British Soul Queen Beverley Knight Nominated For Best Actress In A Musical At The 2015 Olivier Awards
Multi award winning British Soul singer Beverley Knight has been nominated for the Best Actress In A Musical award at this year’s Olivier Awards - for her performance in Memphis The Musical. Memphis is the most nominated show at the 2015 awards, to be held on April 12th at London’s Royal Opera House with an incredible 9 nominations, including Best New Musical. The show sees Beverley play the role of Felicia, a club singer who is given her big break by a radio DJ intent on changing the world against a backdrop of racial tension and forbidden love in 1950s Memphis, Tennessee.
This new frontier for the multi Mobo Award winning and BRIT nominated singer and songwriter follows her acclaimed West End debut in 2013 playing Rachel Marron in hit show, The Bodyguard, which was extended to a run of 9 months. Beverley is best known as one of the UK’s most consistent recording artists of the last 15 years, in which she has sold over a million albums in the UK, including one platinum and four gold certified records.
