Girls With Influence: Sophie Michelle
GIRLS WITH INFLUENCE is a brand new series on YAYOMG! where we celebrate girls who are making their mark across social media in a unique and positive way.
Our GIRLS WITH INFLUENCE series continues today with social media star, Sophie Michelle!
You likely know Sophie Michelle best from her YouTube channel, where she shares covers of her favorite songs, fun challenge videos, vlogs, and routine videos. She got her start around three years ago, inspired by her favorite YouTubers like Liza Koshy, David Dobrik, and Cloe Couture. When we asked her why she started her own channel, she shared, “I wanted to inspire people the same way I was being inspired, bringing positivity and happiness to those who wanted to watch my channel.”
Her success on YouTube launched her into the spotlight, allowing her to collaborate with iconic brands, like Justice, Yoobi, and Nike. It also allowed her to move to LA to follow her biggest passions – acting and singing!
Sophie Michelle’s new song, Give a Little Bit, was created in collaboration with Justice to inspire girls to give back this holiday season. It is featured on the Jam Jr. Christmas album, out today from Columbia Records. The album features your fav social media stars like GEM Sisters, Coco Quinn, and Jessalyn Grace performing renditions of holiday classics, as well as Sophie’s empowering original track. You can stream the album here!
What’s up next for Sophie? Next year might be her most exciting yet! “I’m definitely branching out and working on very exciting projects for 2020. I’m involved with a couple of different charities and super excited to make a difference by donating my time for causes I believe in. I will be singing live benefiting a local charity in Los Angeles in December, details coming soon. I’m also going to work in a lot of super cool acting projects and can’t wait to share with you guys!” she shared with YAYOMG!
