Ayron Michael puts twist on 'Purple Rain'
International recording artiste Ayron Michael has joined forces with top flight Jamaican producer Kemar 'Flava' McGregor to put a new twist on an old classic. The Ohio-based singer recently recorded a cover of Prince's 'Purple Rain'.
The mild-mannered entertainer said he was a bit nervous when he was asked by McGregor to record the song.
"I must admit that I was nervous about doing this project. Who wouldn't be? Prince is a legend in every sense of the word. After I laid down my vocals, Flava was extremely pleased, that's when I knew I had nailed it," he said.
Aryon Michael's version of Purple Rain was released on July 22, 2016, since then the song has enjoyed heavy rotation worldwide.
"My version of Purple Rain is different from the original. It's reggae, and it has more harmonies than the original. I gave it the Ayron Michael treatment. The fans love it; I've been getting a lot of positive emails and social media messages from people all over the world about it," said Ayron Michael.
The Florida native is getting ready to release a new single titled Blessing in Disguise. The song, also produced by McGregor for his FM Music imprint, is available for pre-order on iTunes.
Ayron Michael developed an affinity with music from an early age. When he was a child, he would entertain his family on Saturdays by singing Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder songs. As he grew older, he got more deeply involved with singing when he joined the church choir.
