Other Info
The UK's Soul Queen is back to her first passion: music. And music is the focus this Summer as Mica has been invited to launch the Rhos Summer Sounds festival at the Stiwt Theatre, Wrexham on Saturday June 12th.

Mica has launch into 2010 in the best possible way with a new single, 'Born Again' (the title track from her highly acclaimed album), and a string of intimate shows showcasing her amazing vocal dexterity and funky band.

Mica Paris's roots are in soul and gospel music. She grew up singing in her grandparents' church and by her mid teens was making regular appearances with 'The Spirit of Watts' gospel choir. She was soon noticed as a distinctive voice and at seventeen got her first break as a backing vocalist with the UK chart band 'Hollywood Beyond'.

In 1988, she released her debut, platinum-selling album, So Good, from which she had her first top ten hit with 'You Are My One Temptation'. This led to a collaboration with American soul singer, Will Downing, on a cover version of 'Where Is The Love', a song made famous by Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack in the early '70s.

Autumn of 2003 saw Mica being presented with the Gold Badge Award by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters for her special contribution to the British entertainment industry. Mica has most recently been seen presenting the programme ‘What Not To Wear’.

Mica will be appearing by special arrangement for the launch of a brand new and exciting festival for North East Wales: Rhos Summer Sounds Festival. The festival has been organized by two local volunteers who hope to bring the community together with a little bit of something for everyone. From 12th June to 28th August over 35 acts will perform over 90 days both at the Stiwt, in and around the village, and at Ponciau Park. For more details please visit: www.rhossummersounds.com.
