Crisp N' Fresh: Beverley Unleashes Her Inner LaBelle

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Beverley Knight takes it to the stage with her homage to the intergalactic funky side of music in her new video for the spunky single, "In Your Shoes". Here Miss Knight recalls back those sacred days where musicians performed on live music themed shows a la Solid Gold. All the elements are here...neon tubing backgrounds, ground smoke machines and outlandish stage outfits. I'm getting the sense Beverley Knight was inspired by the attire of LaBelle, as she's giving me strong Nona Hendryx vibes in the get-up she is sporting in this.

As for rapper Chipmunk being included in this video....unnecessary.

  1. I love this video, not only does it have my man Nate James featured at the very beginning (YAY), but it's also a very hot song. I have so much respect for Beverley Knight as an artist, she's so talented and still someone with pretty limited success, she deserves so much more recognition. She, along with Nate James are two of the UK's best talents here at the moment, both are VERY underrated and still manage to pour out amazing album after amazing album.

    As for Chipmunk, not a fan of his music, but I can see he's very popular here at the moment and maybe that will play a role in her single gaining some love and recognition. I prefer the version without him on it anyway, which is what the radio station near us are playing anyway. lol
