The 16-year-old singer, who is half-Italian and half-Spanish, uses the stage name “Mike Chelsen” for an interesting reason.

Chelsen was the name of his school teacher who was a guide and mentor to him – especially when he was bullied by classmates for his unconventional style.
Things went so bad at one point that he even contemplated suicide. Fortunately, music eliminated the darkness from his life and gave him new confidence. It was then he adopted the name “Mike Chelsen” – as a homage to his teacher who died in a car accident a few years earlier.
These days, a strong social media presence seems to be a prerequisite for anyone hoping to leave a mark on the world. But Mike Chelsen has perhaps decided to take it to a whole different level. On TikTok, he is already an influencer with a whopping 100,000 followers.

On that journey, Mike has already made some significant progress. His first single, “Starlight”, was released last month and is currently streaming on Spotify. Despite his flamboyant appearance, Mike’s music could only be described as “somber”. The calmness in his voice, coupled with the deep lyrics and smooth background sounds, makes for a musical treat.
