However, she is completely a queen in her own right, crown or not. For anyone lucky enough to have seen her live in concert in SIX or on the cast recording that is available on Spotify, you know her voice is absolutely phenomenal. Atkinson also has her debut solo album ‘Step Inside Love’, which was released earlier this year. As well as wowing audience at the Arts Theatre she has previously starred in In The Heights, Legally Blonde and The Wizard of Oz. It is without a doubt that Aimie Atkinson’s intimate concert at Sunday Favourites is going to be a showstopping performance and a must-see for any fan of hers.
