Singers Tessa Niles and Gina Foster have performed with some of the most iconic artists in music.

Their resumes feature an untouchable array of stars: Eric Clapton, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Natalie Cole, Annie Lennox, The Rolling Stones, Michael McDonald, Grace Jones, Tina Turner, Robbie Williams and Elton John to name just a few.

Their Unsung Singers show is a musical celebration of the history of British backing vocalists. Surprisingly it’s often the backing vocals on a record that people remember most. What would Joe Cocker’s signature tune sound like without the mighty female chorus on ‘Get By With a Little Help From My Friends’ or Pink Floyd’s wailing diva on ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’? Who are these anonymous singers and what are their stories? Unsung Singers pays respect to Britain’s greatest backing vocalists through storytelling and performing the hits on which they featured.
