SOUL REFINED, which is committed to entertaining the masses through concerts and other events, initially began showcasing top-notch talent in Baton Rouge in 2008. The LOVE SOUL concert featuring Chrisette Michele and Eric Roberson is a milestone for the brand as a Chrisette Michele concert held in January 2009 ignited a series of concerts and comedy shows throughout 2010 and continuing in 2011.
Fans came to love Chrisette Michele through her wildly popular debut album, I Am, and her sophomore album, Epiphany. Her latest effort, released in November, is also proven to be a success. Let Freedom Reign debuted at No. 25 on the US Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 42,000 units.
