She has also received nominations for MTV Music Video, Billboard Music, and American Music Awards.
Michaels has been writing in the Hollywood Pop Circuits since she was 16. When she was 20, she met her songwriting partner Justin Tranter with whom she frequently collaborates. Together with the Norwegian musician Kygo she performed "Carry Me" at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
When Michaels released her first solo single, "Issues". "It was the first time I'd written a song that sounded so much like myself that I couldn't picture anyone else singing it," Michaels said. According to Michaels, many big name artists fought for the song, but Michaels kept the song for herself. For the song she gained much notoriety and fame, and became a standout new star of 2017. At the 2018 Grammy Awards she was nominated for 2 awards, Best New Artist and Song of the Year for "Issues".
