Beverley Knight said, “I'm thrilled to be sharing my rendition of ‘Fabulous, baby!' beyond the walls of the West End. The music of Alan Menken is a true gift, we have such fun performing this number in the show. I'm pleased we got to take it into the studio and share this with you all.”

The new recording features the London 2024 cast of SISTER ACT, produced by Musical Supervisor Stephen Brooker and recorded and mixed at Dean Street Studios.
