CLEO HIGGINS lead singer of 80s polo group CLEOPATRA (Comin’ Atcha!) heads cast of THRILLER LIVE in Blackpool
Cleo Higgins, lead singer of 80s group CLEOPATRA (Comin’ Atcha!) will star in Thriller Live in Blackpool…. and this is just a glimpse of what you’re in for….
Michael Jackson and Cleo Higgins were both successful child stars… singing in pop groups with their siblings and managed by their parents. As lead singer of Cleopatra, aged 13, Cleo was signed to Madonna’s Maverick label in the US. She had 3 Top 5 hits, 2 hit TV series, sang for the Pope and supported The Spice Girls on tour. In 2013 Cleo reached the final stages of The Voice with Will.i.am calling her “a superstar!”
Sensational Cleo Higgins, lead singer of 90s pop group Cleopatra and Will.i.am’s unforgettable contestant on The Voice, is heads the international tour cast of Thriller Live after a year in the West End, where she earned rave reviews for her incredible Jackson-like vocals.
“I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan and I identify with him,” said Cleo. “I’m an Eighties baby – I come from the same era. When he died I literally cried every day for a year. His death reminded me how connected I felt to him as a person and musician, but I didn’t recognise how strong those links were until then. My favourite song I get to perform in the show is They Don’t Really Care About Us. I get to feel the energy Michael gave when he sang, when it was recorded. I get right into that zone and I feel every word. We celebrate his incredible legacy in Thriller Live. His songs will never die.”
Higgins, from Birmingham, is one of four lead vocalists who divide up Jackson’s catalogue of chart hits between them.
What the papers say:
“A TOTAL BLAST. The staging and constant brilliance of the musicians keep us riveted. A WONDERFUL SHOW.”
“This theatrical extravaganza is a breathtaking celebration – QUITE LITERALLY, THRILLING.”
“A glitzy concert of song and dance. THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING.”
“Dazzlingly well-drilled and brilliantly done.”
