Kerry Ellis to perform at PINKLondon2023
Recognised as the leading lady of West End musicals from her starring roles in London and on Broadway, Kerry Ellis has also achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist, and we are delighted to announce that she will be performing at #PINKLondon2023 to mark the start of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month 🎀
Kerry originated the role of Meat, in We Will Rock You and was the first British Elphaba in the West End smash, Wicked, for which Kerry won the 2008 What's On Stage Award for ‘Best Takeover in a Role’. She then immediately transferred to Broadway and played Elphaba at the Gershwin Theatre for 6 months, where she won the Broadway.com Audience Award for Favourite Female Breakthrough Performance, before returning to London for 6 months in 2009 ✨️
Her many other leading role credits include Nancy in Oliver! at Drury Lane, Eliza Doolittle My Fair Lady, Ellen in Miss Saigon and Fantine in Les Miserables.
Kerry’s first major CD release was the amazing Wicked in Rock, a collaboration with long-time friend and Queen guitarist, Brain May which led to her being signed to Universal as a solo recording artist. The success of the album led to a major tour Anthems: The Concert throughout 2011, which kicked off at the Royal Albert Hall and numerous TV performances. Her new album, Kings and Queens, is out now and features tracks with Sir Brian May and Newton Faulkner. Recorded in LA and London, the album is produced by the award-winning producer Mike Stevens (Annie Lennox, ELO, James Morrison, Take That) 💖
