was raised in a strict Catholic home in Wolverhampton and was allowed to hear only gospel music as a child. She continues this background with her radio show «Beverly’s Gospel Nights» on BBC2. As one of the best soul singers from Britan she has received three MOBO awards and after more than a decade in the industry – the name says it all – was given a knighthood by the Queen in 2007.
His voice is so authoritarian. It's almost like my dad would speak to me. It also reminds me of my dad singing me into my sleep when I was a child.
I just came back from a beach holiday. And I listened a lot to Chaka Khan. So let's say «Move Me No Mountain» by her. All of her songs feel like sunshine to me!
I like the voice of N'Dea Davenport. And I think this song would be perfect for this occasion.
Oh my god, when I go to a club and they play that... I'm so happy!
That's easy as well. I got an iPod system in my kitchen and I only got Reggae on it. So I would listen to John Holt's "1000 Volt". I only cook Carribean cuisine, cuz I basically can't cook. That's the only meals I know.
That would really piss them off. Cuz my neighbours are quite old.
I normally listen to hiphop or R&B in my car. So it could be «Crazy In Love», cuz it's got such a driving beat.
When she talks about how he was too busy loving himself, and now he's loving someone else after all this time and how she wasted all her years and how she should have left him long time ago... It's just a great song when you're down in the dump and you can feel even more miserable.
That's an easy one. That song makes me shiver.
Oh my god! I need something that would give me courage, something so loud I would forget what I'm actually doing, something that can hypnotize me. Maybe «Stairway To Heaven». Cuz that's where I probably would end up anyway...
I never played ping pong in my life! I'm absolutely rubbish with everything that has to do with a ball and a racket. If I would try it though, I would listen to "Hey Boy Hey Girl". Cuz it's quite hectic and I love that tune!
The whole album. Cuz when I'm on a journey I need to hear a voice that is as flawless as possible. And Aretha's voice is just that - absolutely flawless!
I'd need something to ease my mind. I couldn't listen to something scary like Dr. Dre...
Lately I was listening to «Back To Black». I kinda has a carmic influence on me. It's very well produced and I really like her voice. Songs like these help me when I have to wait for something to happen.
I just love Earth, Wind & Fire. They are so lively and timeless. And I absolutely love that song and it makes me so happy!
I normally listen to my own songs. So I can focus on which guitar is where out of tune. Stuff like that.
