ABC Family Actor & R&B Teenage Singer Mishon wants fans to
“Rock My Chain”
Dynasty Records/Streamline Records/Interscope Records singer and songwriter Mishon (MY-SHAWN) Ratliff is celebrating the success of his single “Just a Kiss”. The companion video remained on BET’s 106 & Park Top Ten video countdown show for eight weeks. He recently performed the song on BET’s new late-night talk show, The Monique Show. His latest smash “Rock My Chain” is sure to get equal attention. “Rock My Chain” talks chivalry in a teenage love affair. In yesteryear, a boy would give his Varsity jacket to a girlfriend; Mishon updates this idea and croons for his girl to wear his chain. The teenage singer is sure to win young ladies over with his flirty and earnest lyrics. Mishon is not new to the spotlight. He is known for his role on the ABC Family channel’s top-rated drama “Lincoln Heights”. In his role as “Tay” for the past four seasons, Mishon’s character mirrors his own life as a singer/songwriter who performs on the show.
Inspired by icon Michael Jackson (listen to Mishon’s “Remember the Time” rendition) and other artist like Usher, Jodeci and Boyz II Men, Mishon has modernized those styles in his own unique way to a new generation of R&B fans. His ability to sing and dance makes Mishon a true entertainer. His forthcoming debut CD The Year Book is set to be released in early 2010. With a bevy of top writers and producers such as Sean “The Pen” Garrett (Usher, Pussycat Dolls, Ciara), The Underdogs (Chris Brown, Jordin Sparks), Dre and Vidal (Ciara, Usher, Mary J. Blige), Carlos “L.O.S” McKinney (J. Holiday, The Dream), The Yearbook will leave listeners yearning to sign his heart.
His middle-class African-American upbringing instilled in him three things: hard work breeds success, respect is the best etiquette and pride in your moral values. Most people that meet Mishon walk away with one common thought; he is a pleasure to meet. Mishon has been traveling the country visiting high schools and spreading the message, “If you work hard you can achieve anything. Be respectful to your parents and they will support you. Keep your support behind you and keep God number one and follow your dreams, don’t ever give up.”
