One of our favourite events of the summer in Leicester, Ladies Day at Leicester Racecourse is getting even bigger with the announcement of two more stars joining All Saints and Mark Wright on stage on the day.  80s star Jaki Graham and 2016 chart star Karen Harding will also be taking to the stage at the event on Saturday 8 July with tickets on sale now.

Jaki Graham was the biggest selling black British female solo artist of the 80’s with hits including ‘Could It Be I’m Falling in Love’, ‘Round and Around’, ‘Set Me Free’, ‘Breaking Away’ and many more. Opening the doors for many female artists in the UK, Jaki even achieved a No.1 in the US Billboard Dance Charts for 5 weeks with her version of Chaka Khan’s ‘Ain’t Nobody’.  Her energetic live performances and outstanding vocals mean the crowd will be in for a real treat!

If that’s not enough, Karen Harding will also be there after having one hell of a year in 2016. Karen’s smash debut single ‘Say Something’ stormed into the Top 10, co-written and produced with Grammy-nominated MNEK and now certified gold with over 10 million video views. The 23 year-old Newcastle girl has been forging her own path with her stand-out style and sizeable vocal talents and 2017 looks to be a huge year.
