Owning My Brand

Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club

Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club


In an effort to heed the advice of the PR gurus, I’m taking ownership of my brand. Since no one can advocate for “me” better than me, I’m going to take advantage of every social outlet that I can (within reason… I’m still not ready to Twit…Chirp… Whatever the hell it is!).

I’m going to try and be more proactive about engaging my audience (that’s ALL of YOU), and I’m going to ask you to help me with that. When I post something, give me a little love, and that will encourage me to keep at it. If you’ve got a Page that I haven’t already Liked, point me to it so I can give you a little love, too!

Not everything I post will be about me. Of course, a lot of it will be. That’s the point! I’ll occasionally shine a light on some of my favorite artists and colleagues, since we’re all kind of in this thing together (it may occasionally be a cutthroat business, but each little success benefits all of us!). I’ll post articles I’ve read that I think are relevant to the Arts, Singing, Marketing or it might just be something I thought was worth a Share.

The old regime is faltering, so it’s time for us to take up the mantle and see what we can do to elevate this art form that elevates us!!! Who’s with me!?!? If so, please feel free to click; Like or Share or Follow or all the above.

Welcome to Michelle’s Operatic World!

Hello!  Welcome!

I decided to create my own personal Blog/Website centered around the wonderful world of Opera. I am a professionally trained opera singer. I am a struggling artist trying to break into the, supposedly, Dying World of the Arts.  But I love the art form! And I think all Americans would, too, if they just gave it a chance.

I do feel that America is hurting and has a craving for true creativity.  Hence the creation of so many social media apps, such as Facebook, YouTube, Blogging, LinkedIn, Twitter and so on.  I also feel that our current government systems and entertainment industries are killing the inspiring works of so many art forms for the general good of profit, at the expense of a more enlightened society.  I feel that it is time for us to open our eyes and step up into action.  By action, I mean turn off the boob tube, and go out and see an opera, art gallery, national park, symphony, or ballet. You might just be surprised and enjoy it.

So, here I am!  Trying to use this media outlet to further my love of Opera and to boost my own career.  It’s always a gamble.  But if I can reach one person, I will know I succeeded. So, here we go… the good fight… the struggle… and the eventual success of Michelle Kei Ishuu, a Soprano, Singing Out Loud!!!
