Michel'le Toussaint stars in TV One's reality docu-series "R&B Divas: LA."

Michel'le Toussaint, or simply Michel'le, is known for her high-pitched, mousy speaking voice — a great contrast to her strong vocals. The R&B singer got her start as the featured female vocalist on World Class Wreckin' Cru's 1987 single "Turn Off the Lights" and quickly signed to Eazy-E's Ruthless Records. In 1989, she released her self-titled debut album that was produced entirely by then-boyfriend Dr. Dre. The album featured "No More Lies" and the hit singles "Nicety" and "Something in My Heart."

The couple had a son together but broke up shortly after Dr. Dre parted ways with Death Row Records, and in 1997, Michel'le agreed to marry Death Row Records CEO/Founder Suge Knight while he was serving a prison sentence for assault and battery. In 1998, she released her third solo effort, "Hung Jury," on Death Records. She went on to marry Shug Knight in 1999, and the couple had one daughter together before divorcing in 2002. The singer's last recording was the song "I Know Where I'm Going" on the Dysfunktional Family soundtrack in 2003.

Now a single mother, Michel'le is working on reclaiming her place in music, writing a memoir and trying to make time to reenter the dating scene.
