This week, Havering Council had an exclusive interview with one of the artists who will be performing at the show – 90’s dance sensation Angie Brown and here’s what Angie had to say about her music, career and the Havering Show. 

Your biggest hit ‘I’m Gonna get you’ is still popular today, how do you feel when you’re performing this and what do you think made it so big?
It just has the right combination that clubbers wanted to hear. It has a really catchy hook, which is easy to learn, and easier to listen to, and it's relentlessly repetitive! My vocal along with the production hasn't dated at all and that's why it still gets played on the radio and sounds as good today as it did 27 years ago.

What do you like most about performing?
I love performing and singing live, it’s the feedback from a live audience that is priceless.

Who’s your favourite artist?
Aretha Franklin, without a doubt, the sister has got 'chops'.

What will you say to people to encourage them to see you perform at the Havering Show?
Come along because you have never seen a performer like me. I'm fully 'out there' and I’m a little bit too much for some people, (marmite) but I call it 'cutting edge'. I like entertaining people it's completely liberating, and if the people of Havering want to be entertained then I'm their girl!
