The Queen Of British Soul Mica Paris "So Good" On Boogie

On today's 70s disco 80s pop retro radio show -- believe it or not, it’s SOUL WEEKEND on we bring you the 1988 debut album SO GOOD from The Queen of British Soul Mica Paris in the first hour; and in the second hour we’ll play the Mica Paris SOUL CLASSICS album from 2005, covering a selection of some of the greatest soul music ever written: from the likes of Smokey Robinson, Al Green, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Elvis Presley and Jimmy Ruffin...ALL performed by Mica Paris! So sit back and enjoy soul music from one of my favorite artists. It’s all happening right here on Times 100.5 FM.

Mica Paris (born Michelle Wallen, 27th April 1969, in South London) is an English soul singer, presenter on radio and television and occasional actress. In 1988, she released her debut, platinum-selling album So Good with 4th & Broadway when she was 19 years old. "My One Temptation" was the lead single. This led to a collaboration with American soul singer Will Downing on a cover version of a classic "Where Is the Love", made famous by Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack in the early 1970s.

Mica is just finishing her 8th studio album, which has been produced by the legendary Rod Temperton. Rod wrote ‘Thriller’ and other songs on Michael Jackson’s record-breaking album, produced by Quincy Jones. Rod has achieved both chart and award success with George Benson and many other music icons. Mica is very excited about this album, due for release in January 2013.

Mica Paris will be performing at the Jazz Cafe in London on New Year’s Eve, where also, the King of British Soul Soul II Soul’s Jazzie B will be djing into the wee hours of 2013.
