Listen to Johnnie Mikel and other great artists on exclusive Spotify playlists.
Age is truly nothing but a number. This is especially true in the case of Johnnie Mikel. Coming off his highly successful debut single, Come with Me, Johnnie recently released his first EP, Night of Your Life.
He’s an accomplished singer, songwriter, performer and musician who just debuted in the top 40, all before his 21st birthday. While most of us were figuring out our lives in our late teens, Johnnie was mastering Pro Tools and all the string instruments he could get his hands on to make some of the most fun and exciting music around today: grandiose electro-pop with hints of R&B. It’s what music should be.
Part musical wunderkind, part storyteller, Johnnie is a rare breath of fresh air. When he’s not crafting pop tunes that’ll get you moving, thinking and even crying – yes, Johnnie can croon out a ballad so beautiful that it’ll bring tears to your eyes – he’s giving back. His One Word Foundation, based off one of those emotional ballads, One, focuses on teaching kids the importance of their words. A single word can have an impact on someone’s life and the foundation, which benefits different charities, helps kids understand that what they say matters. “I’ve been given a gift,” Johnnie states, “And I need to use it to give back.”
