Queen of Soul Mica Paris is one of the UK’s finest and most respected singers with a long career of hit singles and albums.
Since her first Top 10 hit in 1988 with My One Temptation, Mica has gone on to release six more albums. Her latest, Gospel, came out to critical acclaim in December 2020 and shot to No 1 in the UK R&B Album Charts. In it, she seamlessly weaves new material together with timeless gospel classics, and spellbinding contemporary versions of songs such as Mamma Said, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man’s Human, Foreigner’s I Want To Know What Love Is and Labi Siffre’s (Something Inside) So Strong.
Alongside her stellar international singing career, Mica is also in demand as a writer, presenter, broadcaster and actor, and has become a popular media personality, hosting her own Radio 2 soul show Soul Solutions, which attracted an average of 1 million listeners and became the most successful soul show in the UK. She has also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and Loose Women.
Mica has appeared regularly on the West End stage and in a variety of TV roles, from Miss Marple: At Bertram’s Hotel to, most recently, joining the residents of Albert Square as Ellie Nixon in EastEnders.
