Preview: Soul Women Unite @ Cadogan Hall (London; Saturday 8th June 2019)


Five leading females will be coming together for a one-off collaboration at Cadogan Hall for London Saxophone Festival 2019. The show will feature a quintet of astonishing ladies oozing spirit and soul: Carleen Anderson, Terri Walker, YolanDa Brown, Ayanna Witter-Johnson, and Judi Jackson.

Soul singer Carleen Anderson was described by James Brown as “Not just good, but phenomenal, one of kind”. Daughter of the singer Vicki Anderson and stepdaughter of Bobby Byrd, she is known for her simple and yet magical ability to perform with effortless and almost impossible vocal abilities.

Terri Walker is an accomplished R’n’B songstress who refuses to stay bound by a single genre and flings gracefully between soul, dance, reggae, and hip hop. Alongside Walker, rising star and singer Judi Jackson is definitely one to keep your eye on and a firm favourite of Rhythm Passport HQ. She brings integrity, truth and raw emotion through her insane vocal force, and is a rare talent to see.

The three singers will be joined by UK saxophonist YolanDa Brown and songwriter and cellist Ayanna-Witter Johnson.

Collectively, the five ladies have won over thirty awards, and this feels like a chance to not only be a part of a beautiful union of raw energetic power but also to see the soul collaboration of the year!
