Pre Awards MOBO

UK’s finest Soul, Jazz and Gospel singers honoured at first ever Pre-MOBO Awards Show

We are pleased to announce the very first MOBO Awards pre-show to celebrate the UK’s finest talents in R&B, Soul, Jazz and Gospel music.

The inaugural invite only event will feature presentations of the MOBO Best R&B/Soul Act, Best Jazz Act and Best Gospel Act awards, as well as unforgettable performances from a mix of established acts and emerging talents.

Hosted by American gospel music star Marvin Winans Jr, the pre-show gala will feature performances by Mica Paris, Omar, Dora Martin, Misha B, Courtney Pine CBE, Julia Biel, Faith Child, and Annastasia Baker.

Faith Child, who is nominated for Best Gospel Act, said: “I’m stoked to be up again for a MOBO! Traditional gospel music is notably one of the foundations of music of black origin and it’s great that MOBO acknowledge that.”
