Mica Paris, the UK’s Queen of Soul makes a highly anticipated return to The Fire Station for this very special one-off show with her band. Warmly remembered for playing one of the first ever shows at The Fire Station back in December ’21, Mica lifted the roof off with a powerhouse live show of soul and gospel classics including all of her hit singles and we are delighted that she will be back to do it all over again in May!

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 on from Mica's huge success she went on to film Gospel According to Mica - the Story of Gospel Music in six songs. 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."

Plus support from Nadedja

Described as “classy, dynamic and impressive”, Nadedja’s music has always had the power to mesmerise and captivate audiences - an uncanny, intrinsic talent first visible as a 12-year-old songwriter. UK-based but Brazilian-born, Nadedja’s alt-pop sound is the perfect blend of intoxicating and magnetic soundscapes coupled with her ethereal signature vocal delivery. 

“She has a soulful and dexterous voice and a sound that is thoroughly contemporary with programmed beats, vocal harmonies that could be the Staves, a melody that could be Solange and a folky Alt Pop sensibility that could be Arlo Parks. Mostly though, it is classy, dynamic and impressive. A real talent.” Neil March, Fresh On The Net

The UK’s ‘queen of soul’ still knows how to turn it up
