For Mikaelle Aimee Cartright, music is the vessel that gives her purpose. The Haitian-born singer was exposed to music from a young age through her parents, who are both ministers and encouraged her to learn to sing and pick up instruments. These days, she’s residing in Jersey City, New Jersey where she moonlights as a bartender at Harry’s Daughter when not performing.

Cartright speaks to The Haitian Times on the music that’s shaped her into the artist she is today and what to expect next.
