The 40-year-old singer opened up about her struggles after being unveiled as The Butterfly on U.S. TV show The Masked Singer, a singing competition where celebrities compete against each other in elaborate costumes to conceal their identities. 

When asked if asked if it was true, what she said about being insecure about her voice, Michelle replied, "That was no lie because I've done a lot of gospel so I'm kind of insecure because mainstream fans don't know my voice."

She added that sometimes it's bad to read comments from social media because "there are some mean people out there".

In 2018, Michelle announced that she was seeking out mental health treatment and shares with PEOPLE.com about some of her progress with her mental health journey.

She says, "I also learned to not make permanent decisions out of temporary feelings. I don’t know if I want to perform again. Of course, I’ll do theatre and all that stuff but do I really want to be an artist full-time? I want to make sure if the answer is no, that the reasoning behind it is not because of feeling like you’re not wanted in the industry."
