Mica Paris

    Mica Paris is one of the UK’s finest and most respected female singers with a career full of Top 10 hit singles and albums worldwide.

    Paris’ roots are in Soul and Gospel music. She grew up singing in her grandparents’ church and by her mid teens was making regular appearances with ‘The Spirit of Watts’ Gospel choir (with whom she featured on the 1985 EP Gospel Joy). She abbreviated her forename to Micha, before adopting a “phonetic version”. At the age of seventeen, she got her first break as a backing vocalist with the UK band Hollywood Beyond. Paris appeared on their album, ‘If’ (1985).

    The range, power, and sheer soulfulness of Mica Paris’ singing made an immediate impact on the UK music scene in 1988 when she released her debut, when she was 19 years old platinum-selling album, ‘So Good’ from which she had her first top ten hit, ‘My One Temptation’. This led to a collaboration with American soul singer Will Downing and a further smash hit with ‘Where Is The Love’. (During May 2011, ‘So Good (The Deluxe Version)’ was released as a remastered 2-CD on Cherry Red Records in the UK and Europe).

    The follow-up album, ‘Contribution’ was released in 1991. This extended Paris’ soul and gospel influences to bring in hip-hop and house music and featured the track “If I Love U 2 Nite”, written by Prince and recorded at his Paisley Park studios.

    With Omar Lye-Fook, a classically trained musician Paris recorded “I Should’ve Known Better” in 1990. It was issued on the B-side to “South Of The River”. Paris also recorded with Anita Baker, Bonnie Raitt and Natalie Cole on the album Nelson Mandela: An International Tribute for a Free South Africa (1990), and provided the title track to Isaac Julien’s Young Soul Rebels movie soundtrack the following year.

      Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
      I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
      and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

      There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
      She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
