English soul singer Heather Small (the voice of M PEOPLE) is back and announces April 2018 UK Tour coming to Sheffield, Foundry!
As Part of M People, Heather small had hits such as ‘Moving On Up’, ‘One Night In Heaven’ and ‘Search For The Hero’ and albums like Elegant Slumming, Bizarre Fruit and Fresco achieving massive worldwide success, Heather became one of the seminal British voices of the 1990s, with the band winning the Best British Dance Act Award at the Brits in 1994 and 1995, as well as the Mercury Music Prize for Elegant Slumming.
Heather has since had great successes with two solo albums – the title track of her ‘Proud’ album has gone on to become the soundtrack to a whole host of very special events including London’s successful 2012 Olympic bid, the 60th anniversary of VE Day in Trafalgar Square, the launch of Queen Mary 2, the Tsunami Relief Concert, England’s victory at the Rugby World Cup celebrations, and the official ceremony marking the handover of the Olympic Games from Beijing to London..
2009 was another busy year for Heather as she took to the road again with her band completing two highly successful UK tours in May and November, performing at over 30 venues nationwide to sell-out crowds. She also continued her TV work with regular slots on music, entertainment, and politics shows, including ‘Dancing On Wheels’, a wheelchair dancing competition-come-documentary airing on BBC Three in early 2010.
In the Autumn, Heather teamed up with singing sensations Anastacia and Lulu for the critically acclaimed ‘Here Come The Girls’ – an unforgettable night of feel-good party music and dance, touring arenas across the UK and Ireland during November and December 2010.
Well known for her charitable work, Heather was recently made an ambassador for the children’s charity Barnardo’s and is continually involved with fundraising and helping lend her valuable support to projects around the country.
So what gives Heather the impetus to keep moving forward, to keep challenging herself, to keep trying new things and not resting on her laurels? ‘If you got the feeling I do when I sing’ she smiles, ‘you’d understand’.
