MICA PARIS is one of the UK’s finest and most respected singers with a long career of hit singles and albums marking her out as the undisputed British Queen of Soul.
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.
In 2021 Mica teamed up with Guy Chambers, Jamie Cullum, James Bay and Tom Fletcher as part of Gary Barlow’s supergroup for the TV project ‘I’m With The Band’, the pilot transmission for which included Mica’s stunning solo performance on “Somebody Else’s Guy”.
Mica also starred at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, performing live in front of Buckingham Palace in June 2022. She brings her full band to Sandbanks for an exclusive show at Boogie on the Beach.
