Micah “The Voice” Lee
It only takes one chord from his soul-stirring tenor to fall in love with the smooth crooning of South Florida’s own
Micah “The Voice” Lee. Boasting an eclectic blend of jazz, neo soul, R&B and gospel, this multi-talented entertainer has mastered the art of sound and captivated the hearts of listeners.
“Music has power in it,” Micah contends. “And we as musicians have a responsibility to bring positivity to the music. I state problems. I state issues. And I state a way out of it for everybody. In my music, I encourage people to have faith.”
As naturally gifted as Micah is, however, entertainment was ironically not his first love. Instead, the Boynton Beach, Fla.-raised, adolescent was heavily involved in sports since his father first signed him up in little league baseball.
On any given day, young Micah could be found on either the football field or basketball court. And through high school, the six-foot-six-inch dual athlete played defensive end for the football team and center in basketball.
He didn’t start singing until he was 13 when his grandmother put him on the spot in church and asked him to sing one Sunday morning. “I want to tell you it was a great thing but it was pretty bad,” Micah laughs. “I have one of those grandmothers that doesn’t like to be embarrassed. And I swore I would never let that happen again.”
From that point on, he sought to master his voice as well as his athletics. He joined the church’s praise and worship team where he spent years honing his craft. After graduation, he enrolled in school at Florida Memorial in Miami to study political science and public administration.
But his life took a twisted turn one dreaded Labor Day Weekend when Micah was almost killed in a car accident. He was driving home to Fort Lauderdale from school when his SUV hydroplaned off the road in the pouring rain and landed in a canal. The water began to rise rapidly until his nose became quickly and completely submerged. He could no longer breathe.
“Some kind of way, I kicked my way out of the window and swam out,” Micah thinks back. “But my legs were turned backwards.”
When Micah made it out of the intensive care unit two months later, he was told that his legs would have to be amputated and he would never walk again. “But God didn’t see it being that way,” he testifies.
After a year in a wheelchair, Micah astonished the doctors with a full recovery. “It was all for a purpose. It led me to understand the heeling wasn’t my own,” says Micah. “It helped me to realize that now is that time to push forward and do what I need to do.”
Since then, Micah has known no boundaries. He launched a career in print modeling and has been featured in several musicals and stage plays including “Soul of a Black Woman” and “Bad Girls of the Bible” and countless others.
“I call myself a renaissance man,” he explains, “because I do it all.”
Micah has also been touring promoting his music. Additionally, Micah signed with South Florida-based Deb-B King Management and awaiting the release of his debut album Victory. The album’s up-tempo lead single “Forever Feat. Da T.R.U.T.H.” & FOLLOWUP “Heaven” are just a small taste of what Micah has to offer. Although, both of those songs have landed in the TOP 20 on the BILLBOARD CHARTS and Gospel Radio
“Music effect hearts,” he contends. “It’s always been in my heart sing so I want my music to move, to stir emotion. It’s so much power in it. My lane is to uplift someone and encourage.”
