A STAGE show honouring the talent, music and memory of Whitney Houston is heading to Carlisle this autumn.

The Greatest Love Of All is a critically-acclaimed live concert featuring the breathtaking vocals of Belinda Davids, accompanied by a fabulous six-piece live band and dancers.

It will arrive at the Sands Centre on Saturday October 27, and tickets are available now.

A beautifully-crafted tribute to one of the world’s most revered singers, the two-hour production will take the audience on a heartfelt musical journey through Houston’s greatest hits, including I Will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, How Will I Know, One Moment in Time, I Have Nothing, Run to You, Didn’t We Almost Have It All, Greatest Love of All, I’m Every Woman, Exhale (Shoop Shoop) and more.

Directed by Johnny Van Grinsven and launched in 2013, the show has already wowed audiences across the US, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Asia, UAE, Australia and New Zealand.

For accomplished South African songstress Belinda Davids, starring in The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show is the culmination of a life-long connection with the superstar to whom she pays homage.

Davids beat almost 15,000 other hopefuls to take on the role and it was her own eternal love of Houston that prepared her for the show.

Exposed mainly to R&B and gospel as a child, she was innately drawn to Houston’s musical style. Singing professionally from her early teens, Houston songs became a fixture in Davids’ live shows. “I think I’ve sung at least one Houston track in almost every live show I’ve ever performed,” says Davids.

Now representing her idol on stage, she feels destined: “I’ve essentially prepared my whole life for this show and I feel privileged to be able to honour Whitney in such a way.”

The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show comes to the Sands Centre on Saturday October 27, from 7.30pm, and tickets are available from the venue's box office.
