Corinne Bailey Rae
In our emerging artist series, Corrine Bailey Rae delivers a slice of sublime blues delivered with a voice that pins you, in the softest but most persuasive of ways, to the wall; a voice that floats up effortlessly, full of subtlety and the very purest quality. The voice belongs to a young woman from the UK. Her name is Corinne Bailey Rae, and she was born to sing. "I started off singing in church, I suppose, but people think it must have been a gospel church because of the whole, you know, black assumption," she says in reference to her mixed-race background. "But it wasn't gospel at all, it was just your regular brethren church, very middle-class, where we would sing these harmonies every Sunday. Fast Focus presents Corinne Bailey Rae.
