Michelle Marie Lecza
Michelle has been a member of Faith Works since she was 5 years old. She let me throw Gospel and mature Broadway at her and she mastered it. I am so proud of her. She was on American Idol and although she did not win, she was everyone's favorite. They used her in all the promo's and commercials so the producers were taken with her also. She is writing her own music and performing all over Florida.
