Michaela Paige, a former contestant on the hit NBC television show The Voice, is bringing her message of empowerment to University of Findlay’s campus on Feb. 17, 2020.
Paige’s appearance is sponsored by Oilers Changing Campus Culture and Student Affairs, and is a part of her BE YOU campaign, in which she uses her voice to help and inspire others.
Paige is slated to offer two different programs, one for UF faculty and staff entitled “Teaching in the 21st Century,” on which the focus will be how to better support all students, and another for the UF and surrounding community, where she hopes to “reach out to teenagers and college students through her self-realization, offering encouragement, empowerment and belief in themselves in order to pursue their dreams.”
Since an early age, Paige has been performing nationally with the goal and intent of using her gift to help and inspire others. In 2016, she and her team launched the BE YOU campaign as a means to connect with her young audience and empower them through music. She’s traveled the country spreading her message and engaging her fans in an effort to put smiles on their faces.
In 2019, Paige teamed up with the Grammy Museum to work on teaching master classes to underserved students involved in performing arts at local schools in and around Newark, NJ. Her first classes will take place in March of this year.
Paige has been in USA Today and Rolling Stone magazine, and also spent four years as creator and host of three radio shows with Talk4Media, a company partnered with iHeart. She’s shared the stage with artists such as Blake Shelton, Hunter Hayes, Smash Mouth, C+C Music Factory, Fantasia, Vanilla Ice, Sugar Hill Gang, and the Temptations.
