PROFILE: Memphis The Musical's Beverley Knight
| By London Theatre Direct
Fresh out of The Bodyguard musical, British soul sensation Beverley Knight is about to star in Memphis the musical at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London.
Queen of British Soul Beverley Knight (Felicia Farrell) has been one of the UK’s most consistent artists of the past 15 years, scoring several Top 10 albums, including the platinum-selling Voice: The Best of Beverley Knight. She has sold over a million albums in the UK, including four gold certified albums. She was awarded an MBE by The Queen in 2007 for her services to British music and her charity work, has won three MOBO Awards, and been nominated for Best Female at the Brit Awards three times and for the Mercury Music Prize twice. Her live performances have gained her a legion of famous fans, from David Bowie to Prince, Take That to Quincy Jones. Performances include: supporting Prince at his 21 Nights O2 shows in 2007 and he was so taken by Beverley’s live set that he flew her to LA in 2008 to perform with him at his post-Oscars party, where they were joined on stage by Stevie Wonder. She supported Take That on their reunion arena tour, joining them on stage for ‘Relight My Fire’. Wolverhampton-born Beverley has toured the UK several times in her own right over the last decade and a half and has sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall on three occasions since she debuted there in 2007. In summer 2012, she wowed a 1 billion viewing audience with the song ‘I Am What I Am’ at the finale of the London 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony. Most recently, Beverley made her critically acclaimed west end debut as ‘Rachel Marron’ in The Bodyguard at the Adelphi Theatre.
