Ola Onabule @ Ronnie Scott’s jazz club, London

Born in the UK but raised in his parents’ home country of Nigeria, an early exposure to James Brown in concert convinced Ola Onabule that he wanted to be a singer.

Pursuing this ambition has seen him onstage alongside artists such as George Michael, Joe Zawinul, Roberta Flack and Gladys Knight.

He released his sixth studio album, The Devoured Man, in 2007 on Rugged Ram Records, which he set up himself to put out his material.

A passionate singer and songwriter, his strong yet sensitive vocals are bolstered by an incredible four octave range and are often influenced by hints of his African roots.

Random trivia: Ola Onabule performed at the David & Victoria Beckhams’ wedding!?

Catch the smooth London soul singer with 6 albums under his belt live at Ronnie Scott’s (London) next week – September 11th, 12th & 13th.

Tickets are £20, £26, and £36. www.ronniescotts.co.uk

Amy at V Festival

Check out this footage of Amy Winehouse performing ‘Rehab’ on the main stage of the UK’s V Festival last weekend…

The deliciously-voiced Rahsaan Patterson, who also performed at V Festival, commented on his MySpace blog,

i adore her gift and talent.
and understand a human’s right to do what they want.
and understand addictive nature….indeed.
but to see that she has no one on her side to at least make her take a BATH ………?

it hurt to witness such a thing.

Visit Rahsaan’s MySpace blog to read the full entry.
