Lee Michelle, former contestant on the first season of “K-Pop Star,” released the music video for her first digital single, “Without You” through the official 1theK YouTube channel.

Lee Michelle had wowed the judges and impressed the Korean audience with her powerful singing voice on the “K-Pop Star” when it aired its first season in 2011. She made it to the top 5 and left the show after becoming a household name. Since then, she has focused on training and appeared as featured voice in other artist singles. Now, she makes her solo debut with “Without You.”

“Without You” is a powerful and empowering ballad about moving on and forward after the heart has been broken. While the lyrics are directed at a singular boy, the music video confronts prejudice and racism in a story about a little girl and her struggles with accepting herself. The music video’s artistic and honest approach to these topics, along with Lee Michelle’s crisp and emotional voice, draws important and meaning to the video.
