“We wanted to put together a line-up of some of the most innovative Soul artists that helped to shape the music as we know it today”, said Omar Harrison, TBH Events
“From the Godmother of Soul herself, to the UK’s most iconic Soul music collective, Soul II Soul, we’re sure it’ll be an entertaining and memorable night for the audience.”
After her 16 years as the lead singer of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles, LaBelle made the decision to go solo and went on to be honoured with numerous awards and several number one hits including ‘If Only You Knew’ and ‘On My Own’, a duet with Michael McDonald.

Dating back to the late 1960s, The Whispers are one of R&B’s most beloved vocal groups. They have had 33 top ten hits over three decades, and over 20 Billboard charted albums.
However, it’s not just about acts from the States. Waving the British flag on the Great Voices of Soul line up is one of the UK’s most successful groups, double Grammy Award winners Soul II Soul.

Rounding up this spectacular line-up, are The S.O.S. Band, one of the hottest 80s R&B collectives, Gwen Dickey known to many as the lead singer of 70s disco group, Rose Royce and Meli'sa Morgan, who has worked with a number of legends including Whitney Houston and Chaka Khan, both onstage as well as in the studios.
