Since graduating from the Royal Academy of Music, I have had an incredibly successful career in musical theatre, pop and even in the movie business.

Starting professional life as a backing vocalist, my list of credits is extensive: Lisa Stansfield, Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, Heather Small, Michael Ball, Mariah Carey, Girls Aloud, Sugababes, James Brown, Jimmy Nail, Ronan Keating, Lemar, Simple Minds, Belinda Carlisle, Patti La Belle, Joss Stone and I was also the resident backing vocalist to Charlotte Church on her TV shows and tours.

I also have my own recording career, described as a ‘legendary dance vocalist’ by Radio 1’s Scott Mills and ‘the UK’s favourite dance diva’ by Heat magazine my voice is also instantly recognisable as the voice of some of the biggest club hits of the past two decades, including ‘Hold on-Freemasons’, ‘Dare Me-Junior Jack’, ‘Watch out-Alex Gaudino’, ‘Guilty-De Souza’, ‘Nothing I won’t do-JX’, ‘Nothing better-Erick Morillo’ and several other UK chart hits.

However, it was Michael Gray’s ‘The Weekend’ that drove my International success after reaching no: 7 in the UK National Chart and becoming a Worldwide hit record.

I also have an impressive pedigree as a solo artist, recording and co-writing three albums that include the radio hits ‘Can’t stop the rain’ and ‘Nasty little rumour’ as well as ‘Electrosexual’ which was featured alongside Daniel Craig in the recent Hollywood blockbuster ‘Girl with the dragon tattoo’. I am also the songwriter behind ‘One in a million’ the recent Radio 1 playlist hit by Drumsound and Bassline Smith featuring Fleur.

However, I also have yet another string to my bow. I am a FABULOUS Whitney Houston impersonator, looking and sounding almost indistinguishable from the famous diva. So much so in fact that I was chosen from 6,500 applicants to play Whitney in the Channel 5 documentary ‘Autopsy: Whitney Houston's last hours'.

I perform a ‘Simply Whitney’ show either solo to playback or with an awesome live band. I perform all of Whitney’s biggest hits including ‘I wanna dance with somebody’, ‘So emotional’, ‘Saving all my love’, ‘It’s not right, but it’s ok’, ‘My love is your love’, ‘I’m every woman’ and of course the wonderful ‘I will always love you’.
