It’s been a long time since the UK could with conviction, boast about the emergence of a true soul singer.
Welcome to the world of Annastasia Baker - a MOBO award nominee; Former X Factor Contestant with rave reviews from Simon Cowell, school champion hurdler and a business owner (she owns her own driving school).
Her Debut Album ‘You Turn’ is full of songs redolent of a young woman that has overcome multiple setbacks in life. Annastasia's daughter developed diabetes at the age of three and they have fought it daily since with Annastasia working closely with Diabetes UK as a celebrity ambassador for the charity.
“This album is everything I have dreamt my debut album would be, the songs come from the heart, and I hope they can serve as an inspiration to others.”
Also under her belt, she auditioned for a TV series called Time2Shine, the UK’s most popular gospel talent show. Here she flourished and sailed all the way through to the finals, where she was crowned the winner. A MOBO Award nominee, she has performed at the Houses of Parliament.
Life has been a whirlwind ever since, Legend Kirk Franklin spontaneously invited Annastasia on stage to sing a couple of songs with him, during his London concert. Having come off a solid tour around America, where she picked up momentum and recently played a sold out show at the Jazz Café in London.
She then headlined the 2000 capacity Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London feat special guest Grammy Award Winner Erica Campbell from the duo “Mary Mary”. Following her tour, the US market has really embraced her music and the future looks extremely promising for Annastasia Baker.
Following a short hiatus from music, while she spent time with family and expanded her businesses, Annastasia is thrilled to be back in the studio working on her sophomore album.
