Emma Hatton announces solo concert

It has been announced that West End star Emma Hatton will play a one-night-only solo concert next month.

Entitled Merry Christmas, Darling, the concert takes place on Sunday 13th December at 7.30pm at Kettner’s Soho on Romilly Street. 

Described as a "celebration of all things Christmas", Hatton will be joined by some special guests and backed up by a trio of professional musicians. 

Hatton, who is currently starring as Elphaba in Wicked, said: "I’m incredibly excited to be performing my solo show at Kettner’s. I’ve always had an absolute passion for jazz, blues and soul and to perform the music of my inspirations, Ella Fitzgerald, Irving Berlin and so many more, is an absolute honour. 

"Christmas is my favourite time of year, music is my lifeblood and of course everyone loves good food so to combine it all in one wonderfully indulgent evening is sheer heaven for me – hopefully our audience will feel the same!"

UPDATE (4/12/15): Special guests have been announced for Hatton's concert. She will be joined by jazz vocalist Anthony Strong, her former We Will Rock You co-star Katie Paine and her current Fiyero Oliver Savile.

UPDATE (7/12/15): Hatton's EP Merry Christmas, Darling is avaliable to download now via iTunes.

Hatton joined the West End production of Wicked in 2013 as the standby for Elphaba before taking over the role full time in February this year. Her theatre credits include: understudy Scaramouche/Meat in We Will Rock You (Dominion), Donna in Dreamboats & Petticoats (Savoy/Playhouse/UK tour),  A Comedy of Eric's (New Vic, Stoke), When Midnight Strikes (Finborough) and Christmas in New York (Apollo Theatre), 

Her extensive performance credits include singing regularly at Ronnie Scott’s and the Savoy Hotel. Hatton will release a Christmas EP shortly featuring the talents of acclaimed jazz vocalist Anthony Strong and her track 'Mad About the Boy' appears on the London Gay Big Band album Brave recorded this year at Abbey Road.
