Chamuel, an Amherst resident and former barista at Woodstar Cafe in Northampton, made it to the finale of “The Voice,” before finishing second last spring. But her journey on the show gained her a loyal local following.

She will talk about self-expression through art, and her creative process as a musician and artist. “Being able to express myself in writing and art is a very large part of who I am,” Chamuel said in a press release for the event. “Voices From Inside helps others find the tools that I am so grateful to have found.”

The organization provides writing groups and leadership training for women and teens who are or have been incarcerated.

The fundraising event will be held at 7:30 p.m. at First Churches on Main Street in Northampton. In addition to Chamuel’s performance, participants of the writing groups will read from their works. The event will be hosted by Executive Director Cathy McNally.

Tickets are available at Cooper’s Corner in Florence, Serio’s Market in Northampton, and online at voicesfrominside.org.

Chamuel’s new album, “All I Want,” will be available in a limited-edition format with the purchase of higher priced tickets to the event.

Tickets are $15 to $25 or $30 to $50 for the tickets accompanied by her new album. For more information, visit the organization’s website.

Great article -thanks BUT readers should know that Michelle Chamuel will be speaking about the creative process and her journey- NOT SINGING. It will be a great evening but not one that includes her singing. Cathy McNally, Exec. Director, Voices from Inside

I'm so happy for Michelle. Congratulations for her new album. Hope locals will support her and her charity. Btw, she has also attracted loyal fan base from around the world and who are now so envious of the locals who'll have the thrilling opportunity to be with Michelle up close. I bet you just don't realize how lucky you are for having her so near!
