Michel’le Toussant is an American R&B recording artist who will forever hold a place in music history as one of the most important female vocalists during the "golden-age" of West Coast Hip-Hop.

This caught the attention of Andre “Dr. Dre” Young, who at the time needed a female vocalist on what would become one of World Class Wreckin' Cru’s biggest hits, “Turn Off the Lights”.
