Congratulations to Blackpool born singer-songwriter Karima Francis, who last night signed a record deal with Mercury Records.. literally moments before taking to the stage as support act for Smith and Burrows. Understandably over whelmed, she gave a very heartfelt, emotional performance, saying how she wanted to tell her life story in a half an hour, but it just wasn’t possible.. well eh.. maybe for the best karima!
It was already crystal clear, she had hard earned her position and subsequent record deal.. none of it came easy to her.
Needless to say you can really feel the pain and emotion in her voice, its all soul and heart.. nothing like a singer who sings from their heart.
I must say, style wise? this girl is just the coolest looking dude I’ve ever seen. I love her authentic, androgynous look.. IT IS HER! without a doubt and unapologetically. I have never seen skinny jeans on legs so skinny.. and that hair!?… She just emulates rock star, oozing cool in a Bob Dylan kind of way.
Its always a pleasure to see a young talented artist work hard and succeed.. so congratulations Karima. Fair feckin play!
Now that you’ve noted her style.. Have a listen to her incredible voice below.. love this song x
