The Greatest Love of All launches a major UK tour at the London Palladium

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

A MAJOR UK tour of The Greatest Love of All, a critically acclaimed live concert honouring the talent, music and memory of Whitney Houston, will launch at the London Palladium on Sunday, May 19, 2019.

The two-hour production, starring Belinda Davids, winner of BBC One’s Even Better Than The Real Thing, is a heartfelt musical journey through Whitney 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, Queen of the Night, and many more.

Belinda Davids made her British TV debut in 2017 and left viewers stunned by the similarities between the South-African born singer and the late pop diva. She went on to be crowned winner of the Even Better Than The Real Thing and a 9-date tour of major UK theatres followed, culminating in an unforgettable night at London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo.

All the media attention in the UK led to an invitation to appear on stage at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theatre – where Houston recorded the video for The Greatest Love of All – before its famously critical audience. It was an intense and nerve-wracking occasion but Davids’ rendition of I Will Always Love You received a standing ovation from one of New York’s harshest audiences, and Davids now counts the experience as one of her career highlights.

Belinda Davids is no stranger to being the best of the best. In 2012, she auditioned against over 15,000 hopefuls from all over the world to play the part of her idol, Whitney Houston in a new show designed to showcase her incredible legacy. The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show opened to critical acclaim and has since toured the globe, wowing audiences across the US, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Asia, UAE, Australia and New Zealand.

Produced by Derek Nicol and Paul Walden for Flying Entertainment and Showtime Australia, The Greatest Love of All is directed by Johnny Van Grinsven.

The Greatest Love of All is suitable for ages 16+.
