Black Voices with special guest Mica Paris MBE

The Sound of Black Britain

Join Black Voices on a musical journey through the musical icons of Black Britain. The Birmingham-based female a cappella quintet, accompanied by a live band and featuring special guest Mica Paris MBE, will take a trip down memory lane performing hit songs by Loose Ends, Soul II Soul, Omar, Eternal, Five Star, Aswad, Maxi Priest, Jamelia and many more…

Black Voices are the Birmingham-based vocal group who have crafted several genres into an inspiring a cappella performance beloved around the world for over 30 years. From their Handsworth home, Grosvenor Road Studios, they champion black music through performance and programmes.

Black Voices will be joined by special Mica Paris MBE. Since her first Top 10 Hit in 1988 with My One Temptation, Mica has gone on to release eight more albums. Mica released her latest album, Gospel, which came out to critical acclaim in December 2020 and shot to No. 1 in the UK R&B Album Charts – it seamlessly weaves together new material, timeless gospel classics, and spellbinding contemporary versions of songs such as Mamma Said and (Something Inside) So Strong.

Mica was recently honoured in the Queen’s birthday honours list with a MBE and signed a new 3 record album deal with Warner Music. In 2007 Mica released her own book, Beautiful Within: Finding Happiness and Confidence in Your Own Skin. 

Mica grew up singing in her grandparents’ church, and by her mid-teens was making regular appearances with The Spirit Of Watts gospel choir, with whom she featured on the 1985 EP Gospel Joy.  At the age of 18 If was signed to the 4th & Broadway label on Island Records and included her first Top 10 hit My One Temptation which peaked at #7 in the UK charts as well as a collaboration with jazz saxophonist Courtney Pine on Like Dreamers Do and Breathe Life into Me, both Top 30 UK hits. This was followed by a duet with US soul singer Will Downing on the classic Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway song Where Is The Love which broke the UK Top 20. Following Mica’s huge success she went on to film Gospel According to Mica – the Story of Gospel Music in six songs.

This event will last approximately 2 hours including an interval.
