Michael D. Ellison is an African-American recording artist and actor. Ellison was born in Ethiopia and is based in Detroit, Michigan.
Ellison’s 2013 CD Flytanium is an introspective album that redefines the performer’s musical identity. Ellison’s recent film work includes roles in movie’s “Love and Honor” (2013), “Quad” (2013), and “Beyond The Mask” (2013).
The recording artist’s AfroFlow CD, released under the moniker MIKE-E, was the first hip-hop project released by Detroit’s Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, at the time the world’s largest institution dedicated to the African-American experience. The AfroFlow Tour combined music and outreach programs in the U.S. and Africa, and helped garner the artist international attention.
