AWARD-winning singer Mica Paris is set to lend her powerful vocals to a new musical.
Mica will star as Sylvia in Love Me Tender, a new show inspired by and featuring the music of Elvis Presley.
I’m a huge fan of Mica Paris, and as soon as I heard her audition I knew she was perfect for the role of Sylvia.Adam Spiegel, producer
Producer Adam Spiegel said: “I’m a huge fan of Mica Paris and as soon as I heard her audition I knew she was perfect for the role of Sylvia.
“Her incredible, powerful voice and presence does true justice to the greatest hits of the one and only King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley.”
Mica’s career includes Top 10 hit singles and albums worldwide, including My One Temptation, Black Angel, Stay and Carefree.
As well as releasing her own music, Mica has collaborated with, and been a special guest for, many respected artists including Prince, Michael Bolton, Dionne Warwick, Paul Rodgers, David Gilmour and Jools Holland.
From the producers of Hairspray, Jersey Boys and West Side Story, Love Me Tender is a feel-good musical featuring Elvis Presley’s greatest hits.
In a small town in 1950s America, a guitar-playing, hip-swivelling stranger rides his motorbike into town.
Is he The Devil in Disguise or a Hound Dog in his Blue Suede Shoes?
The townsfolk are about to be All Shook Up and could be headed for Heartbreak Hotel, but for Natalie, the love-struck, tomboy mechanic, it really is Now or Never.
The show, which ran as All Shook Up on Broadway, features 25 of the best-loved songs by The King himself.
• Love Me Tender is at Sunderland Empire from July 13-18.
Tickets are available in person at the Box Office on High Street West, from the Ticket Centre on 0844 871 3022 or online at www.ATGtickets.com/Sunderland.
