MICA PARIS SINGS ELLA FITZGERALD
Mica Paris is one of the UK’s most respected female singers with a career that is full of Top 10 hit singles and worldwide albums. She will take the stage at Islington Assembly Hall for a special night where she is going to be singing songs by the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald. She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction and a “horn-like” improvisational ability especially in her scat singing.
Mica has made a huge impact on the music scene since her debut, platinum-selling album ‘So Good’ in 1988, with the range, power and soulfulness of her singing. More worldwide hit albums and singles followed her debut album including ‘Black Angel’, ‘Stay’ and ‘Carefree’, and she has collaborated with many respected artists such as Prince and Jools Holland.
Mica released two tracks produced by Guy Barker to celebrate the centenary of Ella Fitzgerald’s birth. She recorded the two classics ‘Imagine My Frustration’ and ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye’ from the Ella Fitzgerald songbook. The interest and response of these two songs were remarkable and it will be incredible to hear her sing them live.
