Voice of the M People and solo sensation Heather Small will be hitting the stage for the first time at Birmingham’s Jam House next month as part of her stellar UK tour.
The award-winning artist is set to perform on Wednesday 17th February as part of her ‘Live in Concert’ tour, and will be hitting all the right notes with her dance hits, including the 90s smash hit Moving on Up
Throughout her impressive career, multi-talented Heather has cemented herself as a global icon, selling millions of records world-wide, winning two Best British Dance Act Awards at the Brit Awards and a Mercury Music Prize for Elegant Slumming.
As the instantly recognisable voice of the M People, Heather has had groundbreaking hits including , One Night in Heaven, and Search for a Hero.
John Bunce, general manager at the Jam House, said: “We are ecstatic to have the incredible Heather Small grace our Birmingham stage for the first time. I have personally been a fan of hers for decades and been waiting for her tour to come Birmingham and of course the Jam House. I already know that this will go down as one of my favourite performances and am already counting down until the next time she tours these parts. This will be a performance to remember and definitely a show not to miss.”
Aside from her illustrious career with the M People, Heather has had tremendous success in her own right as a solo artist and is widely regarded as one of the most successful female recording artists in recent years. The title track of her Proud album has gone on to be the soundtrack of London’s 2012 Olympic Bid, the 60th Anniversary of VE Day in Trafalgar Square, the launch of The Queen Mary 2, the Tsunami Relief Concert, England’s victory at the Rugby World Cup celebrations, and the official ceremony which marked the handover of the Olympic Games from Beijing to London.
Since conquering the world of dance music, Heather has also taken the world of dance by storm. In 2008, Heather once again stole the hearts of millions as a contestant in Series 6 of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. Since branching into television, Heather has been seen various entertainment and news programs and has become an influential voice on politics and current affairs.
Despite her public persona, Heather grew up in a West London council estate and has said to have battled with shyness and severe nerves. Instead of hiding behind those fears, Heather released her first two albums with the band Hot in the late 80s. Once Heather became the incomparable voice of the M People, there was no stopping her her stardom.
Heather Small is performing at The Jam House on Wednesday 17th February.
