Biography

Michael Bell is a Songwriter/Music Composer/ Producer/Studio Engineer.

He began playing trombone at the age of 13yrs. Old, and later began playing guitar, bass and drums for various local groups in the Detroit area. In 1984, Michael became a church organist and minister of music, and later went on to record several albums as a Record Producer. He produced his first big recording in 1999, on the contemporary Christian artist Jeannine Byerly. He has since written and produced several more albums, of which, some have charted radio success.

Michael has played guitar for such recording artists as: David Ruffin, Tyrone Davis, Laura Lee, The Floaters Orchestra, Orlando Draper, and many others. He has since become a proficient songwriter, music composer/producer and sound engineer.

Michael won $6000 worth of recording equipment in a 2004 songwriting competition at: songwriter.tv, and also was a finalist (four songs in three categories) in the UK 2004 International Songwriting Contest. He's had fifteen #1 songs on the broadjam Top 10 Charts, and. as Michael would say, "writing a song is like taking a drink of water, I don t have to think about how to do it, it just comes so naturally."

One unique thing that stands out about Michael is his ability to play the role needed in creating, and displaying his demo song material. He is the writer, composer, arranger, producer, performer and studio engineer on over 95% of his demo songs.

Although Michael claim is truly as a songwriter, he is grateful that many of his other talents are being displayed through his music.

Writing and Producing and performing original music is what Michael Bell is all about!

Lyrics

If I Could I Would

Written By: Michael Bell & Jenny Morales

I WOULD IF I COULD

VERSE 1
I would be with you now if I could
I would hold you somehow If I could
I would love you tonight – and make you feel alright
If I could do all those things I would

I would give you a new start if I could
I would fix your broken heart if I could
I would take away your sorrow - And give you a new tomorrow
If I could all those things I would

HOOK
IF I COULD – I WOULD
Remove the frown from your face
And put a smile in its place
IF I COULD – IF I COULD
IF I COULD DO ALL THOSE THINGS
I WOULD

VERSE II
I would give you happiness – If I could
I would fill your emptiness – if I could
I would take your hurt away – and give you a brighter day
If I could do all those things – I would

I would head in your direction – If I could
To give you my affection – If I could
Cause I love you girl - I would give you the world
If I could do all those things – I would

HOOK
IF I COULD – I WOULD
Make you see you are the best
And that you stand out from the rest
IF I COULD – IF I COULD
IF I COULD DO ALL THOSE THINGS
I WOULD

If I COULD – I WOULD
Keep you close to my heart
And make sure we never part
IF I COULD – IF I COULD
IF I COULD DO ALL THOSE THINGS
I WOULD

IF I COULD DO ALL THOSE THINGS - I WOULD
