The talented trio of Beverley Knight, Cassidy Janson and Amber Riley have teamed up to create a brand new all-female supergroup "Leading Ladies" and will release an album this November...
The supergroup is the brainchild of three-time MOBO winner Beverley, who has recruited DREAMGIRLS star Amber and Cassidy, who played Carole King in the hit stage show BEAUTIFUL.
She jumped at the chance to try something new after a health scare this year which resulted in her having a hysterectomy.
Beverley said: “I never thought I’d be that person to have some big, life-changing operation. Then I became that person. You get one shot, so suddenly you’re thinking of opportunities. Since the op, I’m just like, ‘Bring it!’ Whatever the universe puts in my lap, I’m ready. And this has been a phenomenal thing to put in my lap.”
"People who buy the Leading Ladies will probably want a CD. So I reckon we’re in with a shot because it’s looking bloody good...To do a whole hour and a half representing the album would be glorious.”
