20201225Soul diva Mica Paris returns to her gospel roots at Christmas.

Mica’s love of music started with the gospel records played at home by her family and the music she heard in church, where her singing talent was discovered and nurtured. She returns to some of the first records that moved her, to curate the perfect soundtrack for Christmas morning.

Mica explored the revival of gospel music in pop earlier this year in her BBC documentary ‘Gospel According To Mica', and has now recorded her first ever gospel album.

Mica says: ‘Gospel was my first musical love, so I’m thrilled that I’ll be sharing my favourite gospel songs with Radio 2 listeners on Christmas Day morning.’

From the Edwin Hawkin Singers to The Kingdom Choir, via The Clarke Sisters, Sam Cooke, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and Mariah Carey, Mica presents Christmas classics and rare gospel gems that stir the soul and get the Christmas celebrations started.
