Soul lady Laura Mvula is booked to play a quite tiny (given her award-winning stature) 100-capacity show in London later this month, for charity.

All monies raised from the special ‘audience with…’ date, which takes place at Leicester Square’s glitzy Hippodrome Casino on 29 Aug, will be donated to Centrepoint, an organisation supporting homeless youths aged 16-25.

Ms Mvula says: “I’m really glad that we’re able to support Centrepoint by doing a show. It’s such a great organisation and being able to use music to help get young homeless people off the streets is a huge privilege. Hopefully we raise lots of money!”

As I said, tickets to the show are strictly limited to 100, though I should add that each is priced at £100. Though like the other thing I said, it’s all for charity. So buy buy buy one, or lots, now.

Finally, as fans will already know, Mvula is soon releasing a remake of her 2013 LP ‘Sing To The Moon’, comprising big-band arrangements of all its original tracks featuring the Metropole Orkest.

Sample some of it now via the following two montages:
