THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL Starring Belinda Davids Returns to the UK and Ireland
Whitney Houston fans are in for a treat this Autumn when The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show starring BeLinda Davids returns to the UK and Ireland for a second tour after wowing local audiences in 2016.
The tour follows star BeLinda Davids' jaw dropping performances and win on BBC One's music television special, "Even Better Than The Real Thing" from the weekend.
The show brought together the world's top tribute artists for a glamorous night of performing and competing with music from the likes of George Michael, Little Mix, Amy Winehouse and Bruno Mars, performed by tribute artists who are the very best in the game.
The respected tribute artist performed Houston's "I Have Nothing" as a solo artist and "It's Not Right But It's Okay" alongside Dajiow from Thriller Live - West End.
After two rounds of competitive singing, BeLinda Davids took home the crown gaining many supportive followers and admirers including host Paddy Mcguinness.
This week, Belinda continues the final two weeks of The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show's 2017 UK tour.
"The UK's a hard market to crack because it's an entertainment hub, there's so much competition, but we got incredible responses from every audience, standing ovations every night, and it's a testament to the quality of the show. We're excited to be bringing it back," says Director Johnny Van Grinsven.
The show has gone from success to success since its inception in 2013, boasting sell-out shows in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe and the UK already, and dates for Hollywood Bowl booked for 2018.
The two-hour stage show - an uplifting tribute to the music and memory of Whitney Houston - features the breathtaking vocal talent of South African songstress BeLinda Davids who has the hard task of performing over two hours of Houston's biggest Pop hits and ballads live on stage.
But there is no person better equipped to do so. In addition to having a voice described as "jaw-droppingly similar" to the pop diva, Davids openly acknowledges that Houston is her personal idol and was the original inspiration for her own career when she began singing professionally at the age of 14.
"I want people to come and remember Whitney when she was at the top of her game and when she was fabulous", says Davids.
Audiences will get to hear Davids sing 20 of Houston's most loved tracks from the full span of her 29-year career, including I Will Always Love You, Greatest Love of All, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, I Have Nothing, One Moment In Time, Run To You, Saving All My Love, Queen of the Night, Million Dollar Bill and I'm Every Woman.
A seven-piece live band, choreographed dancers, exquisite replica costuming and state-of-the-art lighting and effects combine to create a spectacular concert experience and special event worthy of Houston's treasured legacy.
