Mica Paris, the UK’s soul queen, is performing in the spectacular East Wintergarden on 20 October, it was announced today.

After several years as a successful actress, broadcaster and author, Mica is back to her first passion; music. In June 2009 she released her first album for 10 years, ‘Born Again,’ and embarked on a sell-out tour, including gigs at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.

The Canary Wharf gig, part of the Acoustic After Hours With… series, will be a special evening, with the range, power and soulfulness of Mica’s voice performing her old favorites and acclaimed new album.

Sian Astrop, Canary Wharf Arts & Events Manager, was enthusiastic about the eminent London performer bringing her talents to Canary Wharf “Mica Paris is one of those rare people to have carved out brilliant career in several creative areas; as a broadcaster, actress and stage show performer. Music is her first passion and we’ll be giving her a warm Canary Wharf welcome at the East Wintergarden. It should be a sell-out,” she said.

South London duo Turin Brakes open the Acoustic After Hours Series on 29 September, also at the East Wintergarden. This concert has already sold out.

“Turin Brakes are an ideal act to launch the Acoustic After Hours with… series. Hailing from Balham, they have a very loyal London following and will be sure to impress a Canary Wharf crowd with their latest work,” said Astrop. Further information at www.mycanarywharf.com
