Willy Legagneur

A music with a spiritual call for love and unity of a people.
The album is like a journey of the reflections of life experiences on this globle. In which only love and walking by faith is the only deliverence availible.

Emeline can really sing. We were singing and dancing along with the music!
Well, my mom has often played Emeline Michel but I had no Haitian musical recordings of my own. After jonesing for some Haitian music, I decided to get The Very Best of Emeline Michel and was I surprised by the variety of music she sang. It was good music that even a child could listen to and it sounded wonderful. Plus the CD came quickly and was of excellent quality.

nostalgia
Allow me the opportunity to reminisce of my carefree childhood. These lyrics are powerful and moving, and it demonstrates why Emeline Michel is a successful artist.

I really like the CD. I like every single song in that CD. Like I said, She's the best. I also like the order that they place them. I cannot stop listen to that CD.

Fantastic
My wife loves Emeline Michel. She likes her music as she do understant kreyol and it was for her a great surprise to receive this CD. She wonder where I found this CD. I keep CDBaby secret for me in order make her more surprises.

Norma

Outstanding sound and vocal abilities. Magnific.
I am from the Caribbean, Virgin Islands. Sister Island to Haiti. I don't understand creole but I do overstand the sincere sound of my african ancestors eminating from a voice of consciousness. I listen to this cd all the time. My daughters, 14 and 4 years, are always in good spirits when serenaded by Emeline's voice. Balance.
