Michael Lizzmore's biography:-
Singer/songwriter, Mr. Lizzmore, was born in Florida and now resides in Forest Hills, New York. As a boy, Mr.Lizzmore knew his life's mission was to be a singer after he placed 3rd in a local singing contest. His mother gifted him with a record by Jackie Wilson. Being his biggest fan, she was front and center clapping and cheering as he belted out his professional-sounding rendition of Jackie Wilson's songs at home. As soon as she caught wind of it, like any real "momager" would, she entered him in the Ted Mack Amateur Contest.

The first true soul singer on the Capitol Records label, he first burst upon the airwaves in the soulful 70’s with the heart-pounding, legendary classic Promise That You’ll Wait. Crying out from the depths of his soul, he implores his woman to promise to wait for him after he goes off to war. I was the arranger and conductor on that session. I, also, wrote for him and did other sessions including a song that he did as a tribute to Jackie Wilson. After his stint at Capitol Records he stepped out with the song Never Tasted Sugar Any Sweeter with music by Brooklyn's own Crown Heights Affair.

This 4-time winner of the original “Showtime at the Apollo” is stepping out of the shadows to thrill and mesmerize you with the seductive, Hypnotized, a tune he penned giving props to the late, great Linda Jones (who, ironically, scored big with her most popular hit Hypnotized). He'll be heading back to the studio soon, with his Son Mikha-El, to record new songs.
