With a mix of hip-hop, rock, soul and a Latin flavour, Michelle returns to the scene after her much praised 'Phenomenal' album of 2006 to deliver a top class set with the message of Jesus firmly in the lyrics. The album starts with a diary entry, a prayer to God, asking for forgiveness and dedicating the album to God, paving the way for the rest of this total praise and worship, Jesus dedicated album. "Our Generation" with guests Lecrae and Flame is an encouragement that in Christ we can change the world, "we are the hope of the promise that tomorrow brings". There are many songs on the album which a lot of people will be able to relate to such as "You" telling us that no matter what we are going through, when we find it hard to pray, we can still talk to God, because in those times that's who we need. Other songs that people may be able to relate to include "My Story", Michelle's story of being stressed and under pressure but knowing that God is there, and "That's What Love Is", about someone searching for love, pointing to Jesus as the answer of true love. A welcome return to the scene for a top rate R&B gospel talent.

Product Description
After 4 years multifaceted singer/songwriter Michelle Bonilla has released her sophomore studio effort entitled In Spite of Me. The recent Temple University Cum Laude graduate first came on the scene with her 2006 release "Phenomenal" where her single 'Sin Ti' charted on the top 20 CHR charts. She’s back with her producer/husband Lee Jerkins (Kiera Sheard, Out of Eden, Cross Movement) with an inspirational 16-track CD--13 full songs and three diary excerpts--with strong infusions of R&B, pop and Latin melodies featuring Jamaican gospel recording artist Chevelle Franklin, and gospel hip-hop artists Lecrae, Flame, and R-Swift.
