SHEFFIELD-based singer Philippa Hanna has been announced as the support act for superstar Lionel Richie’s forthcoming tour.
Rising star Philippa, a modern ‘European gospel’ singer who recently completed her own 30-date headline tour of the UK, will join Lionel for 11 British dates of his Tuskegee Tour, which arrives in England on October 26 at Birmingham.
The Barnsley-born artist said: “My dad is a singer, and I grew up listening to him singing Lionel’s songs. In fact, he even once recorded Three Times a Lady as a Valentine’s gift for my mum! Now I get to join him on tour!”
Philippa is currently writing and recording a new album alongside Sheffield-based Grammy award-winning producer Eliot Kennedy.
Her current single, I Am Amazing, features members of the Sheffield public displaying their proudest moments on a chalkboard, and has already racked up over 30,000 online views around the world.
