M People vocalist Heather Small will perform a hit-filled set at Newmarket this summer when she supports 80s pop duo Bananarama.
As part of M People, Small became one of the seminal British voices of the 1990s, with hits such as Moving On Up, One Night In Heaven and Search For The Hero.
She has also enjoyed great success with two solo albums - the title track of her Proud album has gone on to become the soundtrack synonymous to a whole host of sporting events, including London's successful 2012 Olympic bid.
Small will open Newmarket Nights on Friday, August 9 for Bananarama.
