Soul diva Beverley Knight is the VIP headliner at Signature’s luxury afternoon tea.
With a string of critically-acclaimed albums, MOBO awards and even an MBE to her name, the musician quite rightly deserves her soul superstar status.
Heavily influenced by American soul music like Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin, Knight has released eight studio albums to date – and is regarded as one of Britain's greatest soul singers.
Best known for her hit singles "Greatest Day", "Get Up!", "Shoulda Woulda Coulda" and "Come as You Are" she’ll be performing a selection of her chart hits during afternoon tea, and meeting and mingling with fans.
The Wolverhampton-born musician sang in a gospel choir from her early childhood, began writing songs at the age of 13 and started to perform at clubs in her hometown in her later teens. In 1994 she signed a record deal, releasing her first album The B-Funk a year later. The record was a critical hit, earning Beverley a Black Music Award in 1996 for Best R&B Artist. Beverley Knight has eight studio albums under her belt, and her 2016 Greatest Hits went Platinum in the UK charts. She has also won three MOBO Awards, twice scooping the Best R&B Act gong and winning Best Album in 1999 for Prodigal Sista.
Beverley has made forays into TV, most notably on BBC show Just the Two of Us and has made four seasons of Beverley's Gospel Nights on BBC Radio 2. She has broken into musical theatre, launching her stage career with a role in The Bodyguard in 2013 and going on to star in Memphis and Cats.
Beverley is a charity ambassador and campaigner and it was this work, combined with her musical achievements, that was recognised with an MBE, which she received from The Queen in 2007.
