Deep in the heart of Shepherd’s Bush sits the Bush Hall, an intimate building built in 1904 as a dancehall but over the years has turned into a fully-fledged live venue hosting everything from comedy gigs to live music.

For contemporary London musician, Judith Hill, a venue like this must seem quite intimate especially when you look down her more than impressive CV. Having provided backing vocals for iconic artists as Michael Jackson, Prince, and Josh Groban, Hill was chosen in 2009 as Jackson’s duet partner for the song “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” during his This Is It rehearsals. After Jackson’s death in 2009, she, along with the rest of the This Is It cast members, performed at Jackson’s memorial service and attracted global attention when she sang the lead on the song “Heal the World”.

The talented singer, who was described by The Voice’s judge Adam Levine as “going to be a Grammy-winning superstar, and she’s on my team” arrived in London to perform a fourteen song set, this show comes in support of her new album, ‘Letters From A Black Widow’. Inspired by online hate recieved after the deaths of both Jackson and Prince, album tracks feature heavily in the set including “Flame”, “One of the Bad Ones,” and “More Than Love”.

The rest of the Summer will see Hill performing at festivals all across Europe making this a rare opportunity to see one contemporary music’s talents in more intimate surroundings. For all the details on which festival you can catch Judith Hill at, head over to her Official Website.
