Regarded by many as one of our country’s best pop singers and interpreters of songs, Mari Wilson (aka The Neasden Queen Of Soul) will be hitting the road and coming to Helmsley Arts Centre on Saturday 16 March, with her incredible live ‘Pop Deluxe’ show.
Mari Wilson first arrived on the scene in the early 80's with her skyscraper beehive hairdo, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band 'The Wilsations'. Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event - pure entertainment!
A mainstay of Top Of The Pops (and an avid collector of Tupperware), Mari released six hit singles, the biggest being ʻJust What I Always Wantedʼ and ʻCry Me A Riverʼ, both taken from her classic album ʻShowpeopleʼ.
Mari’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Pop Deluxe, (her album of songs previously made famous by Dusty, Cilla, Petula and Sandie) continues to be a big part of her fabulous show, together with her well known hits and a few surprises.
