What do you get when you combine a soul singing West End Star with your favourite Christmas classics? You get Soul Holiday.
“My memories of Christmas live in the music that I listened to while making Christmas dinner with my Grandma Mary. The songs that rang through the house while we unwrapped gifts and prayed together over the food. I wanted to create an album that had all the fixings of a Christmas dinner but with a healthy helping of soul. A Christmas album that you would want to listen to even if it wasn't Christmas. In a world that is in much need of some joy, let's start with the soul.”
On 3rd December Marisha Wallace, currently starring as Effie White in the hugely successful Dreamgirls, will perform 2 intimate concerts, featuring the tracks from Soul Holiday plus a handful of other seasonal favourites. You’ll hear her unique, soul-drenched take on "Do You Hear What I Hear" and "I'll Be Home For Christmas", plus "Joyful Joyful" from the movie Sister Act 2 and lots more. There will also be a special guest* or two dropping in to join the party.
*Rachel Tucker will be our special guest for the 5pm show - and Tyrone Huntley will be a guest at both shows!
