Brit award winner Shola Ama has joined the line-up for Greenwich Music Time 2017 .

The London-born singer made it big in the 90s with 1997 with her platinum debut album Much Love which spawned four Top Ten singles.

They included her cover of Turley Richards’ You Might Need Somebody.

She went on to win a Brit Award for Best British Female and two MOBO Awards for Best Newcomer and Best R&B Act.

More recently, in October 2015, she released a eight track EP featuring new reggae influenced tracks titled Surreal.

And in April she featured on album System Killer by Frisco.

The 38-year-old will now be heading to The Old Royal Naval College as support for headliner Alexander O’Neal on Tuesday, July 4.

Also on the bill for this years festival are Little Mix, Cliff Richard, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe and The Jacksons.

It runs from June 30 – July 7 at the 5000-capacity Old Royal Naval College on the banks of the Thames in Greenwich.

All the concerts will be held outside between the two college buildings, overlooking the Thames and Canary Wharf.

They will go ahead if it rains, unless conditions become dangerous, so guests should arrive prepared.

Doors open at 6pm and the shows start at 7pm each day.
