Lady Motown is one of the few female singers doing an all-Motown tribute. With her 3-octave vocal range she can belt out songs from not only the girl groups but also from artists like The Temptations Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. She recently performed for hundreds of people weekly in theatres all over the UK as part of the hit Motown show How Sweet It Is.

Lady Motown's solo show comes with a variety of different options. If you'd like a 2-set performance the first set can contain a Diana Ross mini tribute or can focus on the songs of the much loved and recently departed Michael Jackson during his Motown years. Or if for example you'd like some mellow music during a sit-down dinner Shola can provide a jazz set. The second set will then be her trademark “Motown Party” set put together to get people on the dance floor for a good boogie.

Onstage Lady Motown has all the grace glitz and glamour of a true diva and truly looks the part with her graceful silhouette lovely smile and diamante jewellery. She can also slip into a mini dress and go-go boots for a more casual look and loves to “get down” during the party numbers.

Her vocals have been described as sounding like “chocolate soul” and she has a big voice that attracts positive feedback wherever she sings. With a warm inviting stage presence and charming persona it's hard not to be enthralled by her performance.

She spent eight years living in the USA and worked with one of the world's top vocal coaches Seth Riggs (he's coached Stevie Wonder Natalie Cole Michael Jackson and Luther Vandross). Shola has sung at gigs supporting stars like Florence + The Machine, Paul Young and Tony Hadley at top venues such as Shepherd's Bush Empire and Hyde Park and has entertained at many weddings parties and corporate functions in front of audiences as large as 15000. She has also performed overseas in cities such as New York Los Angeles and Moscow. She has also sung in Bahrain and been featured on Iranian TV.

The show can come with just Lady Motown and top notch Bose L1 model II PA suitable for up to 250 people or for events where a full band is required she can provide a 5kW PA full stage lighting disco and sound/lighting engineer for an additional fee.

If you opt for the live jazz show you won't be disappointed. Lady Motown had a year-long residency at Harvey Nichols in London performing her jazz set to many highly satisfied customers. Her band members have played with Courtney Pine Soul II Soul Chaka Khan The Waterboys and other successful acts. She has been praised for her great jazz phrasing and loves singing the standards.

And for when just one diva isn't enough you can book 'The Motown Sisters'. Available in duo or trio format Lady Motown teams up with one or two additional girls. Both are amazing singers in their own right and have appeared in the West End shows 'Dancing in the streets' and 'The Lion King', they have sung  on television and all around the world from Amsterdam to Australia! You are guaranteed an electrifying show of Motown hits!!

For a small additional fee, Lady Motown can also offer a DJ service to save you the hassle and expense of having to book a separate DJ. Lady Motown is also a member of Toastmasters International. She is a humorous public speaker and can be booked to act as MC at your event.

Lady Motown was absolutely brilliant! We run a care home for adults with mental health problems and she performed at our Christmas party. She was really good with the residents and got them all involved in the show; they were singing along and dancing and had a really good time. The staff enjoyed it too and we'd be so happy to have her back for any parties we have in the future. She has a great voice and so much energy and was, by far, the best entertainer we have ever had. Thank you Lady Motown, you have made everyone's Christmas and we can't wait to see you again.

"We had listened to Lady Motown on Alive Network's website to get as much a flavour of her performance as possible - nothing could have prepared for the overwhelming performance our guests experienced. Communications prior to event were timely; professional and I felt Lady Motown was listening carefully during pre communications. This was clearly obvious on the day as she knew exactly what was required of her. Thank you Lady Motown and thank you Alive Network. You both did us proud. I would rebook and recommend without any hesitation."

"Hi Lady Motown,

You made our night really special. Everyone loved you. What a star.

You brought quality and glamour to a very appreciative audience that I am sure would encourage all of their friends to make sure wherever you perform is equally well attended!

Thanks so much and hope to have you back again in the future."
