Beverley Knight is an inspiration to me personally, but also to thousands of others worldwide. She has a voice that will touch your soul, no doubt at all. It’s because of her incredible gift that she has been nominated and awarded so many accolades throughout her career so far.
Music emanates from every pore of her being when she sings and that is why every artist, songwriter and producer is clamouring to work with her. As a woman she is a huge inspiration as not only has she accomplished huge amounts as a songwriter and performer, but she completely takes life by the you-know-whats!
She is a down-to-earth gal with a purpose in life and an unstoppable passion! She’s the queen of soul, she’s obsessed with shoes and you are going to absolutely love her!
You have possibly read the fact that she was awarded an MBE in 2007 for her services to both music and charity as she has not only sold over a million albums worldwide, but she also campaigns for Christian Aid and Terence Higgins Trust.
She performed at the Beckhams' famous Japanese pre-World Cup party, she supported Take That on their 2006 comeback tour, she’s sung for Nelson Mandela, Tony Blair, for Muhamed Ali’s surprise birthday party.
She’s also performed alongside Prince, Jools Holland, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Chaka Khan, Ronnie Wood, Take That, Santana… Seriously, I could go on but I’ll save it for Monday. One thing is for sure and it is that she is one of the most phenomenal female artists this country has ever produced.
So, I for one can’t wait!! She’ll be performing two tracks live in the studio from her album that we will be selling (there'll be some signed copies available too). There will be one segment at the beginning of the hour and another at the end - don’t miss it!
I’ll obviously be chatting on air with her so any questions that you would love me to ask, post them below!
