She was awarded an MBE by The Queen in 2007 for her services to British music and her charity work, has won three MOBO Awards, and been nominated for Best Female at the Brit Awards three times and for the Mercury Music Prize twice. Her live performances have gained her a legion of famous fans, from David Bowie to Prince, Take That to Quincy Jones.
Performances include: supporting Prince at his 21 Nights O2 shows in 2007 and he was so taken by Beverley’s live set that he flew her to LA in 2008 to perform with him at his post-Oscars party, where they were joined on stage by Stevie Wonder. She supported Take That on their reunion arena tour, joining them on stage for ‘Relight My Fire’. Wolverhampton-born Beverley has toured the UK several times in her own right over the last decade and a half and has sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall on three occasions since she debuted there in 2007.
Recordings include: her latest critically acclaimed album, Soul UK, which entered the Top 15 in 2011, in which she pays tribute to the British soul artists who inspired her, including Soul II Soul, Loose Ends, Omar and Roachford. Also 2009's 100%, her first independently released album, as well as Music City Soul and gold selling albums Prodigal Sista, Who I Am and Affirmation. Beverley is currently working on her eighth studio album.

Other work includes: Beverley is an ambassador for charities including Christian Aid and has travelled to areas affected by disease and poverty to help raise awareness. She is an active campaigner for anti-Aids organisations the Stop AIDS Campaign and the Terrence Higgins Trust. In summer 2012, she wowed a 1 billion viewing audience with the song ‘I Am What I Am’ at the finale of the London 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony. Speaking after the ceremony, Beverley said: ‘Being a part of the show was not only awe inspiring but thought provoking. I was so proud to have been sharing the stage with true supermen and women.’
