Singer, Songwriter, Producer LAZET MICHAELS "PRESSING FORWARD to the High Calling...! "
The title song PRESS is from Phillipians 3:13,14 Forgetting things of the Past and Reaching to What's before, I PRESS! Lazet hopes that the single "Press" inspired by the Holy Spirit, will encourage others as it has encouraged her...to forget the hurts and pains of the past such as bad relationships, unforgiveness, stubborness, addictions etc. and "Press Forward to the high calling!" such as forgiveness, healing, goals and dreams, love and joy..."Press Forward".

The CD begins with funky praise segueing into neo-soul, jazz, worship, high worship and high praise, stylized as Soul, Jazz, Alternative, Pop!

Ms. Michaels, a Detroit Native, is currently a Minister of Music at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, NY under the leadership of Pastor A.R. Bernard.

There are many single possibilities for different radio formats whether Christian, R&B or Jazz for her new release.

What sets Lazet apart from other Artist?

"I would guess that it's my versatility," she says. I'm not a traditional Gospel Artist...When I write and sing, It's a journey, exploring different styles of music, (different styles, one message) challenging the listener. You'll never guess where we're going next. ..but how exciting is the ride!!! Mahalia Jackson is My Mom's favorite Gospel singer so I grew up with a combination of Aretha Franklin, Mahalia Jackson, and Motown in the air. Gospel Music saved my life so I want to in turn encourage SOMEBODY! My job is to Spread the Good News! When you listen to my music, I pray that it will encourage you. Praise the Lord!

Some Proceeds of this CD goes to the "Feed the Children Fund".

Press

Written By: Lazet Michaels & Mike Ceril

Forgetting Things of the Past and reaching to what's before, Press, Press (repeat)(Chorus)
You can do it if you try, Press forward and you'll fly, bitterness in the past, hatred don't you let it last,
In the past lies the hurt, that will keep you down in the dirt, keep you from what is yours, Pressing Forward Opens doors (chorus)
Everything was going right, thought she had the love of life, then he went and tried a drug, everything walked out but the rug,
lost the baby sickness came, lost the job that gave her fame, had to leave no hope was left, said she'd never forgive him, never forget
(Chorus)you've got to forgive him girl, press forward, Press forward,
We're pulling down, Pulling down Strongholds, Pulling down Strongholds, Pulling down Strongholds etc./ Poverty is is the past,
sickness is in the past, hurt and pains are in the past, unforgiveness in the past, anger is in the past, reaching to what's before you, your calling is before you, your vision is before you, your purpose is before you, your dreams are before you, that degree, that house that baby is before you!
(Chorus)

Deep

Written By: Lazet michaels

He was sitting on the couch thinking
suicidal thoughts
World rejected, feeling low, wasn't good enough
The word it got into his heart, got into his ways,
and now he's stepping to new music, new purpose and praise
you are so Deep
You are so Deep
Reward are steep, plenty, plenty
yea, yea
you are so Deep

How powerful your love to conceive
a little child
a little baby grows into a girl the world can't stop
redeeming spirits flying high
forgiveness for the past and I
have got a helper, healer, friend and a way out of no way
(Chorus) Deep, you are so Deep
rewards are steep, plenty, plenty
yea, yea, you are do Deep
Oh, well there ain't no ocean Deeper
and there ain't no Deeper thought,
never found a faithful love,
who could fill me up
there are plenty lead you to the
water, but you made me drink
never thirsty cause you placed a
reservoir inside of me!
(Chorus) Deep, you are so Deep
reward are steep Plenty, plenty
are you listen you are so Deep
This is what you got, this is what you get listen...
Gotta helper, healer, friend, and a way out of no way, (repeat)

My Way

Written By: Lazet Michaels

GONNA DO IT MY WAY (8x)
Ain't gonna do it your way, you have had your time, something tells me follow who I am inside.
No use satisfying what they say you should be lying, cause it ain't you and you're withering away.
The set back was a set up for the time to win, So get out of my way cause blocking is a sin, watch me as I go higher time is now and I'm on fire, led by the inner power it won't stop!
(chorus) GONNA DO IT HIS WAY (8x)

I Ain't gonna do it your way you have had your time, something tells me follow who I am inside,
no use satisfying what they say you should be lying cause it ain't you and you're withering Away!

GONNA DO IT MY WAY, MY WAY IS HIS WAY, GONNA DO IT HIS WAY, HIS WAY IS MY WAY (repeat)

All of you and none of me, all of you and none of me, he can't do what she is blessed with. Nothing like fried Catfish, if you're thinking category, his way's the will and that's the story

GONNA DO IT MY WAY, MY WAY IS HIS WAY, GONNA DO IT HIS WAY, HIS WAY IS MY WAY!
