"Aarons flexes her muscular, jazz-inflected vocals [...] She also shone on cuts from the Lioness album, including a jaunty rendition of ‘The Girl From Ipanema’ "

The House that Soul Built

Anna's professional singing career started with a TfL Busking licence, where she would often get compared to Amy by passers-by; this then gave her the idea to produce the show. As a big Amy fan, it was important for her to ensure the show was an experience for the audience to enjoy and remember Amy, as well as showing a true dedication to her work.

Anna and the band are looking forward to returning to the stage with their new band members and special guest for another very special evening remembering Amy.


Meet Lara Ziff, a soulful artist from London who’s style is a fusion of upbeat soulful pop, with a hint of jazz and R&B. She’s heavily inspired by the likes of Alicia Keys and Amy Winehouse but takes influence from all types of music. Lara has just released her first single Rosé, and is due to release the rest of her EP this year.
