57 North Presents: Millicent

Local soul songstress Millicent graces shmuFM

This week on 57° North Presents, we're delighted to feature local soul songstress Millicent! They appeared live on the 57 North Presents on Monday the 13th of March from 8-10pm.

Millicent is a Nigerian-born soul singer, songwriter and blogger based right here in Aberdeen. She released her debut EP, ‘Voyage’ in January 2017. Her songs address social issues such as depression, addiction, love, self-discovery, acceptance and human interaction in a straight-from-the-heart, yet enjoyable way.

Inspired by her faith and legendary soul singers such as Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, Roberta Flack, Shirley Caesar, and Sade, she is known for her soul stirring renditions and work with local charities. In 2014 and 2015, Millicent performed at The Friends of ANCHOR’s ‘Courage on the Catwalk’ event to raise funds for cancer treatment and research.

Millicent performs live at various events around Aberdeen and is also a member of the band at her local church.
