The iconic voice of M People will take to the stage for one night in Coventry next year.
Heather Small will be performing live in a rare intimate gig at Rialto Reborn in Coundon on Saturday, April 28.
It’s been 25 years since M People stormed the charts and Heather’s distinctive soulful voice was introduced to the world.
Now she will be bringing all her dance anthems to Coventry, including ‘Moving On Up’, ‘One Night In Heaven’, ‘Search For The Hero’ and her big solo hit ‘Proud’.
M People won back-to-back Best British Dance Act at the Brit Awards in 1994 and 1995, making Heather one of the most recognisable voices in British music.
Over her career she has sold more than 11 million records, had nine top-10 UK chart hits and won the Mercury Prize for ‘Elegant Slumming’ in 1994 with M People.
Her most famous solo track ‘Proud’ has gone on to become the soundtrack for a host of TV shows, films and special events, including London’s successful 2012 Olympic bid.
The show will celebrate Heather’s quarter of a century in music and also coincide with the release of a new album and filming of a documentary.
Dan Nelmes, of Rialto Reborn, said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be welcoming one of the 1990s iconic voices to Rialto Reborn in April next year.
“To this day, Heather Small’s songs are featured on nightclub playlists all over the world and to have the chance to see her perform live in a venue like this will be incredible.
“We’re focused on bringing the best acts to Coventry and our line-up at the venue for 2018 is looking incredible.
“We’re already seeing a huge demand for tickets to this show, we’re 100% expecting it to sell-out, so I would encourage everyone to book early to make sure they don’t miss out on this show.”
The event is being promoted by Coventry-based Showtime Promotions.
Heather will be joined on stage by a support act, who is yet to be confirmed and a live DJ will continue the party until 2am.
Doors open at Rialto Reborn on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 7.30pm.
