ith a microphone in
one hand and a
flute in the other,
Michelle Rott has led a
musical life.
"My mom was always
singing, and my dad was
always playing the trumpet"
Rott said. "I eventually took
up the flute, piano and sing-
ing."
At 5, she performed with
the Sheldon Rott and Vickie
Carroll Orchestra — her
parents' band — singing the
only song she knew, "You
Light Up My Life." Seven
years later, she appeared as
one of the Purim Sisters, a
parody of the Pointer
Sisters, in a Congregation
Shaarey Zedek show. When
she was 14, Rott starred in
Oy Vay Broadway at Camp
Tamarack. And she's been
performing full throttle over
the past few years, singing
with North Farmington
High School's "Starletts"
and the "Northern Lights."
Last month, Rott entered
WJR Radio's "Quest For
Excellence" music competi-
tion by sending in a tape of
her recording of "On My
Own," a song from Les
Miserables. More than 300,
15-24 year olds submitted
tapes of either their vocal or
instrumental performances
in the classical, jazz or pop
category.
The tapes were judged by
local professional musicians,
and eight were chosen in
each category. Rott was
selected as one of the per-
formers in the pop division
and will advance to the
quarterfinals. She'll com-
pete next in Farmington
Hills at Oakland Commun-
ity College's Smith Theatre

8 p.m. Sept. 12. Her perfor-
mance of "On My Own" will
be broadcast three days later
on WJR.
One of her biggest musical
memories took place in
January 1989 when Rott ac-
companied the North Farm-
ington High School Band to
Washington, D.C., to per-
form at the presidential in-
auguration — and met Ar-
nold Schwarzenegger.
Today, the 18-year-old
Farmington Hills resident
has recorded more than 500
songs — via Guest Artist, a
recording studio owned in
part by her parents. Rott
now has a recording studio
in her home.
Rott credits her parents for
her musical talent. Her
father, Sheldon — who was
once a record promoter for
Capitol Records when the
Beatles were singing on its
label — has been in the
music business for more
than 30 years. And her
mother, Carol, has perform-
ed on stages across the
United States and has ap-
peared on TV shows,

"I learn a lot by listening
to other people — Barbra
Streisand, Stevie Wonder
and my mom, who has
helped me with my stage
presence and dynamics,"
Rott said. "She's also taught
me that it's a rough busi-
ness." Rott was accepted to
Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity's School of Music for
next fall. There, she'll study
child psychology and con-
tinue making music.
"I plan to participate in as
many musicals in college as
possible —considering I have
to study," Rott said. "I'm br-
inging my recording equip-
ment with me to school. I
sure hope my roommate
doesn't kill me." ❑
