Even Chuck Norris would be impressed by this: In just four weeks, WeHo singer Laura Michelle’s new single “Chuck Norris” has surpassed 4 million views on YouTube.
The pop anthem about “unleashing the Kung-Fu master that lies within us all,” is the first song off of Michelle’s upcoming debut album “Novel with No End,” releasing spring 2013.
Michelle, 28, has lived in West Hollywood for six years.
“One of the things I like is the diversity of West Hollywood. For example, my street, it’s super quiet. The feel isn’t like being in the second largest city in the U.S. You know how there’s pockets in this city that feel like you aren’t actually really in the city, but yet I can go a street or two over and there’s tons to do. It’s like a party! You’re practically drinking cocktails in the street!”
Of the Sunset Strip music venues, Michelle has primarily played at the Whisky a Go Go and Viper Room.
“I remember the first time I played the Whisky,” she said. “I felt so responsible. When I think of all the legendary artists that have played there over the last 40-50 years … I wanted to make them proud. I wanted to walk in their badass shoes. It was an ‘if the walls could talk’ experience.”
