The show From Bagdad to Brookyln is Michelle Azar's one-woman show.
Michelle Azar is the daughter of an Iraqi born, Israeli-raised businessman father and a Brooklyn-born and raised singer / performer Ashkenazi mother.  
In her one-woman show Michelle shares her family's travels from Iraq to Israel to the United States along with her quest to balance her Middle Eastern heritage while being raised in an American culture.  As a child Azar sang on stage with Placido Domingo.  Using her angelic voice, deep sentiment and humor, Michelle tells a timely story of a family's dysfunction and recovery set against a unique historical backdrop.

Michelle is married to Rabbi Jonathan Aaron, they have two daughters and live in Los Angeles.  She has worked as a cantorial soloist.
