R&B singer, songwriter, and television personality Kimberly Michelle Pate, better known by the stage name K. Michelle is at Houston's HOB this weekend. It all started for the yhoung diva in 2009 when she signed a deal with Jive Records and released her first R&B-charting single called "Fakin' It" featuring Missy Elliott. After the release of "Fakin' It", she released three other R&B songs – "Fallin'", "I Just Can't Do This", and "How Many Times" – all three songs attained spots on the charts before Michelle left the label. In 2012, Michelle was added to the cast of VH1's reality series Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. Appearing on the show led her to signing with Atlantic Records and releasing her long-awaited debut album Rebellious Soul on August 13, 2013. The album was a commercial success, debuting at number 2 on the US Billboard 200, and number one on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.
