring. I found about this forum through FYMC - Thanks! My favorite as of the moment would be Ssh, I want you more. I listen to it while walking with my earphones in full blast and when I don't give a shit about how others see me. Three things about me, hmm. Well, I am from the Philippines, I write - rather clumsily, and I want to be friends with you awesome people.

Hiiiee Frans! My name is Elizabeth and I'm 20 years old. You all might know me as @bigtiimeidolfan or @rusher1993 on Twitter. I've been a fan of American Idol ever since day one but, this past season was really scripted and manipulated. I pretty much gave up on it and started watching The Voice. I was only into the blind auditions and after that, I would tune out but, this season was different when I saw this very adorable nerdy girl singing "I Kissed A Girl". From then on, I knew what show I would stick with and I'm SO glad I did. She provided me with some superb performances that I will watch for the rest of my life. I heard about this forum through Twitter and knew that I had to join cause I freaking love the Chammies to death and would love to get to know as many of them as possible. My favorite Michelle song would have to be "All I Think Of Is Love" because that song just makes me SO happy when I'm down and out.
I suffer from depression and anorexia. Michelle has been a HUGE part of helping me push through and stay strong. I write her name on my wrists everyday so, that when I get depressed or feel like cutting, I just look at my wrists and realize what it is I'm fighting for. I really just want to see Michelle live in concert cause she has been such an inspiration to me. On a brighter note, I have two cats that I just love and adore and I also have three niece's and one nephew (who will be turning 4 in 12 days).
Hi. I'm Eligh (my url is my-name-is-eligh on tumblr which is how I found the forum). I prefer not to go by my birth name. I live in Florida (although I'm originally from New York) and I'm 16. What's funny is that The Voice is a show I would never watch because I'm not really a fan of reality TV or singing shows, but my mom was watching one day and said this singer reminded her of me, so I watched. That was the night Michelle sang Somewhere Only We Know and I Knew You Were Trouble, and I just fell in love instantly. My favourite song is currently "Growing Away From You (the leaf song)." Okay three things about me: 1) Even though I'm American I tend to write colour, favourite, etc... 2) I go to a gifted school and I am literally the biggest nerd there. (Which is hard let me tell you. It's quite a feat to be nerdier than an entire school of the smartest/nerdiest kids in the entire county.) 3) I'm basically a classical music snob who will sometimes listen to pop (I currently like P!nk), but Michelle has really opened me up to alternative types of music.
Hey everyone! My name is Lynn, I'm 25 years old. I found out about Michelle from watching the Voice. Although, I actually think my old college roommate was really into "My Dear Disco." I watched the Voice this season because of Usher, to be honest. I was/am usually an Idol person, but last year I got really into Usher (I go from being into different genre's of music. As of late, I went from country to cock rock to jazz to R&B..which is why I was/am into Usher currently.) so I decided to try and watch a full season of the Voice.
Michelle was one of the people I liked early. And she became my absolute favorite when I couldn't get "Call Your Girlfriend" stuck out of my head. I really connected with Michelle when she was talking about being an introvert. though, so it was inevitable that she would be my favorite.
I found out about this forum on tumblr. (I go by "thelynnmason" on Tumblr and youtube) And I'm so excited because I'm a little bit of a forum addict. My favorite Michelle song..oh dear. Right now I really like "Growing Away From You" and "Follow Me. It Will Rain." But Dusty Trail is an awesome song.
Three things about me...um, I'm studying for the bar right now, so I'm a little crazy. (A lot crazy.) team4eyes if you've got any questions about law school or NYC, let me know..because I went to school around there..and I'm looking for a job in a similar area that you are interested in. I really like making video editing. Oh, and I love basketball.
Thanks so much for setting up a forum guys!

My name is Rebecca, and I'm 27 hailing from the Great White North...also known as Canada. How I stumbled upon Michelle was watching The Voice, because I was home visiting my mother and she watched it previously, I had not watched the show since about the first season. And as soon as I saw Michelle, I was hooked on the show, it is like she spoke to me. I told my mom right then and there she'd go till the very end, although I did say she'd come behind Danielle, as knowing how people typically vote, they never go for the BEST of the best. But, at the same time I was glad she wasn't assigned to a contract, because after studying the music industry I know she'd be much better off being her OWN boss and being HERSELF! I found out about the forum both on tumblr and twitter, following all the lovely admins! I am currently obsessing over Avalanche, because lyrically I love it and it hits a chord with me. Also, when Grenade comes on in the car, I rock out (a little too hard...well, there is no such thing). Three things about myself...hmmm, let me see. I am an only child. I love watching documentaries (about music/music industry, ancient civilizations, astronomy , serial killers...pretty nerdy) and lastly, I guess is I am in LOVE with sea otters. When I went to the Zoo last year, I may have teared up (no shame!)

Hey guys So my real name is Sarah and I'm 18 years old. I first found out about Michelle through The Voice and I swear to God I instantly fell in love. I really wish that I discovered her before when she was My Dear Disco/Ella Riot. She's shown me a whole new genre if music that I wasn't educated about before and now I absolutely love it!
I found out this forum through FuckYesMichelleChamuel 's tumblr (btw I looooove your tumblr along with YesMichelleChamuel, Tunebomb, etc.)
I really can't choose top 3 so I'll just list the most played on my phone lol -Somewhere Only We Know, Clarity, Titanium, Call Your Girlfriend, Time After Time, Grenade,(from The Voice) you know what, ALL SONGS FROM THE VOICE -White Lies, Amsterdam, My Dear Disco, All I Do (Ella Riot) -Tear Down Walls, Mr. Hyde, sooo many more(Reverb Junkie/ S/he Soo yeah I can't name just 3 songs lol
3 things about me: -I literally feel like I'm in love with Michelle (yes I am a female.) I know I'm not the only one -I'm a type 1 diabetic -I'm from MA like Michelle!

My name is (also) Michelle. I was grading papers (teacher) while listening to The Voice blind auditions. I've been a big Theo Katzman fan for two years, so when I heard "Ella Riot," my neck nearly snapped. Started watching and LOVED her take on the Katy Perry song. From then I was a gonner. I follow Tunebomb and FYMC on Tumblr = How I came to this forum. Currently, favorite MC songs = "Cry, Baby, Cry"..."Avalanche"..."All I Think of Is Love" If you asked me about MDD/ER - I'd say "For Your Love" and "Over The Noise." I'm also a big fan of her photography!
Hello fellow Frans My name is Angelia. Its prononunced Angela but just has an extra (i). Iam 37 years old and I thinkIm the oldest person on here. Oh man.. Anyways I was born in Georgia but I now live in Pennsylvania where it rains about 99% of the time. Ive watched thVoice since the 1st season and ive never never seen or heard anyone like Micelle. I was really bummed she didnt pick Adam because he is one of my favorite artists of all times. Im really glad she chose Usher though because they were a perfect match! I was captivated by her appearance and her voice. She just totally grabbed my attention from the getgo. My favorite michelle.song is you dont know. My favorite cover song isjust give mea reason.. Three facts about me... i have an amazing 8 yr old son, my sister and I were born on the same day but 13 yrs apart i can be a smartass but i can be one of the best people you will ever know!
Hello there, I'm Meagan, pronounced Meg-an, i'm 16 years young and from Maine. I'm so happy to be a part of this frandom as I posted earlier on tumblr! To FYMC & TuneBomb, you guys ARE awesome for making this! such a great way for all of us to connect.
I found my guidance in Michelle after she helped me make a positive change the second I heard True Colors. But i've been a fran of Michelle since she she stepped on the Voice stage. But I want you to all know that I wasn't only interested in her Voice performances, but super intrigued and moved by her songs before the voice. All very inspirational, she really knows how to connect with the song and people. It's amazing how she uses her talent to connect with the people listening. So with that I LOVE YOU MICHELLE. I wish I could share my favorite song but they honestly are just all so amazing and it's hard for me to choose one. But I really like, replaceable, prayer for tears, good to get away, when, we will meet again, and is she gonna. Well scratch that every song by her, ella riot, MDD, or even collaborations are all my favorites! Three things about me are I LOVE basketball, Michelle's my inspiration (obviously), and I want to go to Umass to become some sort of a nurse. One additional thing I LOVE to play the piano. My twitter is @team_Chamuel, tumblr and team-chamuel.tumblr.com. Love you ALL so much, ~Meagan.

Hello everyone! My name is Amanda and I'm 19 years old. I've been watching The Voice since Season 1 because I really liked the concept of the show and I was getting really tired of American Idol. However, as time went on I became busy with college which made me skip Season 3 and almost not watch Season 4. With that being said, I decided to flip on the Blind Auditions one night while procrastinating on coursework and it happened to be the episode Michelle was on. I loved her and continued watching the show (even though I had to skip the Battle Rounds because of finals :/)
I found this wonderful forum through FYMC. It's so hard to pick a favorite MC song, but right now it's All I Think of is Love.
OK, so this is definitely gonna be more than 3 more things about me. I'm studying Biology in college so one day I can hopefully become a veterinarian. I love drawing (mostly cartoons though). I have been able to meet many of my Youtube inspirations at various conventions in the Boston area. And I'm lucky enough to live in Massachusetts.
I'm FireboltQuaffle on Twitter and my Tumblr is fartoomanyfeels.tumblr.com

Hello! I'm Emily, I'm 23 years old. I first saw Michelle during the blind auditions and remember instantly connecting with her personality, but (I skipped watching the Knockout and Battle rounds entirely) it wasn't until True Colors that I really fell for her musically. I found out about the forum from stalking the Michelle tag on Tumblr My favorite Michelle-related song is probably Good to Get Away (s/he) or All I Think of is Love but I'm obsessed with nearly everything I've heard from her.
Other than that, I live in the DC area, reality TV is my biggest guilty pleasure (no surprise there, I'm sure), and I love animals!
Excited a place like this exists on the web. Thanks to FYMC, tunebomb, team4eyes, etc. for putting it together!

Hi Frans!!! My name is Marlena and I'm a 28 year old from Los Angeles, Cali. WOOT WOOT!!! I'm currently engaged to be married, I have a daughter who's a year and a half and I'm looking to major in family law. I found out about Michelle from watching "The Voice" Season 4 and I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her performance at the blind auditions! However, I think I officially became a fan when I saw her performance of "Grenade" and I played that video on youtube over and over again, nonstop. That's when I truly realized how talented, entertaining, and magnetic she is!!! And I believe that performance was her defining moment. But not only is she totally AWESOME on an artistic level, she is also a beautiful, humble, unique individual who stands for who she is and what she believes in, which never ceases to amaze me and I truly love, adore, and look up to her for that... Gosh, I have a few favorite songs by MC, such as "A Prayer For Tears," "Let Her Go," and "Good To Get Away." But I think my favorite thus far is "Avalance," which I'm hoping she releases in the near future! I found out about this forum through an announcement by the wonderful creators themselves on Twitter! Thumbs up to them! You guys rock!!!
Hello! My name is Monse. I'm 22 years old. I found out about Michelle through The Voice. I watched her audition and I've been captivated by her voice since then. Her personality sealed the deal for me. I found out about this forum through the creators. It looks great! I have a lot of favorite songs and they change all the time. Right now it's between Can't Stop Turning Tables and Castles.
A few things about me are that I'm actually really shy in person. I'm majoring in English, but I'm hoping to do something music related. I'm still not sure what exactly. Also, before Michelle, I used to listen to a lot of rock/alternative music, but now I'm getting into pop/electronic music thanks to her!

Hello everybody! My name is Kryscynthia long I know lol I'm 23 years old. I first heard of Michelle on The Voice and I have supported her since day one. I wish I would have heard of her sooner but hey better late then never I learned about this forum on tumbler from FYMC and I'm glad I'm here. My favorite MC songs change a lot but today I have been playing Might Not Happen and Can't Stop This Feeling. Two great songs that I can relate too Now for things about me as of right now I'm going to return to school and study music at Berklee College of Music in Boston I'm super excited to move to Massachusetts at the end of this summer.

Hello all of you fab people.
My name is Raini and I am 16 years old. I found out about Michelle during the Voice although the band My Dear Disco was very familiar to me when I was younger. My older friends listened to them. I found out about this forum on Tumblr because I follow tunebomb and fuckyesmichellechamuel. My favorite Michelle Chamuel songs from Ella Riot/MDD is Amsterdam, It Could Be, and White Lies. My favorite from The Reverb Junkie and s/he are While You're Young, Mr. Hyde, All I Think Of Is Love, Can't Make You Want Me, Is She Gonna, Good to Get Away, and many more.
3 things about me: 1) I try really hard.. almost too hard.. to get my friends into Michelle and her music. 2) I'm a California girl born and raised. 3) My dream is to travel the world and pursue a career in the photography field.
Thank you so much to the admins for creating this forum! It truly is amazing. I love being apart of the fran community and am all around in LOVE with Michelle Chamuel!
I'm Abby and I am just about 16 (6 days). I am a dedicated Voice watcher and I loved Michelle from the blind auditions! I found this through fuckyesmichellechamuel 's tumblr(which I also follow religiously ).
My favorite MC song would be "Over the Noise" right now but it changes depending on my mood.
Okay 3 facts.....uh I live in Kansas City, Missouri - moved here when I was 'bout 7 from DC. I am half Indian and I've been there a buncha times and a buncha other places. I am going into my Junior year at an all-girls high school.
My name is also Dana, it's bit unusual for a male. Actually I'm a Jr. Since my father's passing I generally don't us it.
I watch far too much TV. I never watched the Voice Season 1 or 2, and only watched some of Season 3. Not really sure why I followed Season 4, but I watched every episode, most in real time, especially when the Live shows started. I think I really chose Michelle as my favorite after I heard the Titanium Studio version,l since they only briefly covered that battle.
Until discovering Michelle, I've never participated in any social networking. I started a Twitter account several years ago to maintain some contact with the subtitling community in Europe. I maintain a very visible presence in that community, which is were my nickname 'elderman' originated.
Following Michelle's journey on the Voice has compelled me to become active with social network. I've joined Tumblr, Google+, YouTube so far in the past two weeks. Still wavering about Facebook.
I am a college grad [Finance major] but mostly spent my work life in computers. I have 2 cats (soon to be 3), 3 dogs, 2 horses and a rescued opossum.
PS. After reviewing all these posts to this point, it appears I am the only 'male' member at this point, but I do have a mostly female name.

My father's middle name is Dana My parents were very unoriginal when they named me. So you are not the only male Dana in the world, don't worry! And you probably are the only male member at this point, but that makes you even more awesome.
