An acclaimed contestant on BBC’s The Voice has revealed that his talent is inherited from his father — a chazan at Newbury Park United Synagogue in Ilford — and his mother, who is also “an amazing singer”.
It is 22 years since Primal Scream released a truly important album (Screamadelica) and 13 years since their last great one (XTRMNTR). The former captured the heady moment when house music entered the mainstream; the latter was the most successful example of the band’s rampant eclecticism.
Late Jewish singing sensation Amy Winehouse is known for her top selling 'Back to Black' single – and international star Beyoncé Knowles has now released a cover of the hit. But not everyone is happy about it.
Mitch Winehouse, the late star’s father, said that he had not been consulted on the release of the cover that can now be heard on The Great Gatsby film trailer.
