London based MOBO Award winner Lurine Cato has embarked on a new path in her solo career. Known for her 5 octave range and energetic stage performances after working with some of the industry’s top luminaries such as Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell, Twinkie Clark, Andrea Bocelli, Enrique Iglesias and Mary J. Blige, the BEFFTA Award winning singer has also proved herself to be a talented and sought after songwriter. Ninth of eleven siblings and encouraged by her father and a loving mother, her first performance took place at the COGIC’s London, UK’s National Convention at the tender age of 3, this proved to be a defining moment in which she felt a special calling.
Since then, Lurine has gone on to tour the world as a back ground vocalist, most notably touring the globe with Australian super star Kylie Minogue and providing backing vocals on Adele’s debut project ‘19’. Her vocals can also be heard on albums for Susan Boyle and Leona Lewis which has kept her busy both as a backing singer and solo artist on numerous European tours. Within recent years she has been invited to present music workshops in countries like Italy, Spain, France, Germany and Scandinavian countries. While meticulously managing a busy schedule, Lurine still finds time to support charitable causes, this she espouses to be a central part of who she is. She currently supports and works with several charitable organisations including the Children’s Society, a charity that helps lift almost 4 million children out of poverty and is currently about to begin working with yet another charity, the Diana Award Charity as a guest mentor.
A recipient of the Premier Gospel Award (Best Female Artist) and GMA, Italy, (Best International Vocalist of the Year), Lurine releases the most highly anticipated debut album of 2016 titled Chosen To Serve.
