Lisa Stansfield recalls the sounds of her generation, introducing some of her all-time jukebox favourites. Reliving her teenage clubbing years, she shares with us why there’s a special place in her heart for Diana Ross, what Chaka Khan and Adele have in common for her and remembers the songs about losing love that have moved her the most. Her eclectic list includes Patsy Cline’s ‘Crazy’, Candi Staton’s ‘Young Hearts Run Free’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’.
Lisa Stansfield performs at The Queen’s Hall on Tuesday. Back after an eight year hiatus with a new album, the Brit Award winning artist is one of the most successful UK vocalists of all time. She was thrust into the limelight back in 1989 when her talents featured on Coldcut’s seminal People Hold On. However, it was her solo number one All Around the World that cemented her place in the hearts of the worldwide music scene so expect highlights from her sultry back catalogue too. i-on magazine talks to Lisa - words by Stu Todd
Lisa Stansfield, soul superstar, is sat in a nondescript office a few miles from her north London home, munching wine gums (the red ones are her favourite). She's wearing a fake-fur coat big enough for Pavarotti and there's a smudge of red lipstick on her full lips that makes those hazel eyes pop. Oh, and she's lost her phone. Again.
