'Patti Labelle meets Nathan Lane'! Critics bestowed upon him this catch phrase, and the label fits. Michael Cagle is a multi-award winning, big voiced, Broadway/Pop style singer 'full of power and passion'. Whether it a power ballad, a showstopping showtune, or a rafter-shaking Gospel number, his abilities have landed him dozens of 'Best Male Vocalist', 'Best Over-All Performer' and ''Entertainer of the Year' accolades, as well as a 13 month stint HEADLINING in a SHOWROOM in Las Vegas.
He has appeared with or opened for, or sang with such artists as: Reba McEntire, Michael McDonald, The Drifters, Trisha Yearwood, Steven Curtis Chapman, Kenny Loggins, Ron Kenoly, Gary Morris, CCR, Sheena Easton and many many more!!!!
Recently signed to a major record label, Michael is
available several different ways: IN HIS ACCLAIMED ONE-MAN SHOW (with optional music director/keyboard player or tracks)- perfect for theater style venues;
with a band (or if budgetary constraints- tracks) in a concert setting- for music festivals or State/County Fairs;
or with an orchestra. Because Michael was literally raised on stage, performing in countless musicals that ranged from community theater to professional touring companies, you will not find a performer with more stage presence and charisma when the lights come up.
Versatilty is key for Michael- his 4 years of classical training, two years of jazz, six years of music theater and many years of gospel touring gives him the ability to sing just about anything, and not sound like an opera singer 'trying' to do pop or R/B. One minute he is belting out 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', the next thing you know he is doing something from 'Jekyll and Hyde', an Andrew Lloyd Webber show such as 'Phantom' or 'Jesus Christ Superstar', or maybe something contemporary and edgey like 'Rent', . He can rock the house with 'Faithfully', get the audience on their feet with 'Last Dance', and then raise the roof and spirits with 'You Raise Me Up' or an ovation inducing Gospel number.
Winner of TNN's Fast Track To Fame and a two time quarter finalist on Next Big Star, Michael has appeared on television shows on Fox, has been seen on HBO, E!, The Discovery and Travel Channels as well as TBN.
From the moment he enters the stage, versatility and presentation is key with Michael, and he fuses his four and half octave range with a charismatic stage presence and delivery second to none.
NOT AN IMPERSONATOR, Michael is uniquely himself, selling a song his way and not copying someone else's style. One thing is for sure, Michael Cagle's years of touring, concerts and stage experience is very evident. Michael does the kind of showstoppers usually reserved for big name 'divas' or on the stages of New York.
From opener, to his signature closer 'Over The Rainbow'- Michael entertains like very few can.
