A soul sensation

CELEBRATED soul singer Mica Paris will be making a trip to Cumbria next week as part of her UK tour.


The gospel star has enjoyed a glittering musical career spanning four decades during which she has had dozens of hit records and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music.

Having exploded on to the international music scene in 1988 with the release of her debut single My One Temptation, her subsequent album, So Good, sold more than a million copies worldwide.

This led to a joint smash hit Where Is The Love with the American soul singer Will Downing, followed by collaborations with internationally-renowned artists such as Prince, Dionne Warwick and Jools Holland. In 2002, Mica moved into broadcasting and hosted her own BBC Radio 2 show, Soul Solutions, which became the most successful soul and R&B show in the UK. In 2004 she was included in the Top 10 list of the 100 Great Black Britons.

Over the years, Paris has continued to perform live at prestigious venues around the world and last year she appeared at London’s Royal Albert Hall as part of a star-studded Dusty Springfield celebration concert, singing a duet with Paul Rodgers – lead singer with Free and Bad Company.

Her appearance at Kendal Brewery Arts Centre next Thursday will form part of her nationwide My One Temptation tour.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the venue’s box office.
